On Monday, more than 30 Mediasite users from the New England area gathered in Boston, Mass. for the first-ever Northeast Mediasite Chapter Meeting. They spent the day collaborating and sharing how they’re using online video to boost student engagement and achievement.
Thank you to our fantastic host, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, for making this event possible. Here are some highlights from the day.
Ian Tosh, Manager of Media and Educational Technology Services at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, talks about a new active learning classroom and the flexibility Mediasite provided in the room design.
“Flexibility has been something that I’ve really enjoyed in AV design, as well as in our use of Mediasite,” he said.

Hundreds of volunteers, including Centennial students, role play to simulate emergency situations. This year it was a subway crash and a mass shooting, and one of the college’s campuses served as a mock hospital.
The annual event lets medical professionals work and problem solve together and better prepares them for real life disaster situations. Plus, students get hands on experience that is impossible to have in the classroom.

The Desktop Recorder allows users to easily capture, upload and share video from any computer, and faculty and […]
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 […]
Video is at the heart of every modern teaching and learning approach. Recent research shows more than half of all faculty use video to flip at least part of their classes (Center for Digital Education), and over 7.1 million students are taking at least one online course (Online Learning Consortium). So, since supporting engaging online […]
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.
