As we get ready to put on our 3rd annual user conference, I'm working closely with Monty Schmidt, the founder of Sonic Foundry to prepare his keynote presentation. I'm excited about what we're presenting and hopefully what the attendees will walk away with.
Leon Huijbers, Manager of the Campus Congress Centre and Multimedia Department at Technical University of Delft, will present "From Promise to Practice: Proven Strategies to Accelerate Your Campus-Wide Online Learning Initiative," on Tuesday, March 24 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. Central. As always, this webinar is free. Simply register before the event at www.sonicfoundry.com/register.
According to The Senses of Rhetoric blog, Dr. Stanley Katz will lecture at Penn State tomorrow on the Google book scanning project.
His presentation, "Why There's No Free Lunch in Cyberpublishing: Take Two," will be webcasted live via Mediasite as part of the Shifting Ground Series sponsored by Penn State University's Libraries Colloquia Committee.

Sometimes when universities are just starting down the lecture capture path, faculty members voice concerns that the technology will eventually replace them. We've never seen this happen. Mediasite is just the medium. You need the prof for the message.
We get asked a lot if lecture capture affects in-class attendance. The EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research released The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology.
