Over the last year WeVideo has become my go-to online video creation service. In May they added a Google Drive app that makes it easy to sign into WeVideo and save all of your projects in your Google Drive account. This week WeVideo rolled out a couple of nice enhancements to their Google Drive app that you should check out.
The first major enhancement to WeVideo for Google Drive is a new option to record video using your webcam. Your recording is directly imported into your files collection where you can then trim the start and end times and or split your imported recording into multiple segments. Splitting your uploaded webcam recording will allow you to add transitions and images between sections of your webcam recording.
The second enhancement of note made to WeVideo for Google Drive is improved audio control functions. WeVideo for Google Drive now lets you control your audio track’s volume with fine controls similar to those found in tools like iMovie. You can fade-in audio, fade-out audio, raise and lower audio volume to be background sound or featured sound at any point in your video.
Applications for Education
WeVideo for Google Drive can be a great online video editing tool for students who use Chromebooks or for any student who doesn’t have a video editing program installed on his or her computer. The thing that I like best is that students’ files are stored in the cloud so that they can work on their projects from any computer connected to the web.
As Anna Lynn Martino just mentioned on Twitter, WeVideo could be used to create video book trailers. Or read this post for five other video creation projects that you can do with your students this year.
