It's hard to believe but it's true: last week marked more than five years capturing key sessions at Campus Technology's annual conference via Mediasite by Sonic Foundry.
A ton has changed in the world of educational technology in the last 5 years (smart classroom doesn't even show up in Google's world until 2008) and the Campus Technology agendas in the Mediasite catalogs testify to the massive shift.
At InfoComm 2010 we announced our lastest mobile Mediasite Recorder - the new Mediasite ML. As you'll see in this video (embedded below and shot by our friends at rAVe Publications when they visited us), it's a pretty amazing little piece of hardware.

This week Sonic Foundry is en force in Vegas for EduComm June 7-9 and InfoComm June 9-11.
We've got tons going on (you can see some pics here, with more to come).
Timothy Lombardo of Ashland University will present "Enhancing Student Presentations Using Mediasite in the Classroom" on Tuesday, April 13 at 11:10 CDT (convert to your time zone).

It’s a valid question. Why should I care about some awards program Sonic Foundry created to honor its customers? Too inside baseball, right?
Wrong. Here are 5 reasons why I think the finalists of our 2010 Rich Media Impact Awards are definitely worth your attention, even if you aren't, haven't and never will be taking part:
Benefits of System-Wide Lecture Capture: How the University of Tennessee Saved Time, Cut Costs and Increased Service
Back by popular demand, Bob Hillhouse (a favorite at conferences like Chronicle of Higher Education Executive Forum as well as our very own Mediasite User Group meetings), Associate Chief Information Officer at the University of Tenneessee, will present "Benefits of System-Wide Lecture Capture: How the University of Tennessee Saved Time, Cut Costs and Increased Service" on Tuesday, March 2 at 11:00 CST (
Russell Beard, Director of Information and Communication Services at Big Bend Community College, will present on this topic Tuesday, January 26 at 11:00 a.m. Central. Like all our webinars, it is free. Just register before we go live.
How is one of the smallest community colleges in the state of Washington with one of the largest service districts - 4,000 students across 4,500 square miles - finding the money, time and political will to launch new programs at a time like this?
A story on NPR this morning, "Lost King Speech To Be Heard After 50 Years" got me thinking: you may never know just how valuable the presentations you capture will become.
Back in January 1960, Bethel College in Newton, Kansas played host to Martin Luther King Jr. In preparing for the 50th anniversary celebration of that speech, college officials realized they didn't have a copy. No transcript. No audio. Nada.
