Enrich the learning experience and drive greater student satisfaction and graduation rates.​

Linius' technology is a game-changer for student-centric universities and K-12 educators striving to deliver a more personalized style of teaching, that enriches both teaching and learning experience, and drives greater satisfaction for students. It’s all made possible with Whizzard. 

Whizzard allows educators and students to search down to the millisecond for what was said and seen in recorded video lessons and discipline-related video libraries, to then quickly compile video snippets into new playlists to review, prepare for assessments, and share. Whizzard supports student assessment, research, investigation, ideas integration, and revision.
