Philadelphia, PA (June 24, 2019) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, announces it has formed a strategic partnership with Boclips, a leading educational video content provider, to enhance the teaching experience through video-assisted learning with myViewBoard™ Clips. myViewBoard Clips allows K-12 educators to use the ViewSonic myViewBoard digital whiteboarding ecosystem to access more than 2 million licensed educational videos, free from advertising and inappropriate content and curated for specific subjects.
“We are delighted to be working with Boclips. We are two like-minded organizations that share a common goal of making the classroom a more effective and fun place to teach and learn,” said Bonny Cheng, President of the Global Product Group at ViewSonic. “With this collaboration we are excited to offer the myViewBoard Clips subscription. We seek to give educators access to a plethora of safe and relevant video content on top of the already well-established tools that are accessible on the ViewSonic myViewBoard ecosystem.”
“This collaboration brings our extensive library of educational videos to ViewSonic’s myViewBoard community, making the classroom an even more exciting place to impart and acquire knowledge,” said David Bainbridge, Boclips CEO and Founder. “Through the new educational video-streaming feature myViewBoard Clips, teachers will be able to find video content to support their learning objectives and easily incorporate it into their lectures and other activities, free from commercial distractions and firewall restrictions.”
myViewBoard is an end-to-end solution that offers teachers an easy-to-use platform to prepare engaging classroom content, present interactive lessons, and encourage participation in the classroom. The new learning tool, myViewBoard Clips, contains supplementary content from Boclips’s library of over 150 trusted and renowned media partners, including TED, PBS NewsHour and Bloomberg, as well as teacher-favorites like Crash Course, Minute Earth and LearnZillion.
