The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) and EnhanceTV are collaborating to provide a video streaming service for the tertiary education sector.

Under the collaboration, RMIT Publishing will work with EnhanceTV Direct technology to further develop and create Informit EduTV as a resource for the tertiary market.

The new video streaming service is being tailored for the tertiary sector and Simon Lake, Chief Executive, Screenrights and EnhanceTV, said it would offer a “world of audiovisual content to Australian Universities and TAFEs.”

Lake said that, with Informit EduTV, lecturers can use entire programs, or create short clips, and upload lesson plans, without the need for onsite storage or specialised equipment.

“Lecturers can also add notes and email a link to students - all in a couple of clicks. The prepared clips and lesson plans can be stored on EduTV, creating a valuable resource library for the institution.”

According to Lake, EnhanceTV and RMIT Publishing offer a combined depth of expertise, and, he said, Informit EduTV was anticipated to set a new standard in educational media products.

“By sharing resources, EnhanceTV and RMIT Publishing will continue to create efficiencies for the service, making it an affordable and practical solution for tertiary institutions.”

Currently, Informit EduTV digitally streams recorded television content while also offering what Lake said was “unique sharing and storing functionalities.”

Lake also said that Informit EduTV provided access to over 13,000 educational programs from wherever users were in Australia, and featured an effective search function which includes searching for the spoken word.  “With content streamed straight to a computer, iPad or iPhone, it replaces RMIT’s current DVD distribution service, Request TV.”

Rachel Holthouse, CEO of RMIT Training, said the collaboration was an exciting and significant step for RMIT Publishing and Screenrights.

“We are delighted to be working closely with Screenrights to provide access to media resources and support the education aims of Australian Universities and Institutions.”
