Aurus Network announces cloud-based solution CourseHub for institutions, to launch marketplace in coming months
Delhi-based integrated cloud based platform for video creation – Aurus network, has launched CourseHub that captures video and any other digital aids like presentations, interactive boards/panels and others. CourseHub is capable of delivering high quality HD learning live videos to end users at bandwidths as low as 100 Kbps.
How it works?
CourseHub’s content management server automatically archives the video, making it available for viewing later on-demand with the teacher’s consent. In addition, the teacher has access to sophisticated content management tools to organize videos, make them searchable, edit them with easy to use tools, add interactive quizzes and apply access control.
The platform enables learning centres or teachers to teach in their natural style using chalk and talk or digital aids. They don’t have to be aware of the camera in the classroom, which starts and stops automatically at scheduled times. Further, the live lecture can be delivered to the groups of students via projector/LCD screen to individual students anywhere. To avail live lectures students need to have 100 Kbps download speed and optionally a webcam and microphone.
CourseHub also has features such as timed assessments, rich analytics, integrated video editing and live interaction (text/audio/video) that make the teaching and learning process very smooth and effective like face to face teaching. CourseHub is a fully automated, non-intrusive solution.
Speaking to YourStory about traction of Aurus Network so far, Piyush Agarwal, co-founder and CEO, said, “Currently, we have 40 institutions disseminating their courses through 2,000 internet enabled video screens across different cities.” Recently, the startup had also integrated payment gateway, so that institutes can collect online payments. “In future, we will be launching marketplace for institutes to showcase their live classes to individual students residing across different parts of the country,” added Agarwal. Started in 2010 by Piyush Agrawal and Sujeet Kumar, Aurus Network raised angel investment last year from Indian Angel Network.
