Online Learning Consortium’s (OLC) 20th Annual Online Learning International Conference is a wrap, but the conversations that began during the Orlando, Fla. event Oct. 29-31 are still going strong.
Attendees are sharing, sending, tweeting and retweeting conference highlights and watching the general sessions on-demand via Mediasite, Online Learning Consortium’s (formerly The Sloan Consortium) conference webcasting platform and technology partner. Onsite and online attendees can watch on-demand video recordings at no additional cost for a full year.
Through the live webcasts of 87 key conference sessions, OLC engaged more than 2,000 online attendees who were unable to make it to Orlando due to time or budget constraints. These attendees posed questions to presenters and, along with the 2,000 people who attended the conference on-site, can now watch concurrent sessions that they missed or want to review on-demand whenever and wherever they are using their desktop or mobile devices.
The online experience made the remote attendee feel like they were actually in Orlando by taking the audio, video, and presentation and combining them into a viewable format on a laptop or mobile device.
“Offering OLC as a hybrid event with the help of Sonic Foundry’s Mediasite Events team means we can reach a much larger audience around the world who otherwise wouldn’t be able to make it to our conference in Orlando. We’re ensuring that the conversations and knowledge shared during our event will live long after it’s over,” said Kathleen S. Ives, D.M. Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, OLC.
Attendees can watch the sessions on-demand including:

- How to Future-Proof Your Academic Video Strategy by Matt McCurdy, Sonic Foundry VP of Education
