The Faculti Platform is an important reference tool which gives users instant access to relevant and up-to-date academic and professional research insights. This continually expanding media library of news, analysis, facts and figures includes insights from The United Nations, the British Parliament, the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve, Harvard University, Stanford University, University of Oxford, University of Cambridge and academic and research institutions worldwide. The Faculti audience is predominantly the higher education, academic and research community, but also associated professional organisations such as financial institutions, policy organisations, think tanks, hospitals and schools. Faculti is an inclusive platform that works with new PhD students through to Nobel Laureates.
How Faculti Works
Watch or listen to Faculti on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Enjoy great video and audio streamed insights in high definition and with excellent sound. Each academic year, thousands of new insights are produced from across the world’s leading institutions. Universities support course and online delivery with the Faculti archive, and figures embed their interviews on their homepages and VLE’s.
Guests can watch any Faculti insight for free multiple times and access numerous interviews daily. Register for a free basic membership and get extensive access to selected audio and video. Upgrade to our subject memberships and unlimited access across one subject or the entire platform – as often as you like, on the device of your choice.
Unlike other platforms that cover research, Faculti does not charge interviewee’s production fees (or any fees) to participate in interviews.
Founded by a former school teacher and inspired by the confirmation of the Higgs Boson particle in 2013, Faculti contacted Professor John Ellis, CERN and Kings College London, about making a short interview of the ground breaking news. The aim was that the interview would be shot as is (without journalistic input or losing its academic weight) rather letting the figures speak for themselves with only minor aesthetic editing. Professor Ellis’ enthusiasm and support led to the first Faculti interview. Eight years on, Faculti now has a vast archive of over 4000 insights, and produces thousands of new insights annually.
As the platform and operations have grown from 100 insights a year to 8000, Faculti has remained financially independent. Initially our founder financed the platform, but now to cover increased staffing, technical and production costs we have to offer memberships. We do not attach ourselves to any political party.
Faculti’s aim is to communicate research in a way that is accessible to the wider public. The videos are professionally made and the participants present their ideas clearly in an unadorned, simple way, largely relying on direct, to camera communication, without any other audiovisual aids. A simple idea, well executed.British Universities Film and Video Council
The Faculti team has produced informative, accessible insights that convey substance without being overbearing. Viewers can be spurred either to find out more or to come away satisfied with a modicum of new, valuable knowledge.Susan Sugarman, Princeton University
Faculti is great for accessing new, cutting edge content from across the spectrum. It is a brilliant research and knowledge exchange platform and brings key stakeholders together – policymakers, academics, professionals, students and importantly the public for maximum impact.John Hemming, Member of British Parliament
Faculti is an invaluable resource for students and general members of the public exploring disciplines and issues. They are also important for researchers to share their ideas and thinking with broader audiences, and for universities to showcase their academic staff and research strengths.Trevor Marchand, Emeritus Professor of Social Anthropology, School of Oriental and African Studies
Faculti creates a deeper understanding of research, including inter-disciplinary studies, because the visual impact is important and it cross-cuts with other debates making it inter-disciplinary. Students will appreciate the succinct summaries presented and the importance of the subject matter communicated.Satvinder Juss, Professor of Law at King’s College London, UK and a Barrister-at-Law of Gray’s Inn, London, UK
Working with Faculti was a pleasure. The videographer was talented and well-informed, and the interview was painless – even pleasant. The Faculti staff quickly prepared and presented the video clip on the Faculti website, and did an excellent job with it. I have received nothing but compliments about the video, and look forward to working with Faculti again.Jeffry Frieden, Harvard University
I teach history, and assign my students chapters from McCormick’s Origins of the European Economy. I found the McCormick video – and we watched it in class in conjunction with the reading.Laura E. Wangerin, Seton Hall University
