VideoMost for online education and LMS
VideoMost is a powerful online platform enabling seminars and discussions that scale from small groups to 1000 people. VideoMost provides interactive video meetings, conversations, content, and education-related external apps through a single interface. Teachers can create collaborative classrooms, connect in professional learning communities, and communicate with school staff using VideoMost on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android
Scheduling lessons online – exact time, date and duration
VideoMost allows to enter in subject, date, start time and other related details to schedule a conference. Each teacher may create certain class in VideoMost for the desired date/time and copy the invitation details for sending it to students. At the same time, students aren’t required to register for an account to join.
Joining meeting from any location of the teacher and students
VideoMost reliably works on all popular PC and mobile platforms - no matter what the users’ devices, network channels, locations are. Each participant should simply click on the link received over email or messenger to be automatically brought into the conference. It is also works via filling in conference ID and login.
Whiteboard and doc / screen / app sharing
Making notes and schemes on a whiteboard and sharing docs increases students’ engagement and helps teacher to convey topic of the lesson a lot. Equally fair that students can also demonstrate their projects - to show what they’re working on while practicing their presentation skills. VideoMost suits both scenarios. Moreover, teacher can assign and manage rights for sharing.
School-like acoustic environment
Each user of VideoMost can mute its’ microphone to cut off any distracting noises. It helps to avoid background noise and allow students to focus on the lesson.
VideoMost allows teacher to launch the poll during the online lesson and gather the responses from the students.
VideoMost interface includes in-meeting chat allowing sending messages and share hyperlinks for teacher and students. It is possible to send a private message to an individual user, or to an entire group.
Online security and privacy
Providing a safe and secure remote learning experience for all the students is essential so education organizations should move away from using cloud-based video conferencing services vulnerable to hacker attacks. VideoMost server is available for on-premise installation to deploy learning environment for teachers and students with all required capabilities and appropriate security measures in place and support TLS and SSL.
Configure user experiences using policies
VideoMost admin panel provides the ability to control the options available for specific users or groups of users. Policies can be applied to define who should be allowed to use private chat, private calling, meeting scheduling, content types that can be shared, and more. Policies set boundaries on what the students can do.
LMS and VideoMost: better together for distance learning
In order to support a connected and engaged school community, VideoMost Server for video conferences and team work is designed to be used with features that add to – and don’t replace – current use of a certain learning management systems and other apps through REST and WebSocket API.
In a distance learning scenario, VideoMost can work fluidly alongside several LMSes and apps, supporting the crucial need for online lectures, discussion, and productive collaboration. We offer to keep using same LMS but with VideoMost features like group video meetings, live events, webinars, and more. It is easy to turn off the VideoMost features not relevant to institution, leverage the ones that are, and create a multi-tool solution that enables students, teachers, and staff to do their best work.
