Concision. It forces/allows for brevity.
Engagement. Students are already using it for fun, so it can be fun to use it in an educational setting.
Embeddability. You can embed Vines into blog posts.
Filtration. It’s blocked (for students) at most schools (including mine) because it’s rated 17+.
Openness. Because it’s open to whoever wants to use it, there is a lot of adult content.
