Description: Kapwing is an online video, GIF, and image editor designed to be simple, accessible, and collaborative. Teachers can edit video lessons, set up a multimedia workspace for projects in their classroom, and give their students creative assignments to do at home. For the next month, Kapwing is giving free Kapwing Pro licenses to any educator whose school is affected by the covid-19 crisis.

Kapwing is a collaborative online image and video editor with a cloud storage Workspace. It’s an excellent tool for teachers who are making video lessons to send to students for remote learning, for students working together on a group project, or a classroom looking for a digital space to share multimedia projects with each other.

We’re giving away Kapwing Pro to educators whose schools are affected by the CoVid-19 closures. Teachers can sign up here.

Lumen Open Education Resources / Courseware


Lumen courseware is designed to help at-risk students succeed in digital environments, and we want to make our learning tools and team readily available wherever we may be helpful. We’re taking the following steps to help institutions resolve problems and get students through this term successfully.

  1. Live classes may shift to Lumen Waymaker or OHM courseware at no cost for the remainder of the term. For faculty members seeking a well-designed digital alternative or supplement to their current textbook, Lumen courseware may be a good fit. Course set-up is simple, and faculty can be ready to teach the same day they make the change. We also provide free services to support a successful transition. Learn More. 
  2. To support professional development, we’re introducing a series of short videos about effective digital teaching and learning using Lumen courseware. We’ll begin sharing them later this week on Lumen’s blog.
  3. Lumen’s outstanding Support Team is available to assist with any needs. Reach out with support needs and general questions, including help for instructional designers, LMS administrators and others working with faculty to switch modalities using our courseware. Send a message to or schedule an Office Hours appointment for live virtual support.
  4. Lumen Community Slack can connect you with the Lumen Team, as well as faculty using Lumen courseware and other members of our community. Use this form to request an invitation to this collaboration tool.
