Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
Collaaj, a Silicon Valley-based enterprise video company, has launched an “Education” version of its popular video platform. Although the platform has always been available and useful to users in the education field, the new version will specifically cater to the needs of educators and enhance flipped learning in higher education as well as K-12 classrooms.
Lecture concepts, problem solving and frequently-asked-questions (FAQs) are an everyday thing in schools and universities. Today, these documents are still primarily text-based. Collaaj’s new Education version enriches these text documents with engaging elearning videos. With Collaaj, teachers can now easily create and share eLearning video tutorials, online lecture capture, video FAQs and more.
Collaaj apps can be used on any PC, Mac or iPad to create videos with ease, including camera, voice, drawings and screen capture. These videos can easily be edited with a few button clicks and published to the Collaaj server, on-premise or on the cloud. The videos can then be shared with students simply using secure URLs (like this: https://collaaj.com/9P6vrZ7), or even embedded into learning management systems (LMS) using its instant embed code.
Since its launch last year, Collaaj has seen huge interest in its platform from the education sector. “At the EduCause annual conference in Anaheim last October, we had the chance to discuss our platform with many interested university IT leaders and faculty,” says Kiran Kamity, Founder and CEO of Collaaj. “It was clear that the product needed to be tailored a bit more to suit the education market. We are very pleased to now be releasing the 'Education' version, and already have several customers that have signed up.”
Collaaj also provides custom branded channels (e.g., http://collaaj.com/videos), where videos related to various topics can be organized. Students can watch these videos from their browser on any computer, smart phone or tablet.
“There are lecture capture tools available today,” Kamity says. “However, Collaaj takes it to the next generation with its iPad app for content capture and editing. It also ties in a YouTube-like backend for these videos to be organized, stored and streamed. It's an all-in-one experience, at a much lower price point than other competing products.”
Collaaj, unlike traditional lecture capture tools that are intended for teacher-created content, also enables student-generated content. Because it is so easy to use and has a free version, students can quickly walk through documents, presentations and whiteboards, along with annotations, voice and camera. The video is instantly ready in H.264, can be shared with a simple URL or embedded into LMS systems or blogs with instant embed code.
“Learning is a lot more enjoyable and a lot more powerful when students can watch these videos anytime,” Kamity says. “With Collaaj, you can say goodbye to boring documents and embrace next-generation technology to enrich your everyday communication with your students.”
