Online video impacts our day-to-day lives in many ways, from how we are entertained, to how we communicate and get the news. Perhaps the most exciting potential for positive impact is in education.
Today we're thrilled to announce that we are providing encoding services to Khan Academy, for video that's destined for its new iPad application. Khan has garnered lots of attention for using online video and technology to enable personalized learning across a mind-boggling array of topics.
Services like Zencoder make it easy for Khan Academy to deploy online video. Lead Developer Ben Kamens commented "Zencoder handles all of our video conversions and prep for the App Store automatically, which is a huge time saver for us. Without them, we'd be going through quite a bit more pain to send our educational videos to the iPad crowd."
