This week we’re excited to share that our national flipped classroom research, in conjunction with Center for Digital Education, is featured in a Huffington Post piece, “Changing the Role of Classrooms Around the World.” Check out the article here.
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.
First there was lecture capture. A time when professors could record their classrooms without changing the way they taught.
Then came flipped classrooms – the lecture-first, discussion-later response to an increasing demand by students for a more personalized education experience.
Now, for the first time, comes faculty insights into what it takes to deploy this technology-driven pedagogy, which is anything but teaching as usual.
Demand for academic video from the “YouTube generation” of students is growing at an astronomical rate, and universities large and small are evaluating how best to harness the power of video to meet this new level of student expectations and broaden the reach of their institutions. Video is foundational to the cutting edge trends in higher education today, including personalized education, flipped instruction and MOOCs.
Do you have an academic video strategy?
What are the top three uses for corporate video? Poll results from our recent webinar tell us they’re enterprise communication (30%), hybrid events (22%) and online training (22%).
These numbers aren’t surprising. Our customers have been using Mediasite to maximize their communication plans for a while now, and over the years we’ve amassed loads of examples of each of these applications and more.
Gillian Broadhead, director of Learning Light Limited, says “Lots of e-learning projects fail because the people who develop them don’t contact the learner.”
That’s the heart of the fifth and final lesson for you about planning and holding a successful hybrid event based on research from The Meeting Professionals International Foundation’s hybrid event research, sponsored by Sonic Foundry - Design for experience.
The call for nominations for the 2013 RMIA is open once again. Members of the Mediasite user community are invited to nominate organizations that achieved measurable improvements in information accessibility, cost savings, efficiency and productivity through Mediasite. And winners will join the more than 140 people who have been recognized for the past nine years.

Sure, making any sort of financial decision can be tricky, but determining which hybrid event services to use might be trickier than you thought.
From the stage to the screen there are several vendors you need to choose, such as your streaming provider, the platform you use and the production services. As a planner you get quotes from several vendors and they may not seem like they’re apples to apples.
Campus IT priorities are changing — or are they? Clearly campus IT leaders confront significant budget challenges and as well as the growing demand for additional IT resources and services: going mobile, maintaining IT security, supporting online instruction, migrating to cloud computing, enabling lecture capture, and also updating the institutional IT infrastructure.
