One thing we know for sure is that the best edtech tools are ones that are easy-to-use, accessible, and blend seamlessly with the classroom environment. That is why we are so excited to announce that WeVideo now integrates directly with two of the most popular Learning Management Systems, Schoology and Canvas. This valuable enhancement is free to WeVideo for School license holders!
If your school uses, or is considering, Schoology or Canvas, you’ll notice several immediate benefits:
- Once a student or teacher is in the LMS system, there are no extra logins to get into WeVideo. Fewer steps and no extra passwords to remember makes it that much easier and convenient to have video creation always within reach.
- WeVideo works with all the great features of your LMS including assignments, messaging, project submissions, and grading.
Gretta Rogne, MEd., secondary instructional technology specialist at New Caney ISD, Texas, was among the first to put our LMS integration to the test. Her schools use Canvas and she had this to say, “The ability to connect WeVideo directly into our Canvas environment has improved ease of access. Our teachers and students appreciate having direct access without having to redirect to another site, with an additional login. In our experience, the more programs we add to our Canvas environment, like WeVideo, the more usage we see in the program.”
This is an important step for WeVideo and its commitments to digital learning and putting video creation in reach of every student and teacher. We’ve demonstrated this by making sure our apps work with virtually every device used in schools today. It’s why we vigorously seek out partnerships to ensure that WeVideo works alongside key technology platforms such as Google Classroom. Adding support for LMS systems helps to further eliminate barriers in the classroom.
You can get more information and request WeVideo integration to your Canvas or Schoology system by contacting the WeVideo for Schools support team. Instructions for setting up your Schoology or Canvas integration with WeVideo can be accessed here. For additional details about the LMS integrations, see our recent press release.
