All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast in a single large city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value.




What is the simplest way of gathering and keeping video clips for use in lessons, and for use by students?

Ask a group of young students what happened in a television programme that they watched last week, and they will undoubtedly be able to tell you.

The reason is simple - television uses moving images and sounds to put its message across in a multi-media manner.

Which is why many of us now use video clips as an aid to teaching.

But there are two problems. The first involves finding the clips, and the second involves storing them in an ordered way so that you can retrieve them the moment that you want them back.

To solve this problem we've produced Kingshurst onDemand - a simple video management system that gives you 100% control of the video you use in your classroom and which you make available to students.

What's more, if you subscribe to the service, we'll also provide you with a regular update of new video clips that you might like to note and store. By putting all your third party video content in one place you will be able to access it immediately, incorporating not only broadcast video but also produced by the students themselves allowing peer assessment and feedback on progress.

You'll also be able to attach supporting resources to your videos. Students will have access to worksheets, web links and anything else you can think of, without leaving the video they are watching.
