Is Room-Based Lecture Capture Better for 21st Century Learning?
In 2009, the University of Michigan Ross School of Business opened the doors to a new era of learning designed to enhance the digital culture that defines student life. Every room in the state-of-the-art 270,000 square foot building – from the large auditoriums to the intimate collaborative spaces – was equipped to support the most seamless use of integrated technologies while becoming a model of student learning efficiencies.
Now integral in every function of the school, room-based lecture capture technology is used not only for recording traditional classroom instruction, but also webcasting interviews with The New York Times, faculty panels and even recruitment with prospective students.
Join Sean Brown, vice president of education at Sonic Foundry, and his guest Edward Adams, chief technology officer at University of Michigan Ross School of Business, for an inside look at the decision-making process that helped the school get more faculty, classes and programs online faster with room-based video streaming.
The presenters will take your questions live, and discuss:
- How to determine if a room-based webcasting solution for streaming video production and distribution is right for you?
- Why now is the time to embrace digital media, recording everything from lecture capture and team projects to special events and panel discussions?
- Ways to best support your school’s internal processes by integrating lecture capture with existing technology infrastructure?
- Why room-based lecture capture proves easier to use for faculty and other academic staff, and scales faster as a result?
- What should a streamlined quickstart interface look like, what features should it include for faculty choice and control, and what impact does it have on AV support, staffing and training?
Who will benefit:
Chief information and technology officers, academic deans and department heads, IT directors, facility managers, instructional technologists. Anyone may attend.
