What kind of data should the tool work with?

There is an unlimited number of videos, PDFs, etc. that can be used for education, training, instruction, or professional development.

Finding and curating them into playlists, integrating with existing workflow, and sharing with others is time consuming, inefficient, and often limited by ‘vendor lock-in.’

Media Share is a productivity tool that saves time, requires no training to use, and does not limit how or where content can be used.
