(Part of an ongoing series featuring Rich Media Impact Awards finalists

What happens when you launch a technology initiative, including online learning, flipped classrooms and web content, at a long standing organization that’s been offering in-person training programs for 40 years? 

It could be a recipe for disaster but if done right, it can also open the doors to a world of opportunities. 

The National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) has successfully opened that door thanks to a new initiative with Mediasite. The organization recharged its educational programs by employing a video strategy that would not only strengthen the workforce and connect learners with other legal professionals, but also give them access to a brand new catalog of courses, all without leaving their desks.

“Our goal is to increase our distance learning capabilities to include even more online programming on different topics,” said Wendy Velez, NITA’s Associate Executive Director of Operations. "Mediasite for me means innovation. It gives us the freedom to try new things and reach more attorneys nationwide. Our online program via Mediasite will only get bigger from here, and we’re looking forward to experimenting with more online courses and webcast series in 2013.”

And join her next week for a live webinar as she shares her roadmap for rolling out online video courses to complement in-person training. It’s Tuesday, April 16 from 1:00 – 1:45 p.m. CT. Register here
