Start Robot Setup Here(CX Series)
Swivl is an innovative video collaboration system that allows educators to record a variety of videos for professional development, flipped classrooms, and teacher or student observations. The Teams by Swivl platform offers secured sharing, video analysis tools such as time stamped commenting, bookmarking, and rubrics, and editing capabilities that help educators to build best practice video libraries.
It's also a great way to connect with remote students during hybrid and distance learning because the Swivl robot tracks the teacher and captures teacher and student voices during a live streamed session and is compatible with a variety of live streaming applications. Further, the teacher can hear remote students through flexible audio setups that any classroom is equipped to handle.
If you're not planning to be a direct user of Swivl's system, but are responsible for inventory, logistics, or are the owner of a Swivl Team, please Access our Swivl Logistics Toolkit
