From what we can see, video chat and education seem to be a marriage made in heaven. We’ve already highlighted several distance learning apps that have used OpenTok to power their video chat – Hoot.me, TutorTrove and Learningfy – and today we are announcing another, LiveLearn.tv, as the winner of the second week of our Developer contest.
Congratulations to Deverraux and team!
LiveLearn.tv allows students to connect with teachers in a wide range of educational fields, at all levels and even lets you collaborate with other students. For teachers, they make it easy to scheduled classes and even receive payment for them. Ultimately they have one goal, to make learning accessible. We’re excited for OpenTok to be part of that.
There are two more weeks of the contest to go, so get building. This week’s prize is a Boxee and the deadline is Monday 28th at 11:59pm. But, don’t forget there is an iPad on the line the week after and then the ultimate prize – promotion to 2million TokBox users.
