Integrate WeVideo Interactivity into your Learner Management System (LMS)

WeVideo Interactivity can be integrated into Canvas and Schoology as an LTI 1.3 tool. This will allow teachers to assign the interactive videos to the LMS as an assignment, and learners can complete the assignment directly in the LMS without switching to a separate website. Furthermore, after the learners complete the interactive video, their grades will automatically pass back to the LMS grade book so the teachers can monitor learners' progress both from the WeVideo site and the LMS. Please see more information in the articles below.
