Major relaunch for the home of engineering and technology video

Share this on social media:

According to recent research* 90% of respondents believe that video improves the learning experience; 49% estimate that students watch 6-20 education videos each month. Consequently, academics are actively looking for video content that they can use in teaching and training materials and they expect their libraries to offer the broadest range possible.

Those in this field will already know the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET); IET.tv is the Institution’s collection of over 6000 specialised engineering and technology videos. It’s part of the portfolio of authoritative scientific research resources which includes IET Inspec and the IET Digital Library.

Arguably this is the world’s largest archive of such content and the collection is growing at around 1000 new videos a year. Comprised of 14 channels offering technology insights and updates, with fully functioning, highly searchable content across 8 specialist technology channels, IET.tv is a rich source of teaching and coursework materials for lectures.

Available on subscription, exclusively from the IET, IET.tv provides readers and researchers with 24/7 access to specialist content featuring key academics, practising engineers and technologists from around the world. The platform update (due early 2015) will improve the overall look and functionality of what is already an outstanding resource.

FREE trials are available for institutions contacting iettvsales@theiet.org
