Each media in Edupool consists of a metadata set (annotations such as title, description, target audience, language, etc.) and the corresponding files (MP4 video, MP3 audio, PDF documents, HTML pages, thumbnails, etc.).
Edupool Publisher is the backend for producers, where media is uploaded, metadata is imported, and licenses are managed. Instead of file uploads, we also provide interfaces to integrate with your existing programs. This is particularly relevant for textbooks and web applications. In all cases, the corresponding media automatically appear in the marketplace.
Edupool Marketplace is the frontend for your customers. Your target audience continues to be media centers of states and districts, as well as teachers and students. This ensures the maximum availability of all educational content for all end customers. In the marketplace, all available media, books, and apps from all providers are equally visible. It is the complete catalog connected to all existing Edupool instances of states and districts. This way, schools in 13 federal states are reached directly.
You can integrate your own webshop with our marketplace via an interface or distribute your media, apps, and books directly through the marketplace. Publishers can decide whether they want to use an automatic licensing process during purchase or if buyers will be prompted to manually enter an activation code. You can also manually enter all media licenses.
As a producer, you have access to comprehensive usage data and can also benefit from customer support provided by Edupool. Billing based on revenue, download traffic, or quantities is subject to individual contractual agreements.
