(PRWeb UK) March 1, 2011
With the help of WebCam Laboratory and a simple webcam, students and teachers are able to: measure the width of a Moon crater, the distance of a star or the length of a single-celled specie. You can also observe the periodical movements of a homemade pendulum or the playground swing. Only a student’s imagination and curiosity to find out more can set limits for a series of fascinating experiments without the need for expensive and delicate equipment.
WebCam Laboratory is six software packages in one.

- Time Lapse Cam: to analyse the dynamics of slow processes e.g. sun set, plant movement or even the hustle and bustle of the school corridors
- Kinematics: to measure movement of objects using classical mechanics e.g. a pendulum
- Microscope: to measure microscopic objects achieving 250 x magnification, or large objects at a distance e.g. the moon
- Motion Cam: to capture those hard to catch events e.g. a bird feeding or a spider catching a fly
- Universal Logger: to perform data logging by recording measurements using various types of analogue, digital or radial dial measuring instruments that normally could not be connected to a computer by simply reading the data using a webcam e.g. mercury thermometer, the school weather station, etc.
- Pathfinder: monitors and records the density of movement within a defined area e.g. ant colony, a city street.
Stephen Copeland, Chief Operating Officer of Bli Education had to say about this new exclusive agreement:
“WebCam Laboratory is an innovative software tool with clear relevance to key areas of the science curriculum. The combination of being innovative, intuitive and possessing strong curriculum relevance gives it a strong market opportunity within the UK education sector. This type of tool will fit perfectly within BLi Educations ICT tools division, TAG Learning, as well as it’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) specialist, Economatics Education. We are delighted that Webcam Laboratory is joining our product portfolio.”
“We strongly believe that WebCam Laboratory certainly fits well into the current trend of project based inquiry science and changes the way science is being taught by making it a hands on, fun experience and allowing students to do the same experiments at home as they have only been able to do in class. Being able to do this eliminates classroom pressure and students can explore natural science phenomena at their own pace. Using WebCam Laboratory lets puplis learn while having fun, not even knowing that they are learning. We are delighted to appoint Bli Education as our exclusive partner for the UK and we are convinced that they will provide the support and professional effort our product and the UK teachers and pupils deserve.” said Zsolt Vaszary, managing partner of WebCam Laboratory, Intellisense Corporation Ltd.
