No matter what subject or concept we teach, collaboration is a crucial component of blended learning
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (PRWEB) October 29, 2020
WeVideo, a leading cloud-based video and content creation platform for business, education and everyday creators, today announced a new feature that allows multiple users to collaborate and edit the same video at the same time. Real-time collaboration is immediately available to all WeVideo for Schools accounts, including district, school and classroom plans, at no additional cost.
To activate real-time collaboration for users, admins simply need to log into their WeVideo for Schools accounts and turn on the feature, which is currently in beta testing.
WeVideo’s Chief Education Officer, Dr. Nathan Lang-Raad, said, “Real-time collaboration is a core part of every career field and subject discipline. The same holds true for the classroom. More than ever, learning should be part of a social context, as learners collectively rely on each other’s thinking to solve complex problems and create. No matter what subject or concept we teach, collaboration is a crucial component of blended learning.”
He added, “When students engage in real-time collaboration, they experience the following (both in-person or at home):
- Higher ownership and investment in the project
- Increased efficiency and productivity, which means they can channel cognitive energy into creative processes
- An increase in their individual and collective efficacy
- More control over the time, place, path, or pace of learning.
- The ability to collectively work together in a blended/remote context
- Opportunities to build necessary skills of teamwork and cooperative learning as a part of project based learning.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the ways educators teach and students learn. While some students have returned to schools for in-person learning, others are still fully remote and some are doing blended learning, a combination of in-person and remote learning.
No matter what learning looks like or where it takes place, WeVideo empowers all students and educators to create, engage and collaborate through easy video creation.
With WeVideo, students can create morning announcements, podcasts, video reports, green screen projects and more. Educators can create instructional videos, Morning Meeting, training videos and more. Real-time collaboration is the latest WeVideo product release to meet the growing demand of innovative learning tools in a rapidly changing education landscape.
