Joins the Apple version of the app to empower a wider audience of learners anytime, anywhere.
New York, NY, March 25, 2020—Infobase, the award-winning provider of digital reference content to the school and library community, today made an Android version of its Films On Demand mobile app available for download in the Google Play store. The app provides participating users with immediate access to more than 40,000 streaming videos wherever they are. Users must sign in with the username and password for their subscribing library or user account. An Apple version of the app was released last week.
Premier Distance Learning Resource for All Educators
As universities continue to adapt their closure policies due to the COVID-19 pandemic, educators are scrambling to adapt face-to-face courses, and will likely continue to do so into the summer. With more than 25,000 hours of supplemental academic videos, lectures, and documentaries from top producers and a wealth of features that make the content easy to discover and share, Films On Demand is an ideal distance learning resource for all academic institutions. The vetted, curated videos are conveniently segmented into clips for targeted results. Academic librarians, teachers, and students can enjoy unlimited access from any location, on campus or off.
“With many institutions forced to quickly transition to online learning during the current health crisis, there is an urgent need for resources that can offer students a meaningful educational experience remotely,” said Paul Skordilis, president and CEO of Infobase. “Our team has worked tirelessly to make the new Films On Demand app available for both Apple and Android users, opening up thousands of educational streaming videos to a much broader audience.”
Automate Content Delivery and Integration
Infobase’s content delivery system enables librarians and educators to seamlessly deliver self-paced learning that can be accessed through a multitude of learning management systems, including Moodle, Brightspace/D2L, Canvas, and Blackboard.
The availability of the Films On Demand app makes it even more convenient for students to stream videos, not just in the classroom, but on the go—on their smartphone or tablet—wherever they are. They can view playlists that were created and shared by their instructors right from their devices, watch videos assigned for research, and resume watching previously viewed videos, all in an ad-free app.
A Wide Range of Curricular Subjects from Top Producers
Films On Demand’s vast content includes titles from more than 1,200 international producers in more than 35 subjects and more than 1,000 subject categories, presenting a wide variety of the most relevant videos to suit the unique instructional needs of every subject.
