FAQs

Q: Who can purchase?
A: Education institutions that are members of the Vermont Vita-Learn IGNITE Consortium.

Q: What if I am renewing an existing subscription?
A: Please follow the same purchasing process outlined above. You are not required to maintain the same number of seats as last year. As a renewing customer, you get access for the entire consortium term: 9/1/20-8/31/21.

Q: Can I add seats midway through the consortium?
A: Yes. The minimum number of seats you can add each time is 20. The price per seat is $3.50. Since the price is already discounted, no pro-rations or additional discounts are available for adding seats midway through the term.

Q: What if we are joining during the year?  Are we invoiced for a partial year?  
A: The opt-in period is between May 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020. You can join at any point during that period. In all cases, your subscription will extend until August 31, 2021, and you will be invoiced for the full amount. As such, the earlier you join the longer you will have WeVideo access. The negotiated consortium rate is extremely discounted, necessitating that all renewals be due on the same date for the entire state.

Q: What if we want to join after December 31, 2020?
A: The consortium opt-in period for the 2020-2021 term will be closed effective on Jan. 1, 2021. At that stage, you will have a choice: purchase seats at the full, non-discounted rate or wait for the following year's opt-in period to open in May. (WeVideo offers no guarantee that the VT consortium will be extended for another term past Aug. 31, 2021.)

Q: How will we keep track of how many total licenses purchased under this agreement?
A: WeVideo will keep track of this and share a master spreadsheet with IGNITE Vita-Learn for all committed licenses.

Q: What should we do if we already have licenses and want to become part of the consortium?  Will our current licenses count toward the total?
A: If you are extending your licenses or buying new licenses We Video will issue you a credit for the leftover term of your licenses so that you can immediately get the new consortium level pricing. Schools who already have WeVideo licenses (outside of the consortium) will receive credit for the unused term of their current agreement, and be billed at the new discounted consortium pricing under the terms of this agreement. Please contact WeVideo for more information.
