For the rest of the school year, our district will be piloting an online video editor called WeVideo. WeVideo comes with many of the same tools as Windows MovieMaker but with more features and capabilities. WeVideo is completely web-based and allows users to collaboratively work on a video project.
Perhaps one of the most exciting features is the ability to have learners green screening using their Chromebooks right in the classroom using WeVideo’s “Color Keying” feature.
Make sure you check out the videos below to learn more about WeVideo and what it has to offer.

How to green/blue screen in your classroom with WeVideo:
- To help you get started, WeVideo has their latest Getting Started Guide to WeVideo for Education guide available to us. Also, the WeVideo Education Resource Hub has many great ideas for projects and lesson plans.
We are very interested in teacher and student feedback of the program. If the feedback of the pilot is positive, there is a good possibility of purchasing a subscription to the program for our district for the next school year and beyond.
If you are interested in setting up a teacher and/or student accounts for your classroom, please contact Tim Leister at the secondary campus or Adam Geiman at the Elementary schools. Either of us can quickly create a project group for your class and send you a custom join link to be sent to all of your students to set up their accounts.
