A WeVideo Teacher account allows you and your students to collaborate in real time and create shared projects all in one place. The Media Studio can set up you and your students accounts through our educational license. This will ensure that you have access to features like the royalty-free media library, and creativity tools like green screen, motion titles and education-friendly templates. Through our license, you are not limited to just video, but can also create GIFs, podcasts and screen recordings.
To get set up with a WeVideo teacher account, please contact us by emailing the library.
Follow the steps below to set up a project for your class in WeVideo.
By putting your students into groups, students can collaborate and access shared media, and you can have visibility into all your students’ projects.
On your groups page, you will be able to view all your existing groups.
In your group, you will now be able to view all the group members, projects and exports. You will also be able to add more members to the group if you need to.
Note: There are no limits to the amount of groups you can create! Therefore if you want to split your class into groups of 5, you can do so by creating multiple groups.
If you would like your students to use certain videos, images or sounds, you can upload and share your media so that they all have access to the same content. You can upload and share media with project groups at any point.
Your media is now uploaded, which means you can share it with existing projects, or any new projects you make.
Setting up a project is similar to setting up a folder for different video edits, with the additional ability to control how group members can work with one another within these projects.
There are three types of projects:
To create a project:
You and the students you added will now be able to view your new project in your projects tab. You can always add more members, or share a link to the project, or change your project settings.
As the creator, you will be able to view the edits in process, the exported videos, upload or view project media for the project members to use, add links to external resources, and view the project members.
Now students in your project will be able to start creating videos within the projects screen.
You can also add media to your project in the project page.
Students can start creating and editing their videos within the project you created. This gives students access to the media you uploaded, and it allows you the ability to view their progress.
For students to start a video within a project:
The Gallery is a great tool for organizing and showcasing your group’s exports to members of your organization. Exports can be added directly to the Main Gallery or they can be organized into Playlists.
You can create a gallery or add a video to a gallery by first locating the video you would like to add. Videos must be exported in order to add them to a gallery. There are different ways for you to locate your exported videos.
If the video belongs to a group
If your video belongs to a certain project, you can locate the export on the projects page as well.
Finally, you can add an exported video to a gallery by opening the export itself.
When you select “Add to Gallery” in any of the ways described above, you will be presented with a pop up window that allows you to add your video to the main organization, an existing playlist, or a new playlist.
From your dashboard/home page, select “View Gallery” in the bottom left-hand corner of your screen.
You can also locate your gallery by selecting “Exports” from your menu on the left hand side of your dashboard, then clicking “Gallery”. You will then see all of the existing playlists within your organization, including the one you made.
When you open your playlist, you will be able to see the videos you have added, or add more videos by clicking the “+” icon in the top left-hand corner of your screen.
