HEDLINE: MediaCore partners with Pearson

Vancouver-based MediaCore announced that it has partnered with Pearson to expand the use of video in online courses.

Founded in 2010, MediaCore raised over $1 million in Seed Funding and works together with universities, Fortune 500 companies and smaller organisations reaching millions of learners worldwide.

Key Takeaway

MediaCore offers a cloud based platform that automatically converts uploaded videos so that they can be watched on any device. Under the partnership MediaCore’s technology will be integrated in Pearson’s LearningStudio.

Videos play an essential part in new teaching approaches like the flipped classroom or MOOCs. “MediaCore’s ability to automatically convert videos so they can be viewed on any device will help empower teaching staff to use video to enrich the online course experience” states Erica Tuohy, Pearson’s director of technology partners.

MediaCore’s platform has been recently selected by Yale School of Management and Penn State University and already is used by Lehman College, Indiana University and the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in the UK.
