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:
“Mediasite worked wonderfully in the classroom,” said Mona Aldana-Ramirez, Director of Retention Support Services.
During this pilot, the students who had access to on-demand lectures weren’t required to view them, but 95% did. The majority watched them right before classes or to supplement their notes.
Once they had a taste of lecture capture, there was no going back. They pushed to have Mediasite in all their classes.
This is the most recent in a long line of initiatives at San Antonio College involving Mediasite. Check out what else Mona has to say at www.sonicfoundry.com/customer/mona-aldana-ramirez and watch the video below to see why the school is a finalist for an RMIA this year.
