EduVision is an application that gives your school / school district their own video portal without advertisements. EduVision allows multiple levels of administration so that you can allow classroom teachers to post videos to their own channel or even their grade level / content area so that videos are very well organized. This is a great service to post student produced video projects.
The EduVision portal was designed to be implemented into your schools' CMS4Schools web presence simply by adding a new page to your current site. Via an iframe the entire video portal is delivered through your own video portal page. Additionally, individual video titles can also be embedded on your web pages via copy and paste embed codes that can be accessed by advanced contributors, the channel manager or site administrator.
We recommend signing up for a 30-day Free Trial of EduVision. If you enjoy EduVision, please find out more about your exclusive EduVision pricing for CMS4Schools customers.
This Help Doc will focus on uploading video and adding it to a webpage within CMS4Schools.
