Clifton, NJ, Oct. 2, 2019 - WeVideo, the leading provider of video and podcast creation solutions for education, today announced a partnership with ClassLink to include WeVideo in ClassLink’s single sign-on (SSO) and rostering solution. ClassLink ends the painful student login process, saving time and cutting confusion with single sign-on to a library of 6,000+ connectors.

This partnership establishes OneClick access to WeVideo from ClassLink’s LaunchPad, allowing schools and teachers to easily discover and access the WeVideo platform. Not only does this SSO integration save time, but WeVideo users can now access the creative app through the same platform where students and teachers gain instant access to all of their school’s digital resources and tools.

The rostering integration further simplifies access by effortlessly managing WeVideo users, taking the onus off teachers to manually add and remove student users. With streamlined management and access to WeVideo, teachers can spend more time in the classroom focusing on student-produced documentaries, newscasts, podcasts, green screen projects, book trailer videos and more. The WeVideo for Schools cloud-based app is available immediately on ClassLink LaunchPad and is free for current WeVideo for Schools subscribers.

WeVideo’s Chief Education Officer and author, Dr. Nathan Lang-Raad, believes ClassLink and WeVideo are natural partners, as both seek to simplify access to creative solutions for teachers and students using collaborative, cloud-based platforms.

“Students are their most creative selves when they don’t have to expend cognitive energy on things that don’t contribute to the actual learning experience. We want to give students ease of access so they can focus on creating, thinking and having fun while learning.”
— Dr. Nathan Lang-Raad, WeVideo’s Chief Education Officer

ClassLink recently won three Tech & Learning Best of Show awards at this year’s ISTE show, including an award for ClassLink LaunchPad.

"We’re pleased to strengthen our integration with WeVideo and empower their users with OneClick access to their creative tool. Students and educators benefit from the opportunity to leverage technologies like WeVideo faster, easier and with greater security. This relationship signals our shared commitment to making that happen.”
— Patrick Devanney, Vice President of Interoperability Services at ClassLink
