University of Florida-Physics Department Develops Better Laboratory Experiences for Online Students with Mediasite Desktop Recorder
Professors in the University of Florida-Department of Physics run experiments and collect live data during lectures so students can see science in action. They needed a way to record the experimental data and replicate the science lab experience for the online students. The university is a long-time Mediasite user. Since 2004, it’s been capturing what’s […]
When it comes to educating tomorrow’s medical professionals, nothing compares to video for maximizing training effectiveness and achieving student proficiency and excellence. This is readily apparent at Duke University where Mediasite is embraced as the video platform of choice across Duke School of Medicine, Duke School of Nursing and Duke Health Technology Solutions. I had […]

More than half of all faculty are using video to flip their classrooms, according to Center For Digital Education, and that number is growing. We’re celebrating flipping today, the second annual Flip Your Classroom Day, a global initiative launched by the Flipped Learning Network.
Thanks to technologies like My Mediasite, it’s the hot trend that’s quickly becoming a classic.
Teikyo University is a private university in the Itabashi ward of Tokyo with four main campuses and enrollment of about 24,000 students. It introduced Mediasite into two campuses in the past two years, and Professor Hiroyoshi Watanabe shared the details of the university’s successful and prolific Mediasite implementation this morning at Unleash 2014, the Mediasite User Conference.
Temple University’s Fox School of Business is among the largest, most distinguished business schools in the world, and faculty use the newest technologies to transform the way business students learn. The use of academic video has exploded in the school and is deepening engagement, personalizing learning and ultimately improving learning outcomes and retention.

A new method of instruction is heating up classrooms thanks to the availability of creation and capture tools at the fingertips of faculty and students. Many traditional lecturing professors started experimenting with a technology-driven pedagogy that we’ve all heard a lot about by now — flipped classrooms.
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.
