Online video creation platform, WeVideo, Inc. (opens in new tab), 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.
