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.
As a Media Manager, I can perform sentiment analysis, comparing coverage across multiple news networks to determine media bias with unparalleled speed, accuracy, and detail, sharing video compilations with students as research evidence, so as to provide students a real-world learning experience.

As a MOOC Course Designer, I can provide tailored video playlists to support formal, informal, undergraduate, and postgraduate course offerings to build reach and student engagement.
As a Video Content Manager, I can curate video archives to produce playlists that feature specific themes, concepts, and anniversaries, enhancing the value and accessibility of vast video archives.
As a Campus Analyst, I can access real-time analytics reports (Google Analytics API and native Linius data) on usage, playlist creation, metadata, and the most popular videos and playlists, to obtain insights into student engagement, learning, and course pedagogies.
As Provost, I can enable course designers and managers to curate prescribed instructional video content and provide students the agency to search, curate, and share their own video playlists to strengthen their research skills and assignment work.
As a Digital Learning Leader, I can ascertain the most valuable videos and the elements of the most valuable videos at a frame level, per lecture, unit, course, faculty, and/or overall. I can drive students to targeted video content at multiple instances of learning — core instruction, research skills development, student discussion and exposition, personalised learning, and intervention.
As a Business Manager, I can work with the Linius team to enable video search within a faculty/subject or across the data lake of several or all faculties, to maximise the utility of our institution's video estate.

Ken, and they, can now breathe a little easier.
