A New Video Beta Integration Between Open LMS and Instilled That You'll Love

By Germán Rojas

Our lives have radically changed in the last few months and the role that technology has played in helping us through this time is unquestionable. Through our recent conversations with clients, we've learned about one of the biggest challenges they're facing today: instructor adoption of online learning environments. This, of course, hugely impacts the learning experience students receive, especially today.

And I speak from experience. My wife is a teacher, and I know how tough it can be to speak out loud to a screen full of black squares, with only a few faces staring back. It can be really challenging to try to create interactive experiences for learners.

A great solution is video!

Introducing Video to Virtual Classrooms

That’s why we’re so excited to share that together with Instilled by PeopleFluent, one of our sister companies in the Learning Technologies Group family, we’re launching a new beta integration that will make it significantly easier for instructors to upload and manage content videos. The new plugin allows the easy upload of videos into courses, where we will auto-encode them, deliver them over a global content delivery network, and provide speech to text captioning, all directly within your Open LMS platform.

So what is Instilled? Instilled is a video-based learning experience platform (or LXP) that is built with learning in mind. But it does a lot more than just recording and uploading videos! The software also allows you to add clickable chapters within your content so users can jump to specific segments of content and synchronize presentation materials (like PDFs and PowerPoint presentations) alongside your videos. More good news is that the videos you upload into the Instilled video plugin won’t count towards your storage in your LMS license, which we know is a huge plus.

A free month trial is now available so you can start exploring how this tool will bring student interaction and engagement to a whole new level. Simply go to My account to request access or get in touch to find out more.

Finally, we have scheduled a series of webinars to share with all of you what this integration is about. Please attend the one that works better for you.
