Recently, I had the chance to spend a couple days Down Under with an inspiring group of people using video and Mediasite in creative and practical ways. The very first Mediasite Australia/New Zealand Summit brought together more than 50 enthusiastic Mediasite users to share and collaborate around how video is transforming their organizations. With the […]
Mediasite users don’t just talk about their best practices, successes and goals to their colleagues across the hall. On a daily basis, customers worldwide share, connect and learn from each other via the Mediasite Community, a vibrant online group that’s 2,200 members strong and growing. They may be from opposite sides of the world, on separate coasts or just a city away, but they are united by similar questions, experiences and ambitions for their Mediasite video deployments.
With a focus on fostering and deepening these valuable relationships, we’re providing more opportunities for them to interact face-to-face. This year, we hit the road with a series of regional Mediasite Chapter meetings hosted by customers passionate about video and eager to be part of the global Mediasite Community expansion.
Stanford University School of Medicine adopted Mediasite in 2013 for lecture capture and video management. The school had already been recording lectures, but sought to automate the process to more efficiently meet demand. They tested several solutions, and ultimately chose Mediasite because they found it to be, in their words, “the perfect fit.” Watch the […]
More digital educational materials are being created on the 21st century campus than any other time in history. The rising tide of online lectures, textbooks, assignments and discussions has arguably changed education for the better by giving most students more access and control over their learning. But this change has also challenged many universities to […]

One of our most-watched webinars this year features Neil Morris, the architect of the world’s largest, most-automated, integrated lecture capture system. Scratched out with pen and paper during a creative brainstorm a couple years ago, the University of Leeds successfully deployed more than 250 rooms in the fall of 2014. In the first year, they […]
What do you wish you had known as you grew your lecture-capture program from a single building to an entire department, campus or even system? Five years ago, as the University of Colorado at Boulder was planning a lecture capture pilot, Duncan McBogg took a deep-dive and documented everything they would need to consider. Later, […]
When scientists embark on a mission to provide free educational materials on a global scale, video becomes the most critical piece, especially with the Global Educational Outreach for Science Engineering and Technology (GEOSET) initiative. Established in 2006 by the 1996 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Sir Harold Kroto, GEOSET produces educational content for student class projects, […]
