Imagine this: You’re sitting in a one-day training session about something super techy and complicated. A ton of information is coming at you at a rapid pace and, while you take good notes, it’s impossible to remember everything. You’d most likely leave feeling overwhelmed wishing you had an online video library where you could go back and review the content, right?
Mona Aldana-Ramirez, director of retention support services for San Antonio College, knows all too well that one-time trainings aren’t the best ways to teach. For years she held face-to-face trainings for teachers one Saturday a month about how to use technology in the classroom and there was always the same predictable result – teachers left with way too much information and no way to remember it all. She wanted a searchable online video library of webcasts and once she realized how much easier Mediasite could make her job, she never looked back.
Now, instead of holding multiple trainings during the year, she records one training via Mediasite and sends it to teachers so they can watch it on-demand wherever and whenever they want. That saves Mona time, money and allows teachers to stay more informed about the newest technologies. A win-win for everyone involved.
“I haven’t stopped singing Mediasite’s praises since. Mediasite allows me to be many different places at once. It has helped us tremendously on the operation side of the college to be able to train our people more efficiently without me having to go face to face,” she said.
Mona’s online video library is just the tip of the iceberg for how she’s using Mediasite. To learn more check out our press release San Antonio College Uses Mediasite Webcasting Platform for Online Training.
