Zane Publishing PowerCD Software for Homeschool Now Online in Video Format
FLORIDA, June. 22, 2010: Zane Education announced today the launch of their new K12 educational video on-demand subscription service at www.zaneducation.com. The innovative website, which is believed to be the first of its kind, provides homeschoolers, teachers, schools and students with access to a comprehensive library of subtitled online videos developed for the K-12 curriculum. This new service enables students of all ages to learn a particular topic and then test themselves using interactive quizzes designed to continue the learning process. The single most notable feature of this service is the sub-titling of the videos which research is now demonstrating has the ability to greatly improve reading literacy levels in a short period of time.
The launch of Zane Education’s on-demand subtitled K12 video subscription service features:
- A valuable tool for homeschooling offering significant savings on textbooks
- The opportunity for students to learn at their own speed
- A learning solution for students suffering from dyslexia, reading disabilities and sight impairments
- A learning solution for gifted students and special needs students.
- A program aimed at improving children’s reading literacy levels.
- A supplementary tool for ESL and ESOL students learning English as a second language.
As the first on-demand educational video subscription website of it’s kind, Zane Education aims to use the dynamic and more engaging nature of video to provide a compelling alternative to the reliance on more expensive text books, and to support and nurture a learning process that will maintain a students attention over a far longer period of time.
Originally available on a range of 250 PowerCD CD-ROM titles published by their partner Zane Publishing Inc, and widely sold into, and acclaimed, by schools and homeschools across the United States and several other countries, the same K12 content has been converted for online use to make it more widely accessible and to provide a much more cost effective alternative than having to purchase the CD-ROM’s and DVD’s.
A free basic membership offers students unlimited access to a wide range of supplementary K12 learning material as well as use of all the online interactive quizzes, while a choice of a Gold, Silver or Bronze membership options enable users to select their choice of access to all of online videos or alternatively the videos they wish to use either by subject, or by age and grade level.
“Zane’s PowerCD software on CD-ROM and DVD library has become a successful and established brand in the school and homeschool community proving its value over a sustained period of time,” said Nicholas Tee, CEO of Zane Education. “By bringing that curriculum content online in a video format means that we can make it significantly more accessible and at much better prices. In addition to that, reading literacy levels are a growing problem in many countries and we intend to use our unique subtitling feature to address this need, and in so doing, set aside from the few competitors we have in the online video market.”
Zane is now engaged in developing course content and lesson plans that will eventually be provided to subscribing schools, homeschooling families and students to demonstrate and assist them in how to use the subtitling to specifically improve reading literacy levels.
