Educational video publisher AIM Education, Inc. has announced new features that enhance its online Learn360 video streaming service for K-12 schools, including a personalized "My Learn360" homepage for teachers. The page is filled with tools that teachers can use to help them complete tasks faster and strengthen communication with students and colleagues, the announcement states. From the new page, teachers can now take advantage of  an assignment and quiz creation tool; the ability to upload and share any of their own documents and media; a classroom blog creating tool; more activities and teacher’s guides; a personalized calendar; and a podcasting tool.

 

Learn360 uses the latest technologies to deliver the highest quality K-12 content via the internet, including delivery by LAN or WAN networks for school districts, at a flat price, according to the announcement. Learn360 provides administrators, educators and students with a growing library of full-length educational videos, thousands of video clips, audio files, and still images that they can access over the internet at www.Learn360.com. The site enables users to add their own content and includes robust administrative features. All full-length videos and video clips are aligned to state standards. Anybody in a district, including students, can access the site anytime from anywhere there is internet access.

 

Each video for Learn360 is available in three formats that educators can choose from for viewing and downloading: Flash, Windows Media and QuickTime. Still images are jpg and Audio files are MP3 format. Districts can seamlessly customize the site to provide their educators with access to other media that they already own within Learn360. Users can easily add links to their own content in any digital video or audio format, incorporating it into the management system.

  

Learn360 is available now as an annual subscription through AIM Education, Inc. The service is for both Macintosh and Windows users with internet access. Learn360 can accommodate users at all Internet access speeds, but a minimum of a DSL connection is recommended. The subscription allows administrators, educators and students on-demand access on both school and home computers via the Internet. The price for Learn360 is customized for schools, districts, regional media centers, or states.
