General

What is Mobento?

Mobento is a video learning platform turbo-charged by a “spoken word” search. We recognized that if we were going to offer a single “go to” source of great videos for our users we would only have done half the job if searching took forever. So we invented a better search.


What is Mobento’s vision?

It believes that technology can and should serve education better than it does. We have taken a big step forward by creating a centralized repository for excellent video content and enabling instant and powerful search technology that enables users to find what they want in seconds.


How many videos does Mobento have?

When we launched on day one we only had 200 videos. Not many by You Tube standards but that delivers about 250 hours sourced from some of the finest speakers at Stanford, Yale, Khan Academy and TED. At Mobento, less is more. This number will continue to grow as quickly as possible.


Where does Mobento get its videos from?

At the moment we are getting our videos from some of the finest institutions, educators and speakers in the world. We are looking to grow our content by adding more fantastic institutions to our list of videos.

How does search work?

Mobento searches both the words that were spoken in a video and all the meta data that goes with it such as title, description, organization.


What are the benefits of signing-up?
