banner-720x90 EDUCAUSE 17: Collaj Is More Than Video CaptureWe Spoke With Collaaj About Video Capture, What They Do and Where They’re Going


Collaaj is a video capture platform and more. It’s simple to use and feature loaded making it easy to capture lecture video, conference video, personal video and much more. They’ve got some exciting things coming soon, like streaming.

Although you may not be familiar with the name Collaj there’s a good chance you’ve used their capture tool. Collaaj has been providing the lecture capture tool found in popular higher ed video products like Kaltura.

Now the company is broadening it’s horizons with a complete video platform for higher education. We liken it to how Samsung screens can be found on iPhones and other popular smartphones while they still have a product of their own.

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 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.
