WeLearnedIt to Give Away School-wide Licenses

Last fall Adam Bellow and the eduClipper team released a new digital portfolio creation platform called WeLearnedIt. Through the WeLearnedIt iPad app you and your students can create digital portfolios that contain files from Google Drive, Dropbox, links from the web, images and videos captured with your iPad, and whiteboard videos created within the WeLearnedIt app.

Individual teachers and students have always been able to use WeLearnedIt for free. The school-wide license for WeLearnedIt was not free. The school-wide implementation of WeLearnedIt allows teachers and administrators to share assessment data. Today, Adam Bellow announced that the school-wide license will be free from now through June 2016 to any school school whose district has taken the Future Ready Pledge.


Applications for Education
The best aspects of WeLearnedIt are found in the feedback and sharing tools. Teachers can assign grades to elements of students’ digital portfolios. Grading is not limited to assigning scores. Teachers can give written feedback on each submission. Rubrics for assignments are available through the app too.
