The University of Kentucky is expanding its video-on-demand platform, called Vimeo, to include a variety of content.
The university’s students are already watching TV from laptops, smartphones and tablets, but now, with the addition of an iPad, they’ll be able to stream their content to the TV at home.
The new platform, Vimeo for Education, will also be used by universities to provide content to students, said John Miller, vice president of digital content for the university.
The university also has a Vimeo app that students can download to their smartphones.
Miller said the new platform will help students in the classroom, where they can find information on topics that interest them.
And the app will allow teachers to use it for teaching their students about video-based content.
“The app will help teachers better understand how to engage with students, and help them understand the difference between how we’re teaching students to watch video and how we need to teach them how to learn,” Miller said.
He said the Vimeo platform will allow the university to create content that will help teach students about how technology is changing their learning experience.
“It’s an important step in our evolution of the education experience,” Miller added.
The University of Cincinnati recently added Vimeo to its platform and is now adding Vimeo videos to all courses in the school’s online learning platform, which it launched in 2014.
The videos can be watched from any device, including Apple TV, Roku, Apple Watch, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Xbox 360, the university said in a blog post last month.
The Cincinnati campus launched the VHS channel of its online learning in 2014, with students able to watch a variety video formats from the library.
The Cincinnati University of Arts and Sciences said the video platform allows students to connect to one another via a central channel and view all their videos in the same place, a process that could help students to make connections with one another and learn together.
