New York, NY, May 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kaltura, the video experience cloud, has been selected as the National Research and Education Network’s (NREN) Education Video Cloud provider of choice to support teachers across Canada. The announcement follows the nationwide RFP issued earlier this year to identify the ideal web conferencing solution for Canadian schools.
Faced with the ongoing limitation of in-person instruction, Canada’s NREN Partners have been focusing on identifying tools and platforms to simplify the experience for both teachers and students, empowering all parties to maximize the potential of remote video learning. Educational institutions across Canada, representing K-12 and higher education, will have access to Kaltura’s Education Video Cloud and its video solutions. The program will be available in both French and English.
Designed and built to support and enhance education in the classroom and beyond, Kaltura’s Education Video Cloud can address any video need across campus, including Learning Management System (LMS) integration, Media Portal, Lecture Capture, Live Streaming, or Webcasting, and more. Kaltura’s Real-time Virtual Classroom, which focuses on driving engagement and creating interactive learning experiences, provides easy-to-use moderation controls, collaborative whiteboards, live quizzes, breakout rooms, and video sharing.
“We’re extremely honored to be chosen by Canada’s NREN Partners to provide proven and practical video solutions to educators and students in schools across Canada,” said Eynav Azaria, the General Manager of Enterprise and Education at Kaltura. “This past year has put tremendous pressure on teachers and students to quickly adapt to remote education. But looking forward, video will remain integrated into learning processes. Kaltura’s ability to consolidate multiple video solutions into a single location will play a key role in streamlining how educators use video and this will be integral to how schools and teachers ensure that students have an optimal environment to learn.”
“Video has always been an important learning medium, but this past year has turned video into a mission critical mode of communication and learning,” said Bala Kathiresan,Chair of the NREN Governance Committee. “As we move increasingly into hybrid and remote learning experiences, we are delighted to offer schools across Canada access to Kaltura’s video solutions that are designed for education, and built with scale and security in mind, we look forward to working closely together to bring the power of video to faculty and students nationwide.”
