VideoSearch for Educators

Online videos can be an indispensable educational tool. But keeping track of media can feel like a full time job. That's where we come in. VideoSearch from Microsearch lets you collect all your videos into one searchable library and publish it on a personalized website. No more sending students to YouTube, where distractions abound.

DocumentSearch for Educators

Teachers used to compile readings into course packets, copies of essays and articles stapled together and distributed to students. But today, students are comfortable reading online. DocumentSearch by Microsearch helps you collect those course materials into an online, searchable library that can be organized in a way that makes sense for your course.

Online Libraries for Educators

Whether your course materials include documents, videos, or a mix of both, online, searchable libraries for your courses means all those resources can be found by your students in one place, away from the distractions of the web at large. Our Table of Contents feature means your materials can be organized in a way that makes sense for you. And, of course, it's all fully searchable.

Teacher Association Services

Some of the most highly successful Teacher Associations in American utilize Microsearch’s online electronic document search and access service for providing users fast, efficient document access. Both NEA and AFT, as well as over 30 Teacher Associations are clients of Microsearch.

Teacher Associations of teachers that teach most of America’s children are Microsearch clients. In fact, Microsearch client Teacher Associations teach over 70% of America’s children. Teacher Associations of the following states utilize Microsearch electronic Document Search and Access services:

Electronic Document Search and Access Site

Microsearch has been working with Teacher Association clients for over a decade, helping increase information efficiency and usefulness. Microsearch increases document efficiency by converting information traditionally available only in paper format, such as Contracts and Arbitration Results, into fully searchable electronic document, image, and metadata web sites accessible to every authenticated member of the Teacher Association.

Teacher Association Contracts

By converting important documents such as Teacher Association Contracts into electronic media that can be indexed to enable fast search and retrieval, our Teacher Association clients have faster, more complete access to all the information in all their contracts. By then converting the database into a web-based site, Document Search and Access can be provided across the country to any authenticated user with Internet access.

Complete Solution

Microsearch provides a complete solution for creating an electronic Document Search and Access site for Teacher Association contracts. Starting with boxes of paper documents or downloaded existing electronic files from the Teacher Association, Microsearch will produce within weeks a complete, searchable web site that contains all Teacher Association documents, now searchable and downloadable in a new electronic format.

Microsearch Digitization Center

The Microsearch Digitization Center can create digital versions of all paper-based contracts; it will also convert existing electronic versions of documents into appropriate formats for inclusion in the site. Then, with information provided by client Teacher Associations, we associate identifying information (meta-data)to the original electronic document. Meta-data or information about Teacher Association documents such as Expiration Date, Municipality, and Type is associated with each contract, and provides searchable information to enable advanced search capabilities in the site, making it easier to find just the right contract with the sought after information.

Index Services

After digitizing the documents, Microsearch indexes those new electronic documents and associated meta-data, identifying the page location of every single word in the documents and meta-data. Microsearch then puts the new electronic documents and meta-data into a database with an easy-to-use Table of Contents. The Table of Contents lists in nested folders every document in the Archive and Access site. Once indexed, the content of Teacher Association documents is fully searchable, with both a General Search and an Advanced Search interface available in the Document Search and Access web site.

Finally, Microsearch creates and hosts online the Teacher Association Document Search and Access web site that is customized to match the Union branding with an easy to use interface. This site can then be a linked within the Teacher Association main web site.

Search is Free

Microsearch does not charge Teacher Association clients for user search or download services. Every Document Search and Access web site provides unlimited , free searching, and free, unlimited downloading of documents to authenticated users.

Authenticating Users

Every client Teacher Association receives as part of the Microsearch service an online utility through which it adds or deletes authenticated users. Teacher Association administrators are able to grant the authenticating username and password combinations online directly from the utility provided by Microsearch.
