11:15  |  Mediasite in Action at Harvard School of Public Health

  • Ian Tosh, Manager of Media & Educational Technology Services

When it comes to capturing video, the School of Public Health is all about efficiency and flexibility. Ian’s team adopted a control room approach to optimize lecture recording workflows and staffing while also deploying a purpose-built Mediasite cart for added mobility. Ian showcases these two recording modalities. Adding to their flexibility, Harvard also uses Mediasite Cloud to store, stream and manage all their content.

  • Michael Fournier, Systems Integration Engineer
  • Jim McKenna, Media Services Manager
  • Sarah Cooper, Applications Administrator
  • Harlan Reiniger, New Media Specialist

Many schools are using video to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of instruction and in some cases help power new pedagogical models.  My Mediasite equips Harvard faculty with the tools to easily record, upload and share video as they flip classes. The School of Medicine highlights how they rolled out My Mediasite, integrated course content into Canvas and the lessons learned along the way.
