Our goal is to help creators boost user engagement and increase ROI on training and information retention.

This empowers instructors and other creators to engage with audiences, assess knowledge in-take and repurpose their video content in a variety of ways. The acquisition of PlayPosit expands WeVideo’s potential customer base exponentially and creates an end-to-end video creation and communications platform with interactive engagement and measurement capabilities that result in higher-value learning, greater knowledge absorption, and evidence-based training and assessment.
