One of the many apps that can connect to Google Drive is WeVideo.

Here is some advice from Mrs. Vergel:

WeVideo feedback notes, not necessarily in order of importance.


  1. Initially, we had some issues with opening the app.

  2. WeVideo files are saved on an individual’s drive (a folder is created for this by the app).  It is possible to share the work in progress with the teacher.  Teacher can edit the video when shared, so best to leave it alone if you are the teacher.

  3. When the shared work in progress is uploaded and published, it is not automatically shared with the original people. It has to be shared with the original people.

  4. Photos that have no permission to be uploaded from the web will not be there.  Make sure to use Creative Commons material or open/free material.

  5. Sometimes the photos seem to get lost in cyberspace and all the work seems to be gone.  Waiting and refreshing usually works.

  6. Setting the work to Timeline (Advanced) allows the user to add transitions, audio and music to the presentation, and allows user to fix the timing of the presentation.

  7. Setting a time limit for the video is a good idea for presentations. (5 min max in our case)

  8. Make sure the music is not louder than the speaker’s voice. This can be adjusted in the Advanced Timeline setting.

  9. Students can work on WeVideo at home.

  10. There were issues of recording audio(voice) which could not be resolved at home.
