Totally Hip Software
has launched a new LiveStage Professional Educational Development Program. The program is designed to assist educators in integrating interactive video authoring with existing core new media programs at a reasonable cost, according to David Gratton, vice president of marketing and sales at Totally Hip.
The LiveStage Professional Educational Development Program consists of a 50-seat site license for US$4,995. Program membership gets you a Certification component that may be added to the site license, complete with course materials and classroom workbooks with supplementary CD-ROMs. Members also get discounts on site license purchases of LiveSlideShow and HipFlics.
Vancouver Film School and Sheridan College, two of the industry’s leading educational facilities, are among the first to collaborate with Totally Hip Software through the LiveStage Professional Educational Development Program.
