Haivision today announced that its award-winning Furnace(TM) IP video distribution system will integrate with Moodle(TM) and Blackboard(R), two widely adopted university learning management systems (LMS), enabling students and course instructors to access live and on-demand video content as a supplement to their coursework.
"Learning management systems like Moodle and Blackboard are essential tools in the university learning environment, providing an online 'workspace' for students to access course material, collaborate with other students and faculty, and manage their schedules and course assignments," said JoAnne Gaudreau, vice president of marketing at Haivision. "The demand for video is growing very quickly and has become a critical component in the educator's content mix. With the new Furnace integration, access to secure live and on-demand video content is fast and simple with a single click on the Moodle or Blackboard desktop. As a result, students and instructors no longer have to visit the media lab or library, then locate and load the physical media in order to present or watch video."
