How to Reach More Learners with Live Online Continuing Education

On Demand

When Minnesota Continuing Legal Education decided to go online with their courses, they went big. The organization built a state-of-the-art studio and started producing more than 300 live educational webcasts a year.

But with high-production demands coupled with state requirements for continuing education, they quickly outgrew their homegrown webcasting system. They needed a flexible, reliable platform that would scale to meet their growing needs.

Learn how a strategic decision to invest in Mediasite enabled them to reach thousands of viewers each week, and changed the face of continuing legal education in Minnesota. Join us for this live webinar with Peter Berge, web education director for Minnesota CLE. He’ll give us a video tour of his three-camera studio as well as share:

  • Why designing online education courses is not the same as simply recreating what happens in a traditional classroom
  • The video business model that keeps this non-profit in business
  • How standardizing on Mediasite gives them content-creation, playback and management options for the most nimble approach to CLE
  • The association’s future plans to leverage Mediasite for further engagement with the online audience
