Clarkstown Achieved Greater Success with Interactive Video Presentations

Clarkstown TV Studio is using VIDIZMO interactive video presentation suite for students and teachers in a Master’s program in educational technology. “Three 30-second videos, 1000 words of written material, three surveys, and six short quizzes took most viewers about 16 minutes to complete. Asynchronous learning was easily accomplished. Completion was assured, and it fulfilled a requirement for the course and for the state that can be verified by the analytics.” Says David Kaminski, Instructor, Technology coordinator and In-Charge TV Studio at Clarkstown TV Studio. VIDIZMO On-Demand Presenter enabled authors to synchronize videos with PowerPoint slides, images, documents, sounds, and text captions. The ease to edit presentations allowed students and teachers to re-define historical videos, full transcripts, and documentaries to teach about history and event.

The video presentation technology and fully searchable presentations helped instructors to demonstrate how watching a video and reading the words someone has spoken are different, enabling media literacy component. “Video, sounds, and text can be repurposed in a number of ways using VIDIZMO and having videos, sounds, images, and text allow our teachers to create a variety of lessons and quizzes for their students.” States David.
