The way the University of Florida addressed lecture capture a decade ago wasn’t uncommon. Each college, department and faculty member had their own system of manually recording and publishing online lectures. Viewing required separate plug-ins for each class. That meant students usually had to review lectures in computer labs instead of their dorm rooms.
Gretchen Kellerstrass, 18, was one of 140 students — only a handful of them female — from 10 Ohio high schools to participate in a dual enrollment program at University of Cincinnati.
“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.”

There is great demand for lecture capture in Norway. Just ask any student and he or she will confirm that. The only problem is many of the smaller colleges and universities can’t afford the technology to make that happen.
But when UNINETT, the network and internet services provider for all Norwegian colleges, universities and research institutions, offered a cost-effective solution, the use of academic video across the country exploded.
Demand for academic video from the “YouTube generation” of students is growing at an astronomical rate, and universities large and small are evaluating how best to harness the power of video to meet this new level of student expectations and broaden the reach of their institutions. Video is foundational to the cutting edge trends in higher education today, including personalized education, flipped instruction and MOOCs.
Do you have an academic video strategy?
It’s day one of a big conference and while most attendees are shaking hands, trading business cards and clamoring for the best seat to catch the opening keynote, there’s a small number of individuals sitting at their office computers sipping coffee and firing up their internet connection.
