Take a look around a college campus and you’ll find that the technical prowess of college professors and instructors varies about as much as the student body. There are baby boomer professors and millennial professors who are just getting their feet wet. Some professors could edit down a feature length film in Final Cut while others still own VCR’s that blink 12:00. But they all want to use technology to help teach their lessons to today’s modern student.
That means that video software and technology designed for the college classroom needs to have a robust feature set and at the same time be easy to use. That’s what you get with edtech startup Collaaj.
Aditya Kadambi and the team behind Collaaj know how cumbersome traditional video platforms on college campuses can be. Something as easy as lecture capture often requires special software, bulky hardware and somebody who knows how to operate it all. They wanted to create a solution for enterprise and the college classroom that’s as easy as shooting a video on your iPhone and uploading it to YouTube.
Collaaj does just that.
Collaaj makes it easy to do lecture captures. It’s also easy to use for teacher and student created video content. Collaaj videos can include screen captures, presentations, cameras, voice and annotations. They deliver the features you would find in expensive and complicated video software and have simplified it to make creating content fun and fast.
With Collaaj faculty and students can create videos using any device. Then, it can be published with the click of a button.
Collaaj also features a back end similar to YouTube that’s easy to operate with a familiar feel for students. Collaaj can even serve as your campuses own YouTube or video repository. The Collaaj backend can be grouped using individual class URL’s or channel url’s for faculty that teach more than one class. The platform is also designed to integrate with the most popular learning management systems (LMS).
