Center for the Advancement of Research Methods and Analysys began using Mediasite for its live and archived webcasts, enriching the experience for the viewer by allowing them to see more information in a higher quality stream but also allowing the viewer to control their experience.
In 2005 ULCC started offering a hosted virtual learning environment (for UK universities). Mediasite for us fits into the learning and teaching department we are running. You have reduced expenditures of hardware. We have the racks and the infrastructure. You share expertise. You have reduced support and maintenance costs and released funds can benefit students.
Mediasite has helped expand our education across campus. I’ve seen a 50% increase in number of courses I can offer with this new methodology. Student satisfaction remains high as Mediasite promotes an engaged learning experience and is meeting the interest of a new generation of learner.
As of June 2012, the university would move to a different lecture capture system. The students requested the ability to download. They wanted to be able to view the stream at double speed, have flexibility in viewing screens and they wanted a catalog of all their videos. Faculty wanted a system that was searchable, sharable and easy to learn. The only lecture capture system that fit the bill was of course Mediasite.
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.
Students at San Antonio College in Texas are happier and more successful now that they’ve got their hands on lecture capture technology.
Four professors tested out Mediasite in their classrooms during a pilot program, and student response was unanimous. Students said:
It looks like a scene from ER. Nurses are steadfastly servicing seven hospital rooms, four exam rooms, three debriefing rooms and a home healthcare lab, equipped with 30 beds and medical charting stations. Patients are going through a range of health crises from convulsions to heart attacks, and machines beep and buzz as they monitor vital signs.
There will be night classes catored toward people who are working all day and want to pick up another degree. If they're working eight hours or more it's difficult for them to get to campus, so a lot of people will watch those lectures live at home. For students who attend classes ... it's a useful review tool.
We live in an era where video is being live-streamed, recorded and is rapidly becoming our primary source for learning something new. Leading corporations and education institutions have amazing opportunities to harness the power of video to advance their message, improve collaboration, expand business opportunities and educate the masses.
