Screenrights has announced changes to its educational video resources platform, EnhanceTV. EnhanceTV is shifting its focus towards offering services to schools in collaboration with other resource centres, starting with ABC Education and ClickView.

As an educational streaming service, EnhanceTV successfully reached over half of all Australian schools, supporting educators by facilitating access to screen content and maximising the usefulness of the Screenrights Educational Licence to schools. Having achieved these objectives, EnhanceTV will be concentrating on partnering with other educational organisations, such as its recently announced collaboration with ABC Education and its work with ClickView.

“EnhanceTV originally started as a service that provided teachers with information on educational broadcasts and a store from which to purchase copied programs. It then became an online streaming platform offering a vast archive of broadcast content under the Australian Educational Licence,” said Screenrights Chief Executive James Dickinson. “Usage of our members’ programs under the educational licence has grown exponentially over the last few years through EnhanceTV and other providers, showing the continuing value of screen content to educators. We look forward to seeing the further benefits this next iteration of the EnhanceTV service will bring.”

Over the coming months EnhanceTV will be working with ClickView to provide an improved service for schools, and transferring its user accounts to ClickView. ClickView offers a variety of complementary teaching materials such as study guides, and an enriching user experience for teachers and students. Educators will be able to access materials specifically aligned to the Australian curriculum and updated regularly to meet subject requirements. ClickView is working closely with EnhanceTV and account holders to integrate key aspects of current user accounts and make this transition as smooth as possible.

EnhanceTV and Screenrights will be looking to develop further initiatives in order to continue to offer broad ongoing benefits to teachers and content rightsholders.
