About Faculti

About

The Faculti Streaming Platform gives users instant access to thousands of relevant and up-to-date academic and professional research insights annually. Our 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, impartial platform that works with new PhD students through to Nobel Laureates.

*Faculti pronounced exactly the same as the word faculty.

How we select our interviewees

We have a three-pronged approach to covering the 8000 interviews we collaborate with annually. First, we try to cover the most cited research in each subject. Then we try to cover the latest articles in each subject and finally we follow internal usage data and approach interviewees we believe will be a good fit for the platform audience. As we have grown we now also partner with academic publishers (Princeton University Press, Oxford University Press, NYU Press, Edward Elgar etc) who directly suggest interviews to be on the platform, and you can see more of those here.

How to stream Faculti

Guests can watch any Faculti insight for free multiple times and access numerous interviews monthly. 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. Unlike other video platforms that cover research, Faculti does not charge interviewee’s production fees (or any fees) to produce or participate in interviews.

The idea behind Faculti and our history

Founded in 2013 by a former teacher and son of a Professor, who self-financed the platform whilst working full time. Faculti was inspired by the confirmation of the Higgs Boson particle, contacted Particle physicist John Ellis, CERN 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 here.

By 2016, now covering many academic figures monthly, a conversation with the technical team at University of East London led us to develop SSO access for their students. By 2017, Faculti was now producing thousands of insights annually and as staffing, technical and production costs increased we asked universities would they be happy with affordable institutional memberships to support these additional costs. Since 2017, we have offered memberships, in the UK via JISC Collections and internationally through our own Licences and this helps us cover operations and continue to provide the large platform annually.

Testimonials

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 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

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

I’ll be using Faculti insights as online teaching material with my students

What others have said

Faculti is an invaluable resource for students, academics, professionals and general members of the public exploring disciplines and issues. It is also an important platform for researchers to share their ideas and thinking with internal and broader audiences, and for universities to showcase their academic staff and research strengths.

Trevor Marchand, Emeritus Professor, School of Oriental and African Studies

Faculti’s 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

“A nice interview (20 minutes) on the paper on US inflation with Ben Bernanke (nice in the sense of giving me time to say things, rather than the typical 2-minute piece on the radio or tv) ”

Olivier Blanchard, former Chief Economist IMF

“Working with Faculti was a pleasure. The videographer was talented and well-informed, and the interview was painless – even pleasant. I have received nothing but compliments about the video”

Jeffry Frieden, Harvard University

“Had a chance to do an interview with Faculti, and what a fun experience that was – pleasant, professional, efficient. The way research dissemination is supposed to be done.”
Matej Černe, University of Ljubljana
