Mediasite advocate Gwen Noteborn from Maastricht University in the Netherlands gave a great presentation at FOTE 2013 (Future of Technology in Education) this fall in London. In it, she debunked myths related to using webcasts in education and discussed research and data she collected from real students and teachers.
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.
