For the first time in our history of doing webinars, Sean Brown moves from moderator to speaker to present "5 Secrets to Funding Lecture Capture" on Tuesday, June 22, 2010 at 11:00 a.m. CDT (time zone converter). As always, it's free. Just register here before we go live.

While university budgets globally wither, spending on educational technology is alive and well. From IT teams to instructional technologists, academic staff are disproportionately successful at garnering funds for lecture capture initiatives amidst an overall environment of financial cuts.

Want to know why? And how these colleges are doing it?

Don't miss this brief opportunity for live Q&A with Sean Brown, Vice President of Education at Sonic Foundry. In the last eight years, Sean has been involved in successfully introducing lecture capture at over 500 colleges and universities. In this webinar, he'll present evidence that collectively, when it comes to what department gets which resources, Mediasite initiatives continue to attract attention and funding right now.

Sean will discuss:

  • Why lecture capture technology funding is currently easier to secure than other campus initiatives
  • Real-life examples of universities who exploited federal, state, private and corporate funding sources to rapidly scale online, blended and distance learning
  • Tips for being competitive - and collaborative - in understanding where the money comes from
  • Tools to streamline the process of both identifying financial resources and justifying their application to your lecture capture pilot
