ClickView has developed a unique digital media solution that allows schools to not only manage all their video, podcasts, still images and audio files in one central library, but deliver them to all users across their school network and also to student’s homes.
Evan Clark, developed the digital video delivery software specifically for schools: “Streaming is a great solution when you’re one user on a home computer, but in schools, where hundreds of users may want to access digital video at any time, the resulting pressure on the network is immense. ClickView’s patented predictive file transfer technology effectively lifts the pressure from the school network, and means that hundreds of students can access digital video at the same time.” This has opened up the chance for pupils to watch and work independently in IT suites, and letting every teacher access the school’s digital media resources anywhere that there is a computer.
The technology also comes with over 800 educational programmes specifically made for schools, but with the use of a capture card, you can also quickly and easily import VHS and DVD recordings into the system – simplifying and upgrading the current use of video in the classroom. As part of the anytime, anywhere learning agenda, digital video can also be seamlessly linked to any VLE or web based application. And to ensure we embed the use of digital media in the classroom, regular professional development sessions are provided free for teachers, by teachers, with experience of creative and effective use of digital media.
