No one in the world does automated lecture capture bigger or better than the University of Leeds. Launched in the fall of 2014, the university successfully deployed more than 250 rooms at once. In the first four months alone, they created 16,500 videos that were viewed 185,000 times – and those numbers have been multiplying ever since.
The initiative has catapulted Leeds – chartered in 1904 – into a modern, digital campus, and has had immediate positive impact on teaching and learning.
Join us for a live webinar on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:00AM Central with Neil Morris, the Director of Digital Learning at Leeds, as he takes you through the project, from planning to practice.

When the college class of 2018, born in 1996, arrives on campus in the coming days, their world view will be quite distinct from their professors. For example:
Imagine finding yourself on an elevator with the famous founder of your company. Do you smile politely and ride it out? Or do you seize the opportunity and pitch him the big idea you’ve been working on?
If you’re Lawrence Grafton you do the latter. He pitched Michael Dell himself on an enterprise video initiative that would unify corporate messaging to more than 100,000 Dell employees and ensure that everyone, no matter where they are in the world, is speaking the same language.
Could your executive communications and training use a little more pep? Are the customers you’re trying to reach bored by your approach? Does your ho-hum corporate holiday greeting go straight into the recycling bin?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, fear not. The marketing and communications team at Alliance Benefit Group will show you how to inject some life into your corporate video strategy in a free webinar on Tuesday, September 17, from 1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. (You can register here.)

Video is foundational to the cutting edge trends in higher education today, including personalized education, flipped instruction and MOOCs.
