Mediacore, Snagit Partner To Help Flip Classrooms
TechSmith has partnered with Mediacore to allow Snagit users to upload content more easily in an effort to help instructors flip their classrooms more easily.
Mediacore is an online library for schools to share and manage video resources. Snagit is a tool that allows users to create screen captured images and videos.
"This partnership provides educators with a simple way to create and share visual content, making the flipped classroom achievable for all," said Stuart Bowness, co-founder and CEO at MediaCore, in a prepared statement. "Through the content created with Snagit, educators can create extensive media libraries that will help students of all levels and abilities, making the learning experience more interactive and personalized than ever before."
"We're looking forward to using Snagit in conjunction with MediaCore; we think it will make it easier to create video learning content and securely share it with our users, with only a few simple clicks. MediaCore's Moodle plugin will also allow us to share Snagit videos via our Moodle platform, where we can build rich learning experiences around them." said Sarah Sherman, BLE service manager at Bloomsbury Colleges, University of London, in a prepared statement. "It will be particularly valuable for those members of our staff who regularly create screencast content — it will make the whole process so much quicker and easier, saving them time and allowing them to create great content more often."
