Enterprises and classrooms pushed rich video to the forefront of their tech plans last year, and Mediasite was at the center of it all.
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.
It’s easy to picture a traditional classroom — a lecturing professor with rows of students watching, listening and taking notes.
But that age-old model is turning a cartwheel in some of the best classrooms in academia, and chances are someone in your department is already flipping their classroom.
Since we launched it in 2007, we’ve hosted 199 webinars in our Mediasite webinar program, have garnered 150,872 all-time views and have shared a lot of video knowledge.
This year was our most-watched yet, with 18,372 people tuning in for 16 webinars focusing on what you need to know to stay competitive with your video strategy. Corporate communications? Covered. New technology-driven pedagogies or campus-wide capture solutions? Done. How to prepare for the BYOD revolution? Solved. And there’s more. Much, much more.

“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.
