Last week, Sonic Foundry sponsored the Technology in Business Schools Roundtable (TBSr) 2014 Conference.
TBSr provides opportunities for technology leaders in business schools to share best practices and collaborate with colleagues around the world.

Teikyo University is a private university in the Itabashi ward of Tokyo with four main campuses and enrollment of about 24,000 students. It introduced Mediasite into two campuses in the past two years, and Professor Hiroyoshi Watanabe shared the details of the university’s successful and prolific Mediasite implementation this morning at Unleash 2014, the Mediasite User Conference.
