Since its inception in 2005, the Rich Media Impact Awards’ mission has been to honor excellence in Mediasite integration into business, education, health and government. Winners and finalists have represented the best examples of how our customers are using video to work, learn and communicate better.
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.

Is the knowledge shared in your classroom important? Your students think so, and you should, too. Student demand for academic video is growing at an astronomical rate, and universities large and small are evaluating how best to harness the power of video to increase student success and classroom efficiency.
In case you missed it, Bob Hoar and Jim Jorstad from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse visited us recently in Madison, Wis. to present a webinar called “Mediasiting Your MOOC: How UW-La Crosse Transformed Online Learning Modules into a Massive Open Online Course.”
Their webinar was one of the most popular presentations we’ve ever hosted, and you can watch it for free on-demand here.

I’ve already heard about a pay-per-access webcast program at Ontario Hospital Association in Toronto, how The University of Auckland, New Zealand keeps its online viewers engaged with social media and how Sandia National Labs in Albuquerque, NM is digitizing and managing thousands of hours of footage to meet national archiving standards. And it’s only 11 a.m.
We’ve had a jam-packed morning and afternoon full of sessions led by staff from Sonic Foundry and our talented customers who are sharing best practices. All morning and afternoon attendees at Unleash have been learning from peers about how to take their Mediasite implementations to the next level.
