Open-source online video platform Kaltura says it will partner with educational tech company Remote-Learner to deliver rich media elearning programs that allow lecture delivery, video commenting and feedback, social networking, and note taking with interactive video to educational institutions using R-L's Moodle Learning Management System.
Remote-Learner said that using open-source delivery allows it to offer the "Kaltura Moodle" at reduced cost.
"The partnership between Kaltura and Remote-Learner once again demonstrates the power of open-source software to deliver cost-effective, compelling learning experiences," said Bryan Williams, Remote-Learner CEO. "With Kaltura we can offer our clients the ability to seamlessly integrate rich-media capabilities into their Moodle course with a cost effective, robust technology. Teachers and students will have the ability to share video, audio and pictures with each other using only their browser and a web cam."
The Moodle software is an open-source, global development project that already has more than 30 million registered users and sees more than 1,000 new installations every month.
"We are delighted to partner with Remote-Learner to further expand our reach into educational institutions' e-learning programs," Ron Yekutiel, Kaltura chairman and CEO said. "We are seeing loads of new and exciting EDU video applications being created using our flexible open-source platform, including library digitization, internal YouTube-like applications and much more."
