Host online meetings, without an external tool,
directly in aNewSpring

As the demand for online training grows, for many educators, the first question is:
“how do we deal with those face-to-face moments that we did offline before?”

Are you a trainer and do you want to use videoconferencing for your course groups?

The aNewSpring platform already has numerous possibilities for bringing classroom training online (partially or fully), and the latest addition is our own video conferencing feature.

It’s easy to use, can be deployed cleverly as a didactical tool and is endlessly flexible.

Learn all about the possibilities or request for this feature directly if you’re a customer.

1. The benefits

Effortless integration into your learning journey

The video conferencing feature is fully integrated into aNewSpring, which makes it simple and seamless when using it as a trainer or a training provider and for your learners. You don’t need an external tool like Zoom or GoToMeeting.

Video conferencing can provide didactical benefits over other (live) online learning methods such as webinars or virtual classrooms.

It’s less complex and can offer more personal interaction or communication.

The videoconferencing feature summed up:

  • The video conference is played directly in aNewSpring and blends smoothly into your learning journey.
  • No other accounts or software are required; participants and supervisors can get started without additional logins.
  • It converts online meetings into an assessment with scoring, register attendance or planning for multiple sessions for working in groups.
  • The number of rooms, participants and sessions are unlimited.
  • Everything takes place in your own learning environment, in your corporate styling and with solid security.

2. Security

Optimal protection because everything takes place within aNewSpring

To prove that your data is safe with us, we’ve implemented an information security management system (ISMS) and we’re ISO 27001 certified.

Keeping your content and course data safe is our highest priority.

  • All of our servers are stored at top-tier data centres in Europe. They are all measured against industry standards and meet certifications such as ISO 27001 (information security management) and ISO 9001 (quality management).
  • The video stream always goes through HTTPS; an SSL certificate is, therefore, a must in order to use the feature.
  • Everything happens within aNewSpring; only participants who already have access to the learning environment can log in. So there is no question of privacy-sensitive meeting IDs or URLs.

“Many customers ask specific questions about the security of our platform. I’m glad they do. It shows they take responsibility for the data of their customers. Many times, security doesn’t get the attention it deserves.”

4. Pricing

There’s no such thing as a free lunch

You’d like to know what it costs? We are open and transparent about our prices. Videoconferencing is charged separately and costs 0,3 cents per participant per minute.

If you are not yet familiar with our license model, you can read more about this on the pricing page. The pricing of videoconferencing usage works as follows:

Let’s say you meet an hour a week with a group of 10 participants as part of your course. Then, you pay 10 x 60 (minutes) x 0,3 euro cents = 1,80 euros per online meeting. You pay €1,80 x 4 meetings per month = 7,20 euros.

If you want to work out for yourself what this looks like for your program, here’s how it goes:
