Other updates to look out for include:

  • Common groups—Need a group where every member can view and share videos? Administrators can now create common groups to do just that! Share best practices and content libraries between colleagues, teams and departments school- or organization-wide.
  • Administrators can now view videos—By default, videos are hidden from Swivl Cloud administrators. However, if you’re a principal or department head you might need to watch other educators’ videos for reasons such as classroom observation or professional development. With our latest Swivl Cloud update, now you can.
