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. WeVideo can be accessed by instructors, who can request that students in one or more courses be provisioned with WeVideo accounts. It can also be accessed individually 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 a shared project, without struggling with incompatible software or file formats.

To request that WeVideo accounts be set up for you and for the students enrolled in a class you teach, clink on the link below:
Once your WeVideo account is set-up and active, you can log in at WeVideo.com, using your Miami userid and password. We recommend that you log in by clicking the "Log in with Office 365" option.
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.
WeVideo allows you to directly download video, or to publish video to the Vimeo platform. You can also downloaded your finished videos (in mp4 format), and then upload them yourself to the video-sharing website of your choice.
WeVideo works with video in HD (1080p) format, and permits multi-track timeline editing of video and audio. It includes a wide variety of filters and effects (such as slow-motion), transitions, text effects, and a library of license-free music. It also permits "green-screen" techniques for compositing videos and backgrounds. For a more detailed description of WeVideo's features, see the links to WeVideo documentation, below.
While the ability to edit a video can be given to any number of group members, only one person can be actively editing a video at any particular moment.
WeVideo provides official documentation, and also provides video tutorials in their WeVideo Academy
WeVideo has a large user base, and there are many user-made WeVideo tutorials on YouTube and elsewhere online. Here are a couple of examples:
