Charles River Media is a leader in working with educational organizations and educational technology companies to provide a wide range of services. From video production and graphics to live streaming to consulting, instruction, and efficacy research, take a look at some of what we do below.
Educational organizations and EdTech companies benefit from our production services. Our producers help craft the vision, directors, cinematographers and editors help implement alongside the rest of our crew whether it’s out in the field or in our studio. We conduct interviews, film products and services used in classrooms and in the field, capture software demos, record lectures and events, and everything in between. Our clients range from universities and schools like MIT to software companies like Labster and the New England Journal of Medicine for its educational software Knowledge+ for medical professionals.
Hundreds of graduation ceremonies. Performances. Pre-Show entertainment with online engagement. We’ve done it all both on-location in auditoriums, theaters, and under tents to in our studio. Graduations for schools as large as Tufts University and as intimate as the Groton School and Newton Country Day School as well as highly produced webcasts for the MIT Sloan Experts series.

Animation and Motion Graphics
For many edtech companies, demonstrating the use of your product and communicating the value and excitement of it is paramount. But nothing kills that excitement more than static screenshots and webex sounding voice over. That’s where our designers, animators, and motion graphics team comes in. We can take those boring screenshots to life or design 3D elements from scratch. Just take a look below at our marquee production for Into Reading for Houghton Mifflin. We’ve also done standalone productions for Pearson Education, Springer,
Consulting and Instruction
Consulting is naturally embedded into all the production work that we do at Charles River Media. And that remains true for our education and edtech clients. We have deep connections with many Boston area universities and organizations including Tufts University where Charles River Media Group Don Schechter serves as a Part-Time Professor of the Practice in the Film and Media Studies Program. He has served as a consultant, lecturer, and part-time professor since 2004.
One of our fastest growing divisions is LXD Research. LXD Research designs and executes studies to provide evidence and insights for educational technology companies to ensure equity in education.
