No one in the world does automated lecture capture bigger or better than the University of Leeds. Launched in the fall of 2014, the university successfully deployed more than 250 rooms at once. In the first four months alone, they created 16,500 videos that were viewed 185,000 times – and those numbers have been multiplying ever since.
The initiative has catapulted Leeds – chartered in 1904 – into a modern, digital campus, and has had immediate positive impact on teaching and learning.
Join us for a live webinar on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:00AM Central with Neil Morris, the Director of Digital Learning at Leeds, as he takes you through the project, from planning to practice.
How Minnesota Continuing Legal Education Reaches More Learners with Live Online Continuing Education
When Minnesota Continuing Legal Education decided to go online with their courses, they went big. The organization built a state-of-the-art studio and started producing more than 300 live educational webcasts a year. But with high-production demands coupled with state requirements for continuing education, they quickly outgrew their homegrown webcasting system. They needed a flexible, reliable […]
How did a small regional association engage members, create valuable new partnerships and generate new revenue without new staff or fundraising? With live webcasting, that’s how. The Ontario Hospital Association is a provincial non-profit that serves 156 hospitals and over 200 association and affiliate members. They started webcasting back in 2004 with just 5 webcasts, […]
Video is at the heart of every modern teaching and learning approach. Recent research shows more than half of all faculty use video to flip at least part of their classes (Center for Digital Education), and over 7.1 million students are taking at least one online course (Online Learning Consortium). So, since supporting engaging online […]
Ten-minute video lectures when everyone else sets their timers for an hour? Check. Flipping course modules so students learn better? Check. Vying for nationwide title of “Best Lecturer of the Year?” Check. We’ve known for years that Bob van den Brand, Tilburg University’s Associate Professor of Accountancy and Enterprise Video Award alum, has been pushing […]
Sign Up For Live Webinar: The Attendee Journey: Leveraging Technology Before, During And After Your Event
Your attendees embark on a journey the moment they register for an event. And whether that journey is bumpy and rife with confusion or smooth sailing and packed with information depends largely on the event technology plan you’ve put in place to guide them. Is your plan up to the task? Do you trust it […]
It was a conversation topic that ruled the hallowed halls of EDUCAUSE this year, both in sessions and in conversations: successes and challenges when it comes to accessibility. In fact it’s such an important topic we decided to address it in our next webinar, How an Accessibility Strategy Can Unlock the Power of Academic Video. […]
If you’ve used video to challenge the status quo in your organization; if you’ve flipped a class, a training session or a town hall meeting; if you’ve helped your executive team convey important knowledge and information across time and distance; if you’ve created a hybrid event or even if you’ve just launched your video program, chances are we’ll be inspired by what you’ve done.
That’s why we created the Enterprise Video Awards, affectionately known as the EVAs, and we’re now accepting nominations.
When UW-La Crosse saw the analog writing on the wall, it embarked on a multiyear project to transform tens of thousands of hours of video footage into searchable digital files.
In the process they’ve opened hundreds of boxes of film and VCR tapes, and one huge Pandora’s Box of tough questions about video, including: What is fair use? Do different rules apply if it’s for an online course vs. face-to-face? Where will we store it? How will we search it? Will it be secure? Can I still show the video I’ve been using for years? What about copyright?
Here’s a question for you to ponder:
What would be different if your marketing strategy was based on video?
When most marketers hear that they instantly think of highly-produced segments with scripts, actors, music and production schedules worthy of a Super Bowl commercial spot. And there’s a place for that, budget permitting.
