During our webcast last week, How to Record a High Quality Multimedia Presentation, we covered a number of important concepts necessary to deliver a high quality multimedia experience: clothing, audio, lighting, framing the shot, equipment, etc. Unfortunately, we really didn’t have time to go into all of the Mediasite specifics and how they might impact your webcasts.
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.
I was reminded recently of a huge challenge continuing to brew in the background as we busy ourselves with the economic crisis - the retiring workforce.
Check out the lead in to this article, The Dark Side of the Retirement Bubble by Stephen Xavier over at Chief Learning Officer. (Unless noted, the other quotes are from the same article.)
I was reading an article over at Chief Learning Officer Magazine by Alan Fine called "A Mandate for Coaching." He has some interesting thoughts about what he calls "an inside-out approach" to managing employees. He says that this approach "is about tapping into the performance capacity already inside people." I've always been a fan of that type of management and I appreciated the brief refresher.
