MediaCore, the cloud-based video education platform, is helping schools, colleges and universities to add high quality video to the Moodle, Blackboard and Canvas Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) with its latest plug-ins. Visit MediaCore at stand F83 to see presentations from James Cross, Apple Distinguished Educator, on using video in the classroom on smart phones and tablets as well as practical demonstrations from the media production team on how to create brilliant educational video resources.
MediaCore’s plug-ins make it quicker and easier for schools, colleges and universities to embed video and other media into their posts and pages from their institution’s MediaCore library. This means restrictions that can be typical in many VLEs such as file size, storage and file types are no longer a problem. In addition, users can choose who views the video with MediaCore’s flexible permission system.
MediaCore’s plug-ins are available for existing MediaCore users or new users can sign up for a FREE educator account and access today.
MediaCore is also showcasing its new Document Viewer which allows teachers and lecturers to add Microsoft Office documents, PDFs and photos to their MediaCore library. This means students can now access anything whether it’s a reading list, an image resource sheet, or a full assignment or simply a video.
Available to try out on the MediaCore stand will be the latest version of MediaCore’s Capture app. Redesigned for iOS7, it lets users record and share HD video on the go from an iPad or iPhone as well as making it easy to capture and upload images.
Nathan Cobb, e-Learning Manager at East Riding College commented on the new plug-ins and Capture app, “The latest plug-in to Moodle is very good. I can’t speak highly enough of it. It focuses on the practical aspects of getting the video into Moodle easily. Using the iPad app, staff can create videos on their iPads or iPhones and upload them directly to the platform.”
Stuart Bowness, CEO of MediaCore, said: “MediaCore’s new plug-ins make it easier for schools and colleges to upload, organise and share video, audio, documents and images. We have had some great feedback from existing users and a surge of new MediaCore users across the globe.”
