WeVideo educators can now add interactive questions to any video — unlocking higher engagement and better retention, plus real-time learner data. (Pro tip: make life WAY easier with auto-grading, too!)

(Note: This feature is available at an additional cost. Account admin from interested schools/districts should contact us directly.)

Accessibility for the win!

January 2023

Educators, BIG update! Well...big in terms of functionality, little in terms of learning curve. Now you can automatically generate subtitles (and .vtt subtitle files) for any video in the Projects tab. More accessible video content = deeper learning for all.

Easily remove and replace video backgrounds in our iOS app with just a few taps. Talk about an A+ feature for student assignments. PLUS, some extra credit for ya — we've added the power of "copy to web" to the Classroom space. Start projects in the app (and, y'know, use the background remover), then finish them in the Classroom editor!
