Can I assign GIFs and Podcasts in WeVideo Classroom?

WeVideo Support -

Yes, educators can now assign GIFs and Podcasts in WeVideo Classroom! 


 Previously, GIFs could not be made in the Classroom instance. This release opens up a whole new video type to users in this space. Similarly, Podcasts could be created in Classroom, but only as a Project. Now, this functionality is also in Assignments, widening the options for content in our education-focused space. 


Please note, Podcasts can only be created in-product versus from an MP4 upload ( stay tuned for more updates shortly!).
