What is WeVideo?

WeVideo is a cloud-based video editing platform, which allows users to upload video from their phones or computers, edit it on the web from a desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone, and (if desired) to publish this content to the web.  It can be accessed by students, faculty, and staff at Miami, who can "check out" WeVideo accounts for up to one semester at a time, using their Miami userid.

WeVideo provides a way for instructors to ensure that all of the students in their classes have access to a shared video editing platform, and enables students to work together on shared projects, without struggling with incompatible software or file formats.

At the end of the semester, your WeVideo account will be downgraded to a free WeVideo account, which has more limited capabilities. However, the video materials stored in your account will remain. However, if you do not use your free WeVideo account for two months, you will receive an email warning you that your account has become inactive. One week after you receive this email, if you do not log into WeVideo again, your videos and all your WeVideo data will be deleted.
