Microsoft has acquired the educational video startup flipgrids. Teachers can teach through this, posting short videos like in social media. From the very beginning, this startup started gaining popularity. Then it was called ‘Vidku’. Its users were increasing at the proportion of 8% every year. Utilizing this successful initiative, Microsoft may regain some of their lost markets in education sector.
It has already been included in Microsoft Office 365 for Education services. There is no need for any additional cost to introduce this service in schools. Those who have already subscribed both Office and Flipgrid will get their money back.
Microsoft is trying to create their own position in schools. Now, let’s see how far they can go.
