The first Australian education apps are starting to appear, and the charge is being led by ClickView, which is used by thousands of schools around the country.
The native Windows 8 ClickView Player app allows you to search and playback videos, podcasts and vodcasts from the ClickView library, and the ClickView Exchange content.
There's tons of video content in the ClickView library from TED, ABC, Discovery Education, NASA etc. And it's clearly structured under subject and topic headings. And then ClickView Exchange allows schools to share content including videos from free to air TV stations, recorded and uploaded by ClickView users. This online source of relevant, educational content contains 15,000+ titles that have been added by teachers around Australia. Yep, ClickView had to be really careful with copyright for all of this, which is why only educational users in Australia can get access to this.
What does the ClickView Windows 8 app do?
