RNP offers an integrated service to the development, storage and availability through web of the video lectures produced by the client institutions. Thus, such organizations start to have a tool to access an extensive educational material that can be used as support for distance learning or as classroom lessons reinforcement.

The video class is a content that integrates different types of media - video, audio, script, animations, hyperlinks and supporting files - and is used for educational purposes, as it allows interactivity features and asynchronous navigation. This allows the student to access a video class anywhere and anytime and actively participate in the learning process.

Contents produced by member clients are freely accessible. They can be watched at (in Portuguese).
