Our workforce is geographically dispersed. We go from the east coast to the west coast and everywhere in between, and trying to manage that workforce through different training efforts was very difficult. Before Mediasite we had a lot of live instructor training with all those limitations but now we can capture and distribute content.
Before Mediasite we were struggling, and now we are soaring. We're very excited and very impressed by how easy it's been to transform the way we provide those services. It wasn't hard. I learned Mediasite very quickly and now I'm able as the CEO to capture, store and distribute communications.

We live in an era where video is being live-streamed, recorded and is rapidly becoming our primary source for learning something new. Leading corporations and education institutions have amazing opportunities to harness the power of video to advance their message, improve collaboration, expand business opportunities and educate the masses.
Do you fear planning a hybrid event because you’re not sure how it fits into your event strategy, you don’t know if your venue has the infrastructure to support it, or your AV budget may not support it? Does the long list of considerations – technologies, session formats, building a hybrid strategy – have you suffering from decision fatigue? Do you wonder whether your attendees will even understand or want to participate in an event that incorporates technology? Don’t worry. It’s easier than you think to create a hybrid meeting with the right plan in place.
There’s no question that traditional professional development for teachers is expensive, inefficient and takes away precious classroom time.
“Until now professional development was delivered in 6-8 hour sessions, provided enormous binders for future reference, and didn’t adequately address the issue of whether teachers were absorbing the material,” said Amy Cote, program director for the Center for Educational ReVision.
Just when you’ve got your AV plan nailed down for the boardrooms, meeting rooms and training rooms, there’s a new trend taking hold to supplement the work your employees do – a dramatic shift toward BYOD (bring your own device) and consumerization. While employees have been using personal devices in the office since the first calculator, they’ve never been as functional, collaborative, personal or ubiquitous as they are now. And workers have never been more tech-savvy.
With its user friendly interface and easy-to-use web functionality, Mediasite will continue to be our primary system for internal training, educating and spreading important health and safety innovations throughout our province-wide network.
