WeVideo is an excellent screen recording and video editing tool that can be used for a wide variety of educational purposes. Whether teaching remotely or in-person, WeVideo can help transform your instructional experience, boost collaboration, and create meaningful and engaging learning experiences. 

You can use WeVideo to capture your screen and create instructional screencasts. You have the choice to record your entire screen or select individual windows. WeVideo  enables you to record your screen and webcam simultaneously, an ideal option for creating webinars and tutorials. Once your recording is finished you can then use  WeVideo's built-in editor to edit your screencast. You can add transitions, effects, and edit your recording the way you want and with one click you can easily share your videos with students and across different learning management systems. 

WeVideo can be used to create various types of educational video materials including instructional videos, explainer videos, tutorials, webinars, and many more. For instance, you can create instructional videos where you "record yourself giving voiceover instructions while video of you completing a project is playing". Additionally, you can "screencast and share instructional and morning announcement videos with ease. With these videos you can empower students to create videos from the comfort of their own homes".

Another way to use WeVideo is by creating  presentations to use virtually with your students or in webinars and online conferences. "Record your presentation whether it be a powerpoint deck or going through a workflow on your computer screen. You can even record yourself through your webcam while you speak for a picture-in-picture experience".

WeVideo has a special section for education called WeVideo for Schools where you can access resources to help you make the best of WeVideo in your instruction. Watch the video below to learn more about WeVideo for Schools.
