Clixie Media, an Ann Arbor-based technology company, has announced a new partnership with Google’s Android Partner Training division. The company will add interactive bookmarks, in-video quizzing, and conditional learning paths to Google’s video training content for Google partners.
Clixie provides a fully integrated platform that allows Google educators and course designers to add interactivity and other features in any language to existing video content.
“We are very pleased that Google chose Clixie Media,” says Tim Moore, president of Clixie. “The addition of Clixie provides … value to the partner training curricula for global sales, service, and support. The system’s highly detailed, real-time data makes it an excellent fit for Google partners.”
The resulting videos can be accessed on any device and are customizable to instructors’ needs. Clixie also allows instructors to chapter information, deliver in-video quizzes and polls, and add conditional branching so only relevant content is shown. It also collects data that educators can use to respond to students’ interests and needs.
“We needed to find new ways to engage our global partners, which include retail, carriers, and device manufacturers in our training delivery,” says Ben Tyson, global lead of Android Partner Training Strategy. “We felt that our current offerings were stale. We have found that interactive video has completely revitalized our training programs, and Clixie can provide a much deeper level of tracking and reporting the success our modules have. We will continue this path of delivery for our e-learning content via interactive video.”
