WeVideo updates video creation software

Online video creation platform, WeVideo, Inc., today announced its new software updates. WeVideo is used by educators and students to capture, edit and distribute content for a variety of school activities, including classroom presentations, project reports and extracurricular documentaries (e.g., athletic events, performing arts, community affairs, etc.).

New features include:

  • Educators can now group individuals; view and comment on student work; and monitor the progress of video projects.
  • Each classroom license now allows collaboration for up to 50 people on unlimited projects.
  • Educators can now access and organize classroom video projects and media files on their WeVideo Hub (homepage).
  • School administrators can now centrally manage staff and student accounts.
  • More editing tools, including advanced cropping and scaling capabilities. Later this summer, WeVideo will introduce slow-mo/fast-mo techniques and green screen capabilities.

WeVideo has rolled out a simplified pricing model for educators: $149.00 per classroom (up to 50 users) for six-months (semester) or $249.00 per year (annual) when paid in advance. For schools that subscribe before August 1, 2013, WeVideo is offering a special promotion of $99.99 per classroom (up to 50 users) for the first six-month semester, or $199.99 for the first year.
