Educators can now access premium video through Alamy
Alamy, PA Media Group’s stock image business has partnered with Pond5 to provide over 6 million premium videos for education and creative customers around the world.
In 2016, the Universal Journal of Educational Research found that using videos or multimedia materials in education increases learning . Five years later, the technology used to create and edit these videos has improved so much, we now see movie quality videos offered on websites like Alamy, making them easily accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
Emily Shelley, Managing Director at Alamy, said: “Our collection of videos mostly depicts authentic and diverse real-life stories, real-life people, and real-life scenes which can help students get energized and engaged about new topics when learning in schools and other institutes.
“We already have lots of education clients using our stock images in classrooms, so we look forward to providing high-quality video content too.”
With over 6 million videos to choose from, Alamy has acquired high-calibre compelling content from Pond5’s video collection, meaning customers can choose from a wide selection of royalty-free videos.
The company has already been commended by clients like Pearson, with Claire Bowers, Rights Manager at Pearson English & Global Schools saying, “Alamy has a wide range of images and clips. There is a person to chat to about projects if you need, which feels like a luxury these days, and they are.’’
Alamy, which officially launches its new video offering on its website on 2 August, has more than 100,000 customers across 150 countries. Pond5 joins other premium providers on the platform, including Reuters, EyeEm, The Independent and Alamy’s parent company, PA Media Group.
