At ClickView we strive to transform teaching and learning experiences globally. We do this by:
- Empowering educators with the best of technology; and
- Enriching the education of future generations through world-leading video content.
With teams across the UK, the US and Australia, we’re proud to support over 4,900 schools, colleges and universities around the world.
ClickView was founded in 2003 and we’ve grown in leaps and bounds since our early years. We now have more than 80 staff worldwide working to make a positive impact on the education of future generations. Here’s how we evolved from a tech start-up into a world-leading content producer of curriculum-aligned video titles for educators and students.
The story begins
ClickView is founded in 2003 by Evan Clark, Tim Power and Matthew Sandblom, representing a whole new way for teachers to engage with students, especially digital natives. ClickView operates as an on-premise streaming solution for schools and needs a software install and a server.
Internet speeds are a fraction of today’s and DVDs are common technology, especially in education settings. The vision of ClickView takes shape around the forward-thinking belief that digital video will fast become the future, long before streaming services like YouTube exist.
The ClickView platform is an instant hit, removing the need for teachers to borrow DVD or VHS videos. Everything is suddenly available on computers and in the classroom.
ClickView are the exclusive distributors of VEA/ Classroom Video/ Learning Essential content in digital format.
