Down with OTT? 3 ways this technology is a new must for education

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:40 am


OTT stands for Over-The-Top technologies, or any technology that aids in the delivery of audio, video and media content via the internet, without requiring users to subscribe to ,or pay for, a traditional cable or satellite pay-TV service like a Comcast or Time Warner Cable. In other words, every device that is internet connection-capable can now be a television equivalent, (i.e. a human-centered and screen-deep learning environment). The internet simply provides manageable access and distribution. Internet-capable devices often harness OTT through apps by third-party interfaces to deliver content. Just a few examples of OTT interfaces are Facebook, YouTube, Hulu, Skype, WhatsApp, and Amazon Video. “Over-The-Top technologies are transforming the nature of how we receive content,” writes Dr. Bernard Luskin, CEO of and former CEO of eight colleges and universities.
