Case Study: Video site launch for agricultural community
Adaptive have been working with the team at Access Agriculture to build and launch a new video sharing community, AgTube.
The new social media platform is targeted at rural people in developing countries as well as others around the world with an interest in sustainable agriculture.
Visitors to the site can explore a wealth of video resources related to agricultural matters and can also upload and share their own video clips in any language.
The site integrates with third-party media service, Mediacore, to handle the uploading and streaming of the video content on the site. This is done seamlessly via custom Drupal modules integrating into the Mediacore APIs, ensuring that the process of uploading content to the site is quick and straight-forward for users.
The site also features multi-lingual capabilities and attractive visual navigation.
Visit the site at www.agtube.org. The site is an initiative of Access Agriculture, an international NGO that encourages the use of training videos to help rural businesses to improve their profits and livelihoods. Read more about them here.
