Okay for those who have used both which would you rather use WeVideo or
Screencastify?

thanks Jessica



I was getting ready to send this out from Vita-Learn

Each of the  Partners that Vita-Learn has a digital consortium agreement
has offers on the table to help throughout the school year and that
includes WEVIDEO

Anybody who has current WEVIDEO EDU can add more seats for free, and anyone
who does not currently have it yet, can get it for 90 days / rest of school
year



I have information about each of our partners who are in a consortium
agreement with us that I updated last night on this page



http://vita-learn.org/ignite-learning/



If you click the first link on that page you will get all the details for
our current partners (WeVideo, Book Creator, VoiceThread, Newsela)  -

(but to save you a click,  here is the Table of Contents for that document
-  I plan to send something to the School IT list serv about this today,
but I wanted to respond quickly here regarding WeVideo as a screen casting
option )



Vita-Learn Digital Consortium Partners offers to support Vermont Schools
with learning continuity plans during current school closures.

Another option to think about- if your school already has paid for WeVideo,
you can screen cast with that.

Scott,



The free version is good. The paid option extends the maximum duration of
your recordings, and gives you more editing tools, but the free version is
sufficient. Offers up to 5 minutes, on-screen notation tools, etc. I
honestly would not pay for it right now, given that you can always break a
presentation into several videos. Just my two-cents though.

Hello,

Just wondering people's thoughts on Screencastify or maybe another tool
that teachers can use that have the same features.  Teachers are looking at
wanting to purchase licenses but at $29 a pop for a year it seems like it
could get a little expensive.
