We are pleased to announce that Teach For America, an amazing non-profit organization that is focused on building the movement to eliminate education inequity by enlisting our nation's most promising future leaders, has partnered with Brightcove to bolster their online video offerings.
As background, Teach For America is the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all academic majors and career interests who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools and become leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunities. The corps members work relentlessly to ensure that more students in our country's lowest-income communities are given the educational opportunities they deserve.
Later this year, Teach For America will roll out the Brightcove Video Cloud online video platform on TFANet, its online hub where more than 30,000 corps members (teachers), alumni and staff can collaborate, share best practices and support each other as they work to eliminate educational inequity from a wide range of sectors. Teach For America is excited to promote more than 500 videos that highlight excellent teaching practices and inspiring stories from the corps and alumni movement. The next phase of Brightcove implementation will include TFA’s public site, teachforamerica.org, which is the organization’s public online home and the starting point for tens of thousands of people who apply to join Teach For America each year. Teach For America believes that video can play a unique role in helping to close the achievement gap by inspiring more people to join and support the effort as well as by showing what great teaching and leadership look like in practice.
This is a very exciting partnership for Brightcove and we are proud to support Teach For America's mission and help the organization to expand its reach through online video. We will be sharing more updates from Teach For America as they introduce more video initiatives, so stay tuned!
