Brief Abstract

University of Phoenix has developed a system and process for delivering high quality, accessible video to online learners through a variety of platforms, for a rich experience. By utilizing Vimeo, BlackBoard Ultra, Rev.com, and WordPress, online students view video embedded directly into their course with closed captions. An extended experience allows interaction with transcripts, all within a robust and low-cost delivery network. We'll show you how it works.
