Exciting news: in the past months we have been hard at work building a new editor for annotating video content with rich media. The new editor allows users to add notes and links to existing video content, and this way turn video into a digital discovery platform.
An early access to ThingLink for Video is announced at ISTE, one of the largest international conferences for educational technology. We at ThingLink believe that interactive images and video will become the 21st century textbook, and teachers are driving this change by being fast adopters of, not only new technology, but also a new way of thinking. As the use of video in education grows, ThingLink is empowering teachers and students to easily create interactive video content and facilitate in-video conversations.
The ability to creatively combine web content with interactive images and video opens up new possibilities for teaching and learning. With ThingLink for Video, teachers and students can enrich educational videos with facts, detailed articles, additional content and questions. They can also search and share videos created by their colleagues, and this way access a wider network of interactive video content creators.
ThingLink for Video is currently available via invitation only. Educators can request a free early access starting from today.
If you are visiting ISTE this year, please come to meet us at ThingLink's booth no 2869 and share the news with your colleagues!
