Browser-Based Video Editor Now Free for Education

Kapwing is now offering free subscriptions for students and educators to its browser-based video editing software, which works on all platforms, including Chromebooks.

Kapwing for Education is a free version of the premium video editing tool. K–12 and higher education institutions are eligible for free licenses. Bulk licenses are also free for education.

"Serving students and teachers has been a north star of my work at Kapwing. Prior to joining the team, I worked as an English teacher for two years at a high school just outside of Madrid in Spain, where I learned firsthand how powerful digital learning tools are for teachers and students. I'm excited to see how the education community harnesses the power of video creation for learning with Kapwing!"

Kapwing launched its web offering in 2019, and, according to the company, now sees more than 1,200 students per day signing up for its service. The software allows students and educators to "record presentations, complete group video projects, make collages, design worksheets, clip YouTube videos, and create all types of multimedia projects. Kapwing allows creators to edit videos together in real time and offers various AI-powered tools that make editing simpler, such as an automatic subtitling tool. To help teachers get started, Kapwing has a library of education resources and templates and a popular YouTube channel."
