What is URcast?
URcast is a content distribution application for the K-12 classroom that customizes today’s most effective software features for education. URcast integrates caching, automatic downloading, and scheduled broadcasting – the same technologies used by Netflix, Google, iTunes, Instagram and TV networks – into an educator controlled school network supplement that:
- saves classroom time
- extends current network life
- effectively increases bandwidth
- increases content delivery reliability
- provides the digital infrastructure to make the 1:1 transition
- provides student equality to content access in 1:1 environments outside the school

What Teachers Say
“The speed of URcast is significantly faster.
The longest part of the process is having
the students turn-on the tablets (URcast from
the student point of view is almost instant).”
— High School Teacher
“Access without internet- I absolutely
LOVE that my students don't need internet
access at home to get to the resources they need.”
— 6th Grade Teacher

“I don't have internet at home right now and
every time I don't finish the videos during class
I can look at them without even using the internet.”
