Online Videos Support Curriculum
AIMS Multimedia has launched DigitalCurriculum.com, an on-demand streaming video library made specifically for students and teachers seeking to use the Internet as a learning tool. For a nominal fee, teachers and other school administrators can have access to three 500+ video libraries covering subjects such as science, social studies, language arts, health, guidance, and mathematics. Users can search the site using various parameters, including state subject framework correlations. Videos are encoded at five different rates, and will play on connections anywhere from 28k to T1 or cable modem. The movies play on Microsoft's Windows Media Player, and automatically stream at the best possible speed. Downloadable teacher activity guides are also available to supplement learning.
