Interactive media-on-demand service for K-12, Learn360, has announced that Fairfax Country Public Schools, the largest school district in Virginia, has signed a multi-year contract to receive streaming media and digital content management services from the Woodbury, NY company. This district-wide contract covers more than 200 schools and allows Learn360 to provide core resources to more than 22,000 teachers and 175,000 students.
“By offering outstanding quality media, Learn360 provides students and teachers with access to an abundance of curriculum-appropriate multimedia,” said Mike Kroening, executive vice president of sales at Learn360 in a prepared statement. “Additionally, our user-friendly website helps to provide our educational communities with the tools to keep learning informative and fun, 24/7 from anywhere with internet access. Being chosen as the exclusive provider for the Fairfax County Public Schools supports our goal of being a top-tier solution for 21st century classrooms.”
The multi-year contract with the district allows schools to stream or download Learn360’s collection of videos. Fairfax County will also upload custom content to the server for its students and educators to incorporate in lessons.
“Our schools focus on using multimedia to enhance instruction,” said Karen Sokol, IT project manager at Fairfax County Public Schools. “Our new subscription to Learn360 will allow teachers to select and use streamed videos, audio files, images and other media that can accentuate or reinforce a concept for students. A contemporary and growing catalog that is aligned with state standards, and an interface designed for ease of use will make Learn360 a valuable K-12 supplemental resource in our schools.”
Learn360 provides customers with thousands of digital video titles, images, articles, audio files and podcasts. These resources are provided by top educational publishers such as BBC Motion Gallery, Encyclopedia Britannica, A&E Television Networks (which include A&E, History and Bio) and National Geographic, among others.
