WeVideo is an online video creation program with similar features of iMovie.  As Chromebooks, Macs, iPads and PC's are used throughout a course, it can be difficult to find programs that work on all of these devices.  WeVideo solves that!  As an online program,  WeVideo works on Chromebooks, Macs, and PCs!  Students and teachers can log in using their CSDDocs Google account.  If you take video on the iPad, use the WeVideo Uploader app to upload the video to the website

  • is fun!
  • engages and excites students.
  • helps learning retention.
  • allows creative expression.
  • requires higher level thinking.
  • improves technology skills.
  • develops problem-solving skills.
