Enterprises and classrooms pushed rich video to the forefront of their tech plans last year, and Mediasite was at the center of it all.
First there was lecture capture. A time when professors could record their classrooms without changing the way they taught.
Then came flipped classrooms – the lecture-first, discussion-later response to an increasing demand by students for a more personalized education experience.
Now, for the first time, comes faculty insights into what it takes to deploy this technology-driven pedagogy, which is anything but teaching as usual.
We’re excited to announce that Streaming Media Magazine editors recognize Sonic Foundry as one of the most important companies in online video.
Today the magazine unveiled its ‘Streaming Media 100,’ the third annual list that names the 100 companies that have the greatest impact on the streaming media industry. We are honored to have been included on this list all three years.
"Mediasite has proven to be the best capture system there is, as it increases teaching and communication quality. Students can review any lecture on-demand; watching a live lecture still feels personal because they are able to ask questions, participate in polls, and see and hear the lecturer and supporting teaching materials."
~Thorleif Hallen, senior advisor at UNINETT, as quoted in AV Technology Magazine
By now you may have heard about Bob van den Brand, an adjunct associated professor from Tilburg School of Economics and Management in the Netherlands. He’s using Mediasite in creative ways to get through to his tech-minded students in short 10-minute lectures.
Bob’s been recognized countless times for his fantastic lecture capture program, iSTAR Learning Project, which has dramatically increased the pass rates and satisfaction ratings among the second-year accounting students.
“There is a general consensus that Mediasite really is an effective way to share the information. They get a more engaged experience that helps them to better take in and retain the information.” ~ Scott MacGougan, Russell Investments
Scott is one of the longest users of our Mediasite webcasting platform, overseeing digital media production at this global firm in Seattle, Wash. He’s responsible for recording, editing and producing audio-video webcasts for both internal and external audiences.
“The Mediasite Desktop Recorder will be easier for us to maintain than other software-based options. The app is just so easy to use, I know even our most tech-challenged staff are going to quickly adopt it. And because it’s a web client, our user-generated content will automatically upload to our Mediasite EX management platform.” ~Brian Smith, IT Specialist, University of Florida
In case you missed it, this week we announced some pretty significant enhancements to our Mediasite EX video content management system with the 6.1 family of features.
