(PRWEB UK) 13 April 2013
ClickView, the UK’s leading provider of digital video solutions, BRW Magazine’s Most Innovative Company in Australia and Microsoft’s Education Partner of the Year 2012, this week announced its award-winning recording device, ClickView 24-7 is now available as a cloud-based solution.
ClickView 24-7 Cloud offers schools and educational institutions 14 days of TV programmes continuously and automatically recorded from 16 free-to-air digital channels including BBC1, BBC4, ITV1, Channel 4, More4, Film4 and many more.
The automatic recording means teachers don’t miss any TV programmes relevant to their curriculum and constantly have new and up-to-date video content to use for their lessons.
For existing customers who already have the ClickView 24-7 hardware, using 24-7 Cloud in conjunction with the 24-7 hardware product will provide access to additional and regional channels that are not yet available on 24-7 Cloud, enabling educators to record from a total of 24 Freeview TV channels.
With the ClickView 24-7 Cloud, teachers across the UK have access to thousands of educational and topical TV programmes at any time that can be used to enrich lessons for students, making the learning process more interesting and engaging.
Teachers using ClickView 24-7 Cloud are provided with a Personal WorkSpace – a web-application where they can edit and tailor TV programmes using ClickView Cloud Video Editor. This function allows teachers to ensure videos are appropriate for their students’ educational level and age. They can also remove adverts and capture specific parts of different TV programmes that are relevant to the subject they’re teaching, making sure students get access to materials that are safe and beneficial to the learning process.
ClickView 24-7 Cloud comes with 500GB of ClickView Online Cloud storage space that schools/colleges can use to store large numbers of educational video content. This allows users to create an extensive video library featuring content from the UK’s leading broadcast channels.
Any digital videos stored on the ClickView Online Cloud service can be used and shared with next generations of students and teachers.
Harvey Sanchez, CEO of ClickView said, “The amount and quality of TV programmes available today is outstanding, which is why it is so important for educators to have ‘always-on’ access to them, so they are equipped with the most relevant and up-to-date video content to teach our next generations. Our new ClickView 24-7 Cloud allows teachers to access recorded educational TV programmes from a wide range they can use to enrich lessons to help students understand complex concepts more easily.
“Students’ learning is enhanced by the inclusion of video in lessons, because video aids in comprehension. This means that as more teachers incorporate a greater proportion of video content into their lessons, students will find it easier to learn and retain new information, which will ultimately contribute to raising the standards of education.”
ClickView is offering a free trial for the 24-7 Cloud. There is also a 10 percent discount off the cost of the first year’s subscription if purchased before 21st June 2013.
