macProVideo.com acquires AskVideo.com – Two Pioneers of Online Education Unite

AskVideo

macProVideo.com has announced it has purchased AskVideo.com, an online software training website.

The deal includes AskVideo.com’s full catalogue, brand, and other operational assets.

macProVideo.com was founded in February of 2005 to produce and distribute online training for Apple software applications like Logic, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, and GarageBand. The company’s library quickly expanded to include training for over 40 different software applications, including Photoshop and the Adobe CS Suite, Microsoft Office, and all major audio applications from Ableton Live to Propellerhead Reason. Their training catalogue currently boasts over 1200 hours of online software courses and more than 22,000 tutorial-videos.

According to macProVideo.com’s Founder and CEO, Martin Sitter, “Until now, macProVideo.com has been the place ‘Where Mac Users Learn.’ With the acquisition of AskVideo.com, we have purchased a great brand with over 8 years of experience in online training. AskVideo will become our primary portal for bringing our trademarked NonLinear Educating System™ to the larger world of Windows PC users.”

The NonLinear Educating System features HD tutorial-videos that play in web browsers, on desktops, and through iOS devices. There are also advanced search features that make it easy to find topics of interest, as well as tools for bookmarking videos, taking notes, and progress tracking that displays the viewer’s progress through each online course.

Users can watch free courses by creating an AskVideo.com account, or gain access to the entire AskVideo Library by purchasing a Library Pass. Educational and corporate site licenses are available for universities and companies that need to train students/staff on the use of creative software applications for audio engineering, video editing, web design, and the graphic arts.

“We are particularly excited about the potential AskVideo has for the wider corporate and educational markets,” continues Martin. “Our full-featured site licensing system is not only cost-effective, but also provides teachers and administrators with full analytics so they can see what their students and staff are watching, and when they watched it. With our excellent support for iOS, students and staff can watch titles on their iPad or iPhone while commuting, at lunch, or any other time that’s convenient. This is true NonLinear Educating.”

Shure and Guitar Center Studios Give Musicians Room(s) to Rock

Funding for school music programs is disappearing nationwide, but there’s no shortage of people with a burning desire to sing or play an instrument. Recognizing a need for education, rehearsal, and recording facilities, microphone manufacturer Shure Incorporated is providing microphones and headphones to the growing list of Guitar Center Studios, as the music retailer expands its music education facilities in the U.S.

Guitar Center Studios

“Music education programs are disappearing from public schools, and individual lesson providers are challenged to deliver a broad offering of learning opportunities and tools,” says Tom Hemphill, Director of Guitar Center Studios. To counter this trend, Guitar Center Studios has taken the fundamental elements of music education—learning to play, connecting with peers, rehearsing together, and recording—and made them the cornerstones of a progressive learning pedagogy.

“Guitar Center Studios not only provides best-in-class music education, but a wide range of opportunities to apply that education,” Hemphill continues. “We serve as a community where musicians can learn, meet, rehearse, and record using professional equipment.” The facilities use a subscription model under which students can take advantage of any or all of these resources for one price.

In addition to providing music lessons and training in Pro Tools and Logic software, the program encourages musicians to get together, rehearse, and record themselves. Having access to professional-caliber equipment is a key component of this part of the program, and Shure has outfitted every Guitar Center Studios facility with SM58® handheld microphones, MX395 low-profile microphones and SRH240 professional headphones. “Shure has been a tireless supporter of what we’re doing, and we’re grateful,” says Hemphill. The microphones and headphones enable performances to be recorded easily, allowing musicians to review their performances and identify areas for improvement. “You can walk in, rehearse, and walk out with a CD that you can learn from,” says Hemphill.

“The Guitar Center brand is known and respected by musicians at every level, from beginners to working professionals,” says Abby Kaplan, Sales Director, Western U.S., at Shure Incorporated. “We’re proud to partner with Guitar Center Studios to help develop the next generation of performers.”
