Of course your university most likely already has a system in place for recording the curriculum lectures and making them quickly available to the students. BoinxTV stands out as a tool for turning your premium lectures into marketing material. Why not use the lectures from a famous nobel laureate or science "rock star" to attract students, other great teachers and financial partners? With BoinxTV it is easier and cheaper to produce video that looks like it has been made by a professional TV crew. A single operator switches cameras, adds graphical effects, titles and more during the lecture and the production is done the minute the lecture ends without the need of post production.
As an ADE and technology trainer I often have to deal with reluctant teachers. Often they asume media applications are difficult to master and that making movies or podcasts is something that's only 'available' to students. BoinxTV is so easy to use that I'm quite sure it will be helping me to make more teachers cross over to develop more media rich education.Fons van den Berg, Helikon redactie.training.advies
Of course, BoinxTV integrates with your iTunes U system for easy content distribution. Just connect to your PodcastProducer server directly from within BoinxTV and submit the recording to your iTunes U workflow right after the lecture ends. The new lecture will be available very quickly in your iTunes U program.
You can even take it a step further and go live on the internet or just internally on the campus, streaming the lectures live to students around the world. There are a number of reasons why it makes sense to live stream sessions of your scientific conferences: People who were unable to make the trip can still participate and travel expenses and the carbon footprint can be dramatically reduced for everybody. All with an affordable setup.
Fostering a community on campus can be challenging. Campus TV is one way to engage students both as creators and consumers. Broadcast student events, sports, celebrations and everything else that makes living on campus worth while.
Train Media Competencies
But not only being a great tool for video creation makes BoinxTV relevant on campus. In studies related to all things media, BoinxTV can help to train students in media production, journalism, presentation and other media competencies. Using BoinxTV, they will feel like the pros.
Easy on the budget
The equipment for a full-blown television studio is a heavy investment for educational organizations, many times it is simply out of reach. With BoinxTV, universities get an affordable, scalable and easy-to-learn solution to build a low-cost TV studio. BoinxTV provides all the possibilities of expensive studio hardware, with software, to create shows having a higher production quality, in less time, at a fraction of the cost.
Cut down production time
Mankind is wired for learning by imitation and even complex scientific experiements are often more easily explained using a short video. But most people avoid making videos because you normally have to spend a large amount of time editing the video after recording it. BoinxTV cuts down on that time significantly, often removing the need for editing entirely.
