BANGALORE, December 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Implements Video-based Platform to Overcome Geographical Challenges and Drive Even Better Learning Outcomes
Impartus, a provider of innovative video-enabled learning solutions that drive better outcomes for the higher education sector, today announced that it has been chosen by Jaipuria Institute of Management, one of the largest groups in northern and central India to offer AICTE-approved PGDM programs, to link four campuses with its award-winning video-based learning platform.
Jaipuria Institute of Management has been delivering superior quality education in India consistently for more than seventy years. In keeping with its mission to continuously upgrade and upscale the quality and spread of its educational endeavor, Jaipuria has selected Impartus to provide a video-based platform that will enable the institute to provide lectures happening at different locations to all of its students across multiple campuses. The video lectures will be available in real time via live-streaming, as well as archived for on-demand viewing at a later time.
"Jaipuria's journey in education began in 1945 with the establishment of the Jaipuria College in Kolkata, and has expanded over the years to include four world class campuses in Lucknow, Noida, Jaipur and Indore," said Mr. Shreevats Jaipuria, Vice Chairperson, Jaipuria Institute of Management. "Although having multiple campuses is wonderful because it allows us to serve more students, it can present logistical challenges to arranging guest lectures by industry experts and star professors. We are excited to implement Impartus' video platform, in order to overcome these challenges and enable all of our students to partake in each and every lecture that may be taking place at our institute, even if it is physically happening at another campus."
Impartus' solution will enable lightweight video files to be streamed and viewed online, without consuming an excessive amount of bandwidth. This will allow Jaipuria's students to either view the lectures in real time as they are taking place, or on an on-demand basis later, after the lecture is finished.
"We are thrilled to have been chosen by a prestigious institute such as Jaipuria, and confident that their campuses will benefit from our video-based learning platform," said Manish Kumar, Co-Founder and Head of Product Development and Implementation, Impartus. "This is a perfect example of how video can empower instructors to teach and students to learn more effectively, while simultaneously allowing administrators to drive better outcomes with existing resources."
