The Future of Technology in Education (FOTE) conference in London, England always sells out fast to IT directors and managers, learning technologists, practitioners and anyone else interested in educational technology.
If you take away just one thing from the recent study on hybrid events from Sonic Foundry and Meeting Professionals International Foundation, make it this:
While 50% of planners surveyed said cannibalization is a top concern in their organization, 88% of planners who have done hybrid meetings say there’s been NO negative impact on onsite attendance. In fact, many say it even boosts onsite attendance. That’s HUGE!
“Content is what gets people through the door, engagement is what keeps them there and makes them come back for more.”
Those are wise words from Emilie Barta, hybrid event consultant and virtual event host, who was surveyed in a new hybrid research project, released this week by Meeting Professionals International Foundation and sponsored by Mediasite Events by Sonic Foundry.
This just in:
93% of planners who organized a hybrid event say it met or exceeded their objectives, and 70% of planners say hybrid meetings will be an important part of the events industry in the future.
16 live streams.
That’s the super jam-packed schedule for Night of Science, which took place June 22 at Goethe-University in Frankfurt, Germany. And thanks to Mediasite’s live webcasting capabilities, anyone anywhere in the world could watch in real time or on-demand.
What do all engineering courses have in common? Complex equations and highly technical content.
For complicated courses on your campus especially, lecture capture can be a lifesaver. Your students can go back and review as much as they need to in order to understand the content. And their e-learning experience is even more valuable when that recording is in high-definition so that every single annotation made by their professor during class is crystal clear.
The Sonic Foundry crew is descending onVegas this week for UBTech (formerly EduComm) June 11-13 and InfoComm June 9-15, and we’ve got a ton of new announcements in store for you.
Come by and say hi at UBTech booth #301 and InfoComm booth #C9141 and check out our new Mediasite features.
