At ClickView, we believe in using the power of video to transform traditional education. With offices across Australia and the UK, we’re rapidly expanding our reach into schools and higher education settings. We’re on a mission to create meaningful experiences for students at all levels of learning. We encourage deeper understanding through video and thrive on supporting teachers to find great content for their classes and lectures.
ClickView is a world-class company founded in Australia in 2003. We’ve grown in leaps and bounds since our early years.
