Helping School Districts, Teachers and Students Stay Connected During COVID-19 with Free Video Tools

Vidyard provides free access to its online video and virtual teaching tools to help K-12 school districts and teachers take their communications online with private video content

Vidyard announced today that it will provide all school districts and teachers with free, early access to its secure video messaging and screen sharing solution, Vidyard for Schools, to help school staff and teachers stay connected and productive while physical schools remain closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Attention educators! @Vidyard enables teachers to create and share videos with students and each other—for free! Expand your virtual teaching toolkit.

Staff and teachers of K-12 school districts have been impacted by widespread school closures; as have millions of students and parents. Maintaining effective lines of communication across all levels of the school system–from administrators and staff to teachers and principals–has become increasingly difficult, but the need for face-to-face connection and clear instruction remains. Staff and teachers within school districts need to communicate with each other now more than ever but are still figuring out how to do that effectively while remotely.

Enabling Teachers to Stay Connected with Students and Parents

Teachers can use Vidyard’s flagship video messaging app to easily record, secure, and share private videos with students and parents in just a few simple clicks from their web browser and email app.

For many students, the shift to distance education has removed critically important opportunities for face-to-face interaction, guidance, and instruction from the teacher. This is especially true for younger grades, where literacy skills are still developing and students need more verbal and visual guidance. Video tools for teachers make it easier to:

  • Provide instructions and guidance for assignments, which can be shared with parents who will help their children complete them.
  • Improve student comprehension by allowing them to rewatch videos or even adjust the playback speed to make sure they’re getting the full message

Using Vidyard, teachers can incorporate video into their teaching by recording lesson slides, assignment instructions, and announcements. Online videos make it easier for teachers to explain complex concepts and demonstrate solutions while personally connecting with their students.

“Teachers have had to quickly adapt to distance teaching online, but many of them have only ever taught in a face-to-face capacity with limited support of technology,” says Michael Litt, CEO and co-founder of Vidyard. “While we know that there is no substitute for being in school, we’re here to help teachers and staff members use the power of video to mitigate the impact of this abrupt shift to online teaching and learning. We hope that tools from Vidyard can help the teachers and staff of school districts stay connected with students at a time when it matters most.”
