There are a lot of video tools for the classroom. It seems that for every function of video in the classroom there’s a different tool. This could be flipped classroom, lecture or teacher capture, student response or whatever other reason you would want to use video in the classroom, there’s a separate tool for each.
That means for every reason a teacher wants to use video in the classroom they need to learn a new platform. We already know that nearly 80% of teachers already feel inadequately trained in classroom technology.
One edtech startup called HippoVideo is looking to change all that.
For starters the Delaware based startup believes that you shouldn’t have to turn to five different video platforms during your school day.
Their web based video platform is easily accessible via HippoVideo.io or a one click installed, Chrome extension. The platform has been designed for the ground up to easily integrate with Google Classroom all around.
Their rapid video creation platform is easy to learn, allowing students to create at their own pace. They’ve also optimized their editing tools for educational purposes and included annotation tools along with the ability to merge, crop, cut, trim and even add emojis. Also, since the platform is web based you don’t need to worry about downloading the latest version to get new features or constantly pay upgrade fees.
HippoVideo is the perfect, one platform video tool for:
- Flipped classroom
- Student response
- Lecture/teacher capture
- Interactive assignments
- Peer presentations
- Screen capture/ walk through videos
- Minecraft Edu capture videos for lessons
- Just about anything you use video for in the classroom
With the current situation regarding teachers and technology training, HippoVideo offers a video platform that’s easy to use and requires virtually no training at all,
