The beneficiaries of EduTubePlus project, in which SIVECO Romania is partner, are school students.

Bucharest, 5 October 2009 - Have you thought how attractive would become school courses if subjects taught by teachers should be supported by films?

The EduTubePlus project aims to develop a European hybrid, multilingual video-based service for schools. This service will integrate thousands of multi-lingual curriculum-related video-clips by major European educational TV & video providers, with tools enabling educators to enrich the library with user-generated clips.

The EduTubePlus service will come about as a result of the effective adaptation, extension and integration of existing digital educational video resources and services, robust technical solutions, pedagogical knowledge, best practices and success stories.

An on-line, European multi-lingual video-clip library with 9.000 curriculum-related clips is being created by selecting, from existing educational resources provided by the project partners, core-concept video-clips suitable for in-class use, according to a well-defined video selection strategy.

"The EduTubePlus project facilitates the use and sharing of thousands of digital video school educational resources provided by TV producers or educational TV, but also of video resources generated by students and teachers, in order to meet the needs of learning and innovative practices at school level. We want the undergraduate students receive an electronic attractive tool based on school curricula and educational and scientific requirements," said Delia Oprea, SIVECO Romania Project Coordinator.

The EduTubePlus consortium consists of 17 European organizations and companies: RA.CTI (GR, project coordinator), France5/Lesite.tv (FR), Hellenic Ministry of Education/Educational RadioTelevision (GR), UNED (ES), Companhia de Ideias Anonimas (PT), RAI Radiotelevisione Italiana/RAI Educational (IT), EDUCATION HIGHWAY (AT), EduCentrum (BE), Klett (DE), The University of HULL/Institute For Learning (UK), MENON Network (BE), SIVECO (RO), CEDETEL (ES), ATiT (BE), The University of Jyväskylä (FI), Fondazione Maddalena Di Canossa (IT), SZÁMALK (HU).

The EduTubePlus project is co-funded under the European eContentPlus programme which aims to make digital content in Europe more accessible, usable and exploitable. This 2.5 year long project started in September 2008 and will finish in February 2011.
