Our video platform functionality like clip-making, customizable playback speeds, transcript/platform language translations and more makes this an ideal resource for academic institutions. And now Academic Video Online has a new learning tool, video interaction functionality.

For Libraries:
Video interaction functionality offers opportunities for increased usage and ROI and will enhance collaboration with faculty to connect the positive influence library resources have on learning outcomes.

For Faculty: 
It promotes student engagement through assessment tools offering insight into student comprehension of concepts and provides collaboration activities allowing students to discuss topics and expand understanding of lessons. Faculty will have access to real-time analytics to see student responses and adapt teaching, facilitating improved learning outcomes.

  • Enables faculty to embed pedagogical tools throughout streaming videos, including discussion prompts, multiple choice and free form questions, polling, and more. 
  • Can be originally created by faculty or edited from other interactions already available.
  • Allows results to be reported in the gradebook.
