WeVideo and Google Team Up to Bring Chromebook-based Digital Storytelling to UK and Nordics Schools

May 9, 2017 / By

The Google Creative Apps for Chromebooks has been incredibly popular since its launch in the U.S. in June 2016. The program provides a specially priced package that includes the complete WeVideo for Schools cloud-based, collaborative, digital storytelling application—with video editing, green screen, voice over narration, screencasting and more—bundled with new Chromebooks purchased for education.
As the exclusive video editing partner for this program, we’re thrilled to announce that this program has been expanded and is now available to schools in the UK and Nordic Countries. The combination of WeVideo and Chromebooks is unbeatable. Of course, students and teachers get access to the most comprehensive digital storytelling tools to address the entire range of projects in today’s digital classroom.  Robust Google G Suite for Education integration ensures privacy, security and makes it easy for administrators to provision and manage users, groups, schools and districts.
Because WeVideo does all its processing in the cloud, it turns every one of those new Chromebooks into a high performance video editing powerhouse. There’s never any software to update, so WeVideo is a true zero-maintenance solution for your school.Thanks to our new JumpStartTM feature, there is no waiting for files to upload to the Cloud. Just open the Chromebook and students can instantly work with their locally stored media files.
