Inspiration

Post covid all of the institutions shifted to online education. Having thousands of recorded lectures videos at the end of the semester made it difficult for students to be productive. To tackle this issue HelloEdu is a tool to skip through various videos based on its content. HelloEdu is a fast and powerful application that reduces a long, archived video into a short, manageable summary. It also helps you to skip the video to the desired point in time for a better educational experience.

What it does

  • HelloEdu basically processes videos for the important topics and generates timestamps for the same. Thus saving time for a student who has to search through hundreds of materials by producing exact results of the topic they wants to look at.
  • Summarize items from Blogs, Podcasts, Lectures and other educational material.
  • High accuracy AI generated summaries.
  • Skip over unwanted content to parts that you want to!
  • Download Transcript and Summary for future reference
