Pasadena, CA – INTELECOM Intelligent Telecommunications (INTELECOM) today announced that its Online Resources Network®, a digital video content repository and streaming service, is now searchable through SoftChalk LessonBuilder.
The media search integration between INTELECOM’s award-winning reference and search service and the latest version of SoftChalk makes the process of finding and integrating video content effortless for educators looking to create media-rich lessons for online learning. This update will also allow subscribers to the INTELECOM Online Resources Network®, which offers a comprehensive selection of hosted and streamed video clips covering a range of core concepts and topics within different academic disciplines, to be seamlessly integrated within SoftChalk.
The SoftChalk Digital Repository Program, which now includes INTELECOM, connects SoftChalk products and SoftChalk users with a variety of online content and media repositories. SoftChalk’s media search tool currently includes open (creative commons), premium (fee-based license) and private (access restricted) media collections.
 
"Our integration with SoftChalk does more than make creating quality online content easier,” says Cameron Cox, Vice President of Marketing at INTELECOM.  “It addresses instructional design standards, helps campuses leverage their investments in technology, and enhances the learning experience for students.”
