A great media library starts with great content, which is why we've always focused on making it as simple as possible to add media to your MediaCore library. Today we’re making this even easier with the release of a completely re-designed Media Uploader, which also adds support for closed captioning.
'Lecture Capture' may bring to mind classroom capture solutions that are complicated to set up and maintain. Thankfully, lecture capture has become much easier over recent years; great software and hardware solutions available today make capturing classroom content easier than ever before.
MediaCore is pleased to announce that we have joined forces with Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, to simplify and expand the use of video in online courses.
Video is becoming an increasingly important part of the online learning landscape – and many institutions are now looking to use online video as part of flipped and blended approaches to learning. Through this partnership, Pearson’s customers will be able to provide a world-class video experience for their students, across any device.
As the world’s leading education company, Pearson is reaching and meeting the needs of hundreds of institutions – and we’re thrilled to be working with them to help bring MediaCore to their customers. This partnership is a real vote of confidence in MediaCore’s platform and team, and we're excited to be supporting Pearson’s commitment to improving learner outcomes.
Pearson's Director of Technology Partnerships, Erica Tuohy, said “MediaCore’s platform makes the use of video easier for both instructors and students alike, and will only help make the student learning experiences more engaging and accessible. MediaCore’s ability to automatically convert videos so they can be viewed on any device will help empower teaching staff to use video to enrich the online course experience”.
We'll be launching the partnership at Pearson's annual CITE conference in Dallas, Texas from 1st - 3rd April.
Established in 1791, the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) is the UK’s longest-standing veterinary college, with a proud heritage of innovation in science, clinical practice and education.
Today, the RVC uses MediaCore to take teaching and learning beyond the classroom. A rich mobile library of digital content helps train surgeons and educate young vets – both in the classroom and out in the field.
