LG Electronics technicians are always on the go. Their time is precious and they can’t take hours out of their day to attend training sessions. They need the information fast and when it’s convenient for them.
Since we launched it in 2007, we’ve hosted 199 webinars in our Mediasite webinar program, have garnered 150,872 all-time views and have shared a lot of video knowledge.
This year was our most-watched yet, with 18,372 people tuning in for 16 webinars focusing on what you need to know to stay competitive with your video strategy. Corporate communications? Covered. New technology-driven pedagogies or campus-wide capture solutions? Done. How to prepare for the BYOD revolution? Solved. And there’s more. Much, much more.
Mediasite advocate Gwen Noteborn from Maastricht University in the Netherlands gave a great presentation at FOTE 2013 (Future of Technology in Education) this fall in London. In it, she debunked myths related to using webcasts in education and discussed research and data she collected from real students and teachers.
“At Alliance Benefit Group Financial Services we utilize Mediasite to help explain benefits to plan participants and to sell and market our services. It’s a very complex subject matter. We’ve had good feedback in the use of video to simplify that approach and deliver that complex message.”

Michigan Virtual University is helping respond to a huge need in Nigeria: online learning.
There are about 12 million annual applicants to 104 tertiary institutions in Nigeria and yet only about 300,000 people are admitted into universities each year. The quest for education by employed individuals looking to further their education without having to leave their jobs is huge, and e-learning is the only affordable approach to meet the demand for education in Nigeria and other countries on the continent.
