“With UppCast we have more facilities to maintain the cost of operation. Long-term training programs, such as management courses for senior executives, required many sessions and could take a year to complete. Some trainees, especially those who traveled frequently, preferred to use mobile devices others worked exclusively with office PCs & Laptops”.
UppCast is a hosted cloud based multi-tenant podcasting platform. UppCast is based on a powerful and modern encoding technology that allows creation of podcast files in several formats to ensure compatibility with all the mobile devices.
Podcasts published on UppCast, are visible on the web, or can be automatically received via iTunes™ by connecting to the dedicated RSS feed for the organization or the podcasting channel.
Public podcasts are also automatically published to the Apple iTunes™ Store, and available for all iTunes™ users.
UppCast features user management within the organizations. Users can be Administrators or content managers. Students and trainees do not need an account to consume the podcasts, all they need is a specific link unique to each Organization using the platform. Podcasts can be embedded into Moodle.
UppCast is built on the Windows Azure cloud. We are constantly working on scalability and security, ensuring all the necessary power is there when you need it. Being the production environment entirely virtualized, we are protected against hardware failures. Our infrastructure has a 99.9% SLA availability and 24h support with record breaking response times.
If you can use email, you can use UppCast. We designed UppCast around the user and the concept, rather than around the technology. Using UppCast is as easy as drinking a coffee. It works on every browser, and does not require any software installation.
Together with each podcast, you will be able to upload documents and/or a link to an online document, for example an online assessment for your students, or downloadable PowerPoint slides. Podcasts can be viewed online, downloaded or synced via iTunes or another podcast receiver.
