Kapwing is a really good video editor
It has all the basic effects and utilities a good video editor has. I used it for my project for school and I became familiar with its features in just a matter of minutes.

Kapwing is an incredible tool for music education
I am able to capture student performances and share them in a current and relative way. The growth I have seen in peer and self-assessment opportunities and family engagement has made it my go-to online resource. My students are so proud to see the final videos, and best of all, it is easy to use!

The students love the videos
As an English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Kapwing is a powerful tool
Kapwing has a low-learning curve so producing content can be done in little time. Whether using videos face-to-face or online, a key bonus includes enriching blended learning environments.

Bling Your Videos With Kapwing!
I've used Kapwing to create GIFs and social media posts to promote my library program. It's one of those Swiss Army knife tools that can do so many things including trimming and resizing. Especially useful is the caption feature which I use to support my special education students and English language learners.

Kapwing: A Simple, Online Editor for Videos, Images, and GIFs
Kapwing is a freemium online video, image, and GIF editor that is incredibly simple to use.  It’s an excellent tool for both teachers and students who are looking to trim videos, add subtitles, create memes, or any other type of simple video production activity.

Kapwing Captioning
While videos are powerful tools you can use with your students, it is important that all students have access to the content. Providing quality captions is a way to ensure this. Any video you create with the kapwing tool, you can upload to any online platform or learning management system.

Promote Literacy with Kapwing
The following are ways that teachers and students are already using Kapwing to promote literacy: Add English subtitles to a native language film clip  (or vice versa) to help English language learners and ESL students. Loop a video of how a word is pronounced so that students can hear and see the sound spoken at the same time (and add a caption so they can see how it is spelled). Create visual flashcards of new vocabulary words.
