Dedicated to providing an engaging and industry-calibrated learning environment for educating its current and future business professionals, the University of Wisconsin Whitewater College of Business and Economics (UWW) recognizes the ever-growing power of video as a tool for creating a seamless eLearning experience.

According to Kelley, choosing vzaar as UWW's partner in delivering high quality video content to its international students was an easy decision, "We chose vzaar for multiple reasons, from the fact that we can call someone directly with support issues, to the slick design of the video player, to the multiple playback formatting options. vzaar's support has been top-notch, ensuring that all of our questions are answered as soon as is possible."
Higher education clients often put the ease of use at the top of their priorities list, making sure the new video management tool is as user-friendly for teachers as it is beneficial for the students. Kelley further explains, "vzaar's video player, API options and user interface allowed simpler access to our lectures, enabling us to house all of our content in one location."
Kelley continues, "We have a lot of international students, as well as students in the military, and because of this we needed a solution to allow students with limited internet access to attend our online programs. vzaar's download button allowed us to enable students to listen to lectures on the go."
