We’re a video learning platform.

Video’s at the heart of the way education is being changed by technology. This holds true for educational institutions and those who are simply curious about life.

But we think education is under-served by video technology. High quality videos are hard to find while lots of dross is pretty easy to stumble into. And searching for the pearls amid the clutter is time consuming.

In short: we think the world where video meets education “could try harder”… as your old school report used to say.

We believe Mobento can help by organizing content better, being brutal in quality control, and being top of the class in innovation.

Here’s what we bring:

1) Comprehensive – Mobento video will be a one-stop hub for learning videos.

2) Quality – This is a library and a library has librarians. That’s us. We’ll be rigorous in only uploading high quality, fascinating videos from established academic institutions and learning organizations. For example when we launched on day one we only had 200 videos. Not many by You Tube standards but it delivers about 150 hours sourced from some of the finest speakers at Stanford, Yale, Khan Academy and TED. At Mobento, less is more.

3) Mobento Search – Since we’re bringing together such a wonderful collection of video content we owe it to our users and speakers to make it properly searchable. But searching video the way we wanted to simply didn’t exist. So we figured out how to make it exist. We think you’ll like it. Mobento Search instantly searches the entire video library for the words that were actually spoken. We’re very proud of this. In fact it’s hard to believe that this won’t be the standard way of searching ALL videos within the next ten years.
