I first read the Beloit College Mindset List back in 2003 when I was working on an ad campaign targeted to college students. Every year since, it's become my annual age reality check. [The one that really got me? A classic from the very first Mindset List for the Class of 2002. Number 7. "They have never feared a nuclear war. 'The Day After' is a pill to them—not a movie." Sheesh.]
Here's the first of two webinars coming up on June 25.
Octavio Heredia from Arizona State University will present "Growth Amidst the Drought: Using Webcasting to Increase Enrollment in Challenging Economic Times." As always, this webinar is free and delivered via Mediasite. Simply register before the event at www.sonicfoundry.com/register.
Most universities are presently facing state budget cuts, enrollment caps, new application limits and other restrictions due to the economic landscape.
Here at EduComm 09, we're having all sorts of cool conversations with current customers and those that might become customers. It's a great atmosphere.
It's interesting how the questions are much more refined. People are very specific about what they are seeking and what they need out of a lecture capture solution.
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.
