Knowledgemotion, the London based company behind boclips, the world’s largest library for video in education, and Zaption, the San Francisco based leading video learning company announce a content and technology partnership to provide a massive library of professional and inspiring video content for Zaption users worldwide.

Both companies were created with a mission to transform the experience of video in education from passive viewing to active learning.  As the use of online video for learning continues to accelerate, there is an immediate need to access professional, rights-ready videos relevant for learning outcomes across higher education, K-12, tertiary and corporate training curricula.

David Bainbridge, co-founder and CEO of Knowledgemotion observes “Zaption’s innovative technology is exactly what we predicted might be possible when we first created boclips. Chris and the team at Zaption have done an incredible job to create easy-to-use technology that allows learning to be adaptive and dynamic and no longer passive.”

Speaking on behalf of Zaption, Chris Walsh, CEO, added, “We can’t be more excited to have found a transatlantic edtech content partner to serve a growing US and International education market using Zaption.  Knowledgemotion’s platform offers scale, enormous choice and they are rapidly becoming the global experts at aggregating rights-ready content aligned to the curriculum.”

This new partnership and product integration will be unveiled at the EDUCAUSE 2015 conference in Indianapolis, USA where Zaption will be attending and exhibiting.  The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference is the premier higher education IT event.

Dear friends of bo… welcome to the new school year!

As promised, we have been working hard throughout the summer to increase the offering of our video library for the education community from our initial beta release. As a result, we are thrilled to announce the launch of bo 2.0, an extensive archive of 1.7 million videos for use in all kinds of education materials, from e-books and learning management systems to lesson plans and other digital products. We have drawn together content from world-renowned providers including Getty Images, Bloomberg, AP, BBC Worldwide Learning and British Movietone, and have made these videos searchable against any education curriculum or course. Not only this – our archive is growing daily as we add more videos and introduce new content partners.Thanks to our early customers and partners making use of our assets and services, we are excited that the bo story is getting bigger and better – and we now have a range of compelling case studies proving the impact of rich and relevant video in primary, secondary, higher education, corporate learning, and English language learning. These case studies can be viewed on our new website homepage at www.boclips.com.

We will have more exciting news to share with you in the coming months, so stay tuned, and thanks for being part of the home of video in education.
