Learn360 3.0 Enhances Digital Media Sharing

AIM Education has introduced Learn360 3.0, a major update to the company's digital media repository and sharing service. The latest release, which was announced at last week's FETC 2010 conference in Florida, gets improved performance and, according to the company, enhanced media sharing capabilities.

Learn360 is a streaming media and social networking service targeted specifically toward K-12 education. The service provides images and streaming video and audio from a wide range of media publishers, including premium content from National Geographic and PBS. In addition to providing third-party content, Learn360 also allows educators (and students) to upload their own media, which can then be accessed through the system. It supports calendaring and includes test creation and blogging tools.

Learn360 Version 3.0, according to the company, is designed to streamline sharing and make materials more accessible in a variety of learning situations, including distance learning. Download speeds have been improved, and user-generated content can now be incorporated into podcasts, presentations, quizzes, and other materials.
