If you attended UBTech last week in Orlando, Fla., we hope you had a chance to stop by our booth to find out what’s new with Mediasite.
In case you missed us or weren’t able to attend the show, here’s a recap of our whirlwind week. Stick with us to the end – we have a lot of good stuff tell you!
1. We were honored to be the Titanium Sponsor of this annual conference on higher education technology leadership, and we also provided streaming services. This was the 14th consecutive year Mediasite delivered an interactive UBTech hybrid event.
Thanks to our Mediasite Events team, all keynotes, general and breakout sessions are now available on demand to the public via Mediasite Showcase, an interactive video portal to curate, spotlight and view live and on-demand content. You can watch everything for free via Mediasite at https://ubtech.mediasite.com/mediasite/Showcase/ubtech17.
2. Our very own Elizabeth Collins, Senior VP, moderated “Rapid Fire Panel: Academic Video’s Impact on Learning,” featuring Mediasite rockstars Steve Acquah of Florida State University, Ralph Welsh of Clemson University and Megan and John Mocko of University of Florida. You can watch the session on-demand for free here.
3. Those weren’t the only Mediasite users at the mic. Ian Wilkinson of Texas Tech University presented “Lecture Capture, Instructional Video, Accessibility & Lessons Learned.” Wilkinson and his colleague Jackie Luft also presented “A Blueprint for Creating Effective and Accessible Instructional Video.” It’s worth watching their encore webinar, The Three P’s of Accessibility. Watch it here.
4. Check out this video of Kristin Zurovitch, our Director of Marketing, talking to rAVe about Mediasite in education.
5. We announced at the show that Western New Mexico University is using Mediasite Join to transform its distance learning program. WNMU has several rural satellite campuses for a distributed student body, so it relies heavily on video and web conferencing for instruction. The university chose Mediasite Join, a video conference capture solution, to cost-effectively connect its instructors and students in real time, capturing collaborative classrooms and turning them into rich searchable video on-demand.
April Hanson, Video Communications Manager at WNMU IT said: “We are already paying a lot of money for our video conferencing systems, and I needed a way to leverage what we already had. Being able to plug in Polycom and Zoom into our existing Mediasite Video Platform was huge.”
