Collaborative, Social Learning
with Open Digital Content
Features & Specs
Organize Class Materials 30hand provides an easy-to-use interface that allows teachers to quickly create course outlines then drag and drop multimedia content into the course and organize it by topic, unit, theme, module, project team or learning style. Students always have quick access to the materials they need, and teachers can quickly change the course structure as needed.
Integrate Open Content Open digital content can add great value to a course and enhance student engagement, especially when it is video content. Teachers search for any words, preview resulting content and click to insert it into a class. It's as easy as that! We are truly integrating the best content available on the web from MIT OCW to KhanAcademy to CK-12, edX and more.
Capture Lectures on Video Presio is our unique product that allows teachers and students to effortlessly synchronize video with their presentations or to add audio voice-over. Add the video/audio to an existing presentation, or synchronize them after they are both completed. Either way, students can play back the dual-window Presio at their own pace any time and on any device.
Interact Collaboratively Courses in 30hands have a Timeline that allows students to interact with course materials the same way they do with Facebook and Twitter outside of school. The Timeline allows for interactive discussions around course videos, presentations and other content, while simultaneously providing direct links to the material at hand. 30hands merges Collaborative Social Media with Structured Content.
Blogs, Wikis & Presentations Students love to express themselves using social media with their friends. 30hands allows them to create school portfolios of blog postings, wikis and presentations. Items can be shared with courses or stand alone in the student's portfolio. By giving them a voice in the class on their own terms, students gain greater self-confidence and retain more knowledge.
Anywhere & Any Device Without access to content, it is useless. That's why 30hands runs on any platform. We ensure that videos and presentations do not require special programs like Flash or Powerpoint. Each uploaded item is converted to a user-friendly, platform independent format when necessary. This means students can review class materials 24x7 and on laptops, tablets and smartphones.
