When schools first began to close in response to coronavirus, we immediately began accelerating work on a solution for students to create and share videos in a safe, controlled environment. While we originally planned to only offer Submit to a small group of beta testers, we recognized the urgent need in distance learning times and invited thousands of educators to participate in the Beta program.
Over the last couple of months, we have absolutely loved working with you, our community of incredible Beta users, to understand how Submit could be improved to better serve the needs of students and educators. 💜
Thanks to your feedback we have released a number of improvements to Submit:
- 📱 Mobile compatibility for webcam assignments
- 🔒 Improved video and assignment privacy options
- 😊 More user-friendly UI
- ⏩ Reduced video submission wait times
Now it’s time to share Submit with the rest of the world! On August 17, 2020 the Submit Beta program will conclude as the full version of Submit will officially become Screencastify’s newest product. 🤩
How does the end of the beta affect me?
We’re going to introduce both a Free and an Unlimited version of Submit to all educators. The free version will be exactly the same as the Unlimited version except for one limitation: the free version will allow you to create one active assignment at a time to collect videos from your students.
For educators interested in upgrading to the Unlimited version of Submit:
- Individual educators can purchase Submit Unlimited for their classroom for $49 per person per year.
- School Districts can purchase Submit Unlimited for all students, teachers, and staff members for $750 per school per year.
- Individual schools can purchase Submit Unlimited for all students, teachers, and staff members for $1,000 per school per year.
Because we appreciate the invaluable feedback from students and educators who have tried Submit Beta for the past few months, all of the educators who took part in the Submit Beta program will have the opportunity to purchase an individual classroom license for Submit Unlimited for 40% off before September 1st ($29 per person for the first year).
