Watchitoo Partners With Pearson eCollege for Highly Engaging Video Collaboration Platform

The Fully Integrated Platform Will Deliver a Synchronous Streaming Video Tool to Pearson LearningStudio Users (March 26, 2012)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/26/12 -- Watchitoo (www.watchitoo.com), the interactive, SaaS-based collaboration solution that provides institutions with student engagement, tracking and reporting capabilities, announced that it has partnered with Pearson eCollege to provide an integrated solution directly accessible from within the Pearson LearningStudio platform.

Watchitoo combines video conferencing, collaboration and online video into a single scalable platform that enhances interaction for both instructors and students. Watchitoo's easy to use interface, seamlessly embedded within the Pearson LearningStudio, allows real-time dialogue between the student and instructor as well as between students. This dynamic environment makes remote learning more impactful, more engaging and increases value to both the students and the institutions.

Class participants can engage in synchronous video class discussions as well as interact via whiteboard, screen-sharing, chat, questions and polling. Watchitoo's platform allows up to 25 live participants to simultaneously collaborate via video in a virtual classroom environment, around nearly any form of media (such as PDFs, PowerPoint presentations, documents, photos and Hi-Definition video clips) -- and additional participants can interact via audio and text questions. Files can be arranged in a playlist ahead of time, classes can easily be recorded and real-time reporting is available to track attendance and engagement.

"Distance learning institutions and universities around the globe are looking for a cost-effective and synchronous video learning platform," said Rony Zarom, CEO of Watchitoo. "Our leading edge and scalable interactive streaming platform gives educational institutions the ability to host lectures and learning sessions from their own websites that can be just as powerful as a physical learning experience."


"The integrated Watchitoo solution will allow educators to engage with students in new and meaningful ways, leading to higher course attendance, student retention and improved academic results," said Jeff Borden, VP of Instruction & Academic Strategies at Pearson eCollege.
