    Alamance Community College Selects Mediasite for Online Learning

    North Carolina school leverages Mediasite’s Zoom integration to deliver live collaborative instruction; Cost-effectively expands digital learning program through Mediasite’s partnership with MCNC non-profitMADISON, Wis., Dec. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alamance Community College in North Carolina has selected Mediasite to deliver live and on-demand online learning to students despite distance.  All faculty and students are using the desktop video capture software to record interactive lectures and assignments, and collaborative Zoom calls are automatically uploaded into Mediasite where they can be managed in one secure place beside all other campus videos.  The integration with Zoom lets faculty record and schedule meetings and turn them into valuable tools on-demand for students in Mediasite, complete with accessibility features, robust search, interactivity options, back-end analytics and more. Plus, via Mediasite’s integration with the college’s learning management system, Moodle, instructors can automatically have the lesson videos uploaded to specific courses within their LMS with fully automated transcripts of the Zoom recordings.  “We were using outdated desktop capture solutions but needed a simple and secure way to streamline our academic video initiative this school year amid the COVID pandemic as our students are learning from a distance. Mediasite’s seamless integration with Moodle and Zoom means lesson videos are automatically published in our LMS which creates easy access for our students where they are most comfortable learning,” said Jennifer Jones, Distance Learning Director, Alamance Community College.  Jones continued: “Mediasite’s user interface is easy for faculty and students and is the one-stop-shop to create and upload videos. It’s nice that they can use the software from home. Plus, the analytics let instructors see who watched what videos, when and for how long, which allows them to personalize lessons based on student behavior.”  The college is a member of the North Carolina Research and Education Network run by MCNC, a Mediasite partner. Through this partnership, all schools in the state from grades K-20 have access to cost-effective technology and services like Mediasite to start or expand their digital learning initiatives. The partnership has enabled more than 20 North Carolina institutions to bring this powerful technology to students and instructors.  “Mediasite for me is a safe and secure place for students in my public speaking courses to engage with each other’s video assignments,” said Dr. Kevin Sargent, English and Humanities instructor, Alamance Community College. “I needed a way to upload and share video lessons in a space supervised by the college, not the wild west of YouTube. Mediasite checks all the boxes for me and is an intuitive system that I easily learned.”  “It is critical that schools fully embrace the power of streaming video to create engaging and interactive learning experiences for students from a distance both now and post-COVID where we believe video is a permanent fixture of the classroom of the future,” said Joe Mozden Jr., CEO, Sonic Foundry, the maker of Mediasite. “Video has the power to transcend borders and time, and our vision and work to create integrations with widely used tools like Zoom allow Mediasite to be the central and secure virtual information hub.

    Louisiana Tech University Improves Student Outcomes with Mediasite for Hybrid Learning

    Campus holds in-person and online classes; Leaders say recorded lectures improve student success, access to educationMADISON, Wis., Nov. 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The school year looks markedly different this time around for Louisiana Tech University, but campus leaders are confident they have the perfect mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning tools to provide the same quality education  their students expect. Instructors are using Mediasite lecture videos and real-time Zoom calls to continue teaching and learning and improve student outcomes.  “Tools like Mediasite improve access to education for our students,” said Thomas Hoover, CIO, Louisiana Tech University. “We scaled up Mediasite campus-wide within one week in the spring. It will continue to be a great retention tool for students because we can create equity in the classroom and better outcomes for those who have difficulty working in a traditional class environment.”  This fall, courses are taking place a variety of ways including face-to-face, online, and hybrid. Instructors create video lessons with Mediasite from their offices or homes for students to watch prior to class. Then, students meet in real-time via Zoom for small group collaboration.  Creating a better learning experience for students with easy-to-use tech for instructorsA Mediasite user for nearly a decade, Louisiana Tech already had the infrastructure in place for success during the initial COVID-19 shutdown in the spring. But with less than 10 percent of its classes fully online at that time, the university needed to scale up quickly. Fast forward one week and 100 percent of classes were remote-ready, and a majority of Louisiana Tech’s faculty received training on how to use tools like Mediasite’s personal capture software.  Mediasite video use doubled in the spring and summer compared to the prior term at the university – instructors created nearly 22,000 lesson videos alone during that period. To date, students have viewed these videos nearly 112,000 times, signaling that they’re relying on Mediasite as a valuable study tool.  “We don’t know what’s going to happen in a month or two but having products like Mediasite is a tremendous help. Instructors can record lectures ahead of time or record a synchronous Zoom call and put it into Mediasite for students,” said Daniel Schales, Louisiana Tech’s Director for Infrastructure & IT. “This gives students the option to review the material as many times as they’d like.”  Mediasite is central destination for university’s Zoom recordingsLouisiana Tech instructors can manage all their video content in one secure and searchable place in Mediasite. An integration with Mediasite and Zoom lets instructors decide what calls should be sent to Mediasite. The recordings are automatically uploaded into the appropriate course folder in Mediasite alongside their other valuable videos and then distributed to students directly in their learning management system.  The Zoom recordings benefit from the full functionality of Mediasite – accessibility tools like closed captioning and transcription, robust search, video and caption editing, anytime and anywhere publishing, interactivity tools to track viewer engagement and back-end analytics.  “Being able to automatically and easily bring our Zoom content to Mediasite will let our students access all the educational videos in one common interface,” said Darrell Eddy, IT Coordinator and Network Administrator. “Plus, they can search for keywords in the recorded Zoom files and Mediasite will pinpoint exact parts of the lecture.”  “While this scenario certainly isn’t what students and instructors anticipated at the start of the year, Louisiana Tech University is fully embracing online learning as an opportunity to help its students learn with new technologies and communicate effectively with video. These are skills that students will continue to need throughout their educational and professional journeys,” said Joe Mozden Jr., CEO, Sonic Foundry, the maker of Mediasite. “Louisiana Tech is creating an engaging learning experience for students regardless of their location, and we are proud to continue our longstanding relationship with the university that is a quickly positioning itself as a leader in hybrid learning amid the pandemic.”  Mediasite is a highly-automated and integrated video platform that facilitates hybrid learning in this new digital-first world. Trusted by 1,700 schools in 65 countries, Mediasite quickly and cost-effectively scales the capture, management, delivery and search of live and on-demand streaming videos. Mediasite’s solutions create the most engaging, data-rich and personalized learning experiences possible as students and instructors collaborate from a distance.    About Louisiana Tech UniversityLouisiana Tech University offers students an unparalleled educational experience, and the University has been recognized as one of America’s Top Colleges in Forbes and as the No. 1 college in the state of Louisiana for value in Kiplinger’s.

    Mediasite Events Announces New Complete Virtual Event Platform

    Virtual experience includes customized website, streamed sessions, e-posters, an expo hall with sponsors, interactive activities, live chat and moreMADISON, Wis., Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mediasite Events today announces a new complete virtual event platform for a video-first world. No two events are the same, and the Mediasite Events team is custom-building virtual worlds for organizations and schools of all sizes for a flexible, scalable and engaging experience, despite distance.  The team, which has more than 15 years of experience creating dynamic online events all over the globe, is providing white glove services without the need for travel. The virtual event platform includes everything from a customizable event website with live or simulated live session streaming, content catalogues, e-commerce options for sponsors, virtual expo halls, e-poster sessions, interactive features like live chat and polling and more.  “Our new virtual event platform is everything you need to keep the show going, despite COVID travel restraints. Over the years, we’ve captured thousands of events from around the world, and we’ve learned what makes the most engaging online experiences. We’ve used our data from those conferences to create the highest-quality, easiest-to-use virtual event solution on the market,” said Joe Mozden, Jr., CEO, Sonic Foundry, the maker of Mediasite. “Virtual events are the new normal and, even as the world starts to re-open, we believe it is forever changed. Schools and organizations need to be remote-ready to connect their audiences, wherever they are, and we are excited to help them create true collaboration with our new platform.”  With Mediasite Events' complete virtual platform users can:   * Expand reach with live (or simulated live) streaming: Mediasite Events streams all sessions – keynotes, e-posters, etc. – and promotes interaction among attendees. Mediasite Events is powered by the award-winning Mediasite Video Platform that is used by more than 5,200 schools, corporations, and healthcare organizations around the world. A Mediasite Events technician works with each speaker via a virtual speaker ready room and handles all technical aspects throughout the entire presentation to ensure a smooth experience for the conference presenters.  * Give attendees engaging content: Speakers present from anywhere via Zoom, and attendees watch and interact with the stream, either live, in a simulated live or on-demand, from anywhere in a secure and robust Mediasite player. Capturing and delivering the content via Mediasite means viewers can benefit from a livelier experience with several feeds – they can see both the speaker and presentation materials in two large windows. Viewers can benefit from closed captions, interactive features like live chat, polls and speaker Q&A, and a robust search field that searches individual videos or entire video libraries to find exact moments. Plus, in a virtual setting, presenters can be more engaged with audiences by watching their pre-recorded sessions together with viewers and answering questions in real time. * Recreate the in-person networking audiences expect: Virtual attendees can feel like they are still receiving the conference experience with a customized website that looks like a convention center – a welcome lobby with clickable banners, signage and exhibitor logos. From dynamic virtual expo halls to interactive features, attendees are immersed in an engaging online experience. * Transform revenue with e-commerce: E-commerce options let organizers generate additional revenue with tiered sponsorships. Sponsors can share embedded promo videos, ads and company information to connect with attendees. Plus, they will receive more qualified leads than ever before in this new environment.  “Mediasite Events helped us create a fully virtual Distance Teaching & Learning event. We received outstanding reviews from our attendees, staff and presenters about the ease of use of the platform, the white glove technical support and the exquisite experience built by Mediasite Events for our virtual exhibit hall,” said Wendy Fritz, Director, Learning Design, Development & Innovation, UW-Madison Continuing Studies.  The National Association for Healthcare Quality (NAHQ), a longtime user of Mediasite Events, traditionally only had a supplemental virtual component to its in-person conference, but last month’s fully virtual event set attendance highs amid the pandemic. Director of Events Jacki Weiglein attributed it to the Mediasite Events platform’s ease of use and accessibility.  “We were very pleased with the virtual experience Mediasite Events created and are already planning the virtual component of our 2021 event,” Weiglein said. “Our attendees absolutely loved the experience, and regardless of what the next year brings, we are going to up our virtual game going forward. The experience was extremely intuitive for our attendees and allowed us to put our continuing education content front and center.”  The world's top companies and continuing education conferences trust Mediasite Events to create dynamic virtual and hybrid events that engage global audiences in this new digital-first world. With the most experienced project managers and rock-solid technology in the industry, Mediasite Events is the complete go-to virtual solution with everything needed to take an event online.
