    Mediasite to Showcase Advanced Integration with Zoom at Zoomtopia this Week

    Mediasite’s SVP Elizabeth Collins to present at Zoom’s virtual user conference alongside Mediasite users from Florida Atlantic UniversityMADISON, Wis., Oct. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As schools and businesses use web and video conference systems prolifically for remote work and live online learning, it is critical those meetings and classes turn into evergreen learning content in a central and secure virtual information hub. The seamless integration between Mediasite and Zoom Video Communications, Inc. makes that possible and will be showcased at the virtual Zoomtopia 2020 this week.  Mediasite’s Senior Vice President of North America Sales Elizabeth Collins will present on a panel discussion, Enriching Distance Learning with Collaboration, Content Management, and LMS Apps, at 3 pm CT Thursday at Zoom’s user conference.  Creating a robust, interactive video channel of Mediasite + Zoom recordings Collins will discuss Mediasite’s advanced integration with Zoom. The integration lets users record and schedule Zoom meetings in the Mediasite platform and turn them into valuable tools on-demand, complete with accessibility features, robust search, interactivity options, back-end analytics and more. Plus, via Mediasite’s integration with all leading learning management systems (LMS), instructors can automatically have the content uploaded to specific courses within their LMS with fully automated transcripts of the Zoom recordings. This creates easy access for students where they are most comfortable learning.  “COVID-19 has forever changed the educational and corporate landscape, and that’s not a bad thing. Streaming video has an amazing ability to reach people in new and exciting ways,” Collins said. “I wholeheartedly believe that technology, when leveraged to its full potential, can help produce virtual experiences that are personal and effective. Using the right tools in tandem, like streaming Mediasite video and collaborative Zoom calls, creates an engaging, interactive viewing experience.

    Northeast Ohio Medical University Plans for Virtual Fall with Mediasite

    Ohio school leverages Mediasite and Zoom to deliver effective live instruction to studentsMADISON, Wis., Aug. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Longtime Mediasite user Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) successfully pivoted to online during the initial spring campus shutdown. They found the perfect formula for a live hybrid fall: a rotating schedule for on-site and online students and an essential mix of Mediasite streaming live- and on-demand video lectures and Zoom collaborative calls. Medical students of the Rootstown, Ohio university will still get a front row seat to all classes, demos, simulations and campus events, regardless of where they’re learning.  “Our students and faculty were already comfortable with online learning prior to the COVID-19 shutdown last spring, because we’ve been using Mediasite for the past 15 years,” said Michael Wright, Director, Academic Technology, NEOMED. “Mediasite is at the heart of our video strategy. Everything was in place prior, and it took us less than a week to pivot to virtual. The fall semester will be an adjustment, but we are confident our students and faculty will have an enjoyable, engaging and comfortable teaching and learning experience.”  Creating socially-distanced hybrid learning experiences NEOMED plans to have staff and faculty record lectures with Mediasite for students to watch prior to class time in their Sakai learning management system. Students and instructors will then spend class time discussing rigorous topics, focusing on the areas where further instruction would be most useful. Students will follow a rotating schedule to determine if they’ll be online or on campus that day.  In-person classes will take place in NEOMED’s new large group space, which will now be used for small group interactive discussions where they can be properly social-distanced, and instructors will use Zoom to connect them with online students. The in-person students will see the lesson content and online participants on several large screens in the room, and the online students can interact, chat and ask questions. Instructors will also use a student response system app called Turning Technologies.  The Zoom recordings will be uploaded into Mediasite where they can be managed in one secure and searchable place beside all other campus videos. Plus, the Zoom recordings will benefit from the full functionality of Mediasite – robust accessibility tools and search, video and caption editing capabilities, anytime and anywhere publishing, interactivity options to track viewer engagement and back-end analytics.  Capturing lab work NEOMED has a fully-integrated gross anatomy lab to capture simulations and share live streams with students in their LMS whether they’re watching in-person or at home.  “Similar to lectures, students will take turns visiting the lab. We’ll be teaching the same content and Mediasite can capture several angles of a demonstration, so students won’t miss a beat. A gross anatomy lab is one of the most valuable resources to medical students, but each lab experience is a one-and-done operation. You can’t recreate it, but you can use Mediasite to capture the moment for on-demand review,” Wright said.  Learn more about NEOMED’s gross anatomy lab in this webinar, originally recorded at the Mediasite user conference, MSX, last fall.  Keeping students, the community connected via virtual events The university is not only using the most engaging technologies to keep students connected during classes, it is also thinking outside the box to help keep the college experience alive by live streaming campus events. NEOMED streamed the spring commencement ceremony via Mediasite. Using Zoom, campus leaders and students joined the virtual ceremony – leaders made congratulatory remarks, family members hooded their graduates and students could say a few words.  “The students had a more enjoyable event because they were surrounded by family and friends, and everyone saw the students’ reactions up close. It was much more personable,” Wright said.  In addition, NEOMED live streamed its Match Day ceremony in which students found out where they will complete their residencies. They joined via Zoom and again, Mediasite streamed it live.  “NEOMED was extremely well-positioned to pivot quickly in the spring, and it’s no surprise that this Ohio medical school is leading the way among its peers for the fall. The university has combined the perfect mix of technologies to ensure that, wherever students are learning, they’ll have a front row seat to the action. In a hybrid, non-traditional learning environment, this is a critical part of students’ success,” said Elizabeth Collins, SVP of North America Sales, Sonic Foundry, maker of Mediasite. “Having the ability to see all angles of simulations and instructors’ lessons, re-watch them and learn at their own pace creates an engaging, personalized experience even when they’re not in the classroom. We are proud to continue our 15-year relationship with NEOMED to help position the campus as a leader in medical education.”Mediasite is a highly-automated and integrated video platform that facilitates hybrid learning in this new digital-first world.

    Western University of Health Sciences Plans for Hybrid Fall with Mediasite

    California and Oregon health professions students watch Mediasite lecture videos over 1 million times to dateMADISON, Wis., Aug. 18, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Western University of Health Services is nearing 1 million Mediasite views from its students, due to a massive online learning bump during the spring campus shutdown. A significant portion of those views came from students since March alone.  The health professions university, which has campuses in Pomona, Calif. and Lebanon, Ore., pivoted swiftly to virtual learning with a mix of video lectures and collaborative Zoom and Microsoft Teams calls, all available in its learning management systems Blackboard, Canvas and Elentra. As the new school year quickly approaches, the university is planning for all possible scenarios with Mediasite at the heart of its teaching and learning strategy.  “We are planning for a hybrid approach,” said Amber Schaefer, Educational Technology Administrator, Western University of Health Sciences. “Some of our courses can be conducted completely remotely, however much of our medical curriculum is hands-on. We are working on expanding synchronous teaching to multiple classrooms to allow for greater social distancing, combined with supplemental on-demand lectures.”A Mediasite user since 2017, the university’s vast library of lesson videos already available to faculty – 65,000 – contributed to their quick move to virtual learning. Instructors created or repurposed 14,200 of those in that short time period.   Prior to the spring campus closure, Mediasite captured many in-person lessons in classrooms. Instructors recorded supplemental content for flipped instruction and they uploaded videos created from other tools into Mediasite, ensuring all content is available in one robust, searchable online portal. In addition, Mediasite captured demos, simulations, grand rounds and student work from labs, complete with multiple video feeds to show complex topics.“I hear from students all the time that they review Mediasite recordings immediately after class if they want to review what their instructor said. Students will contact faculty right away if they don’t have the recordings. These videos are an essential study tool for our aspiring medical professionals,” Schaefer said.Schaefer continued: “It’s been amazing how everyone has pulled together to ensure our students are successful during this new reality. We were lucky enough to already have Mediasite and other collaborative tools up and running when the pandemic first hit, and that made all the difference.”“While it is difficult to predict what the next school year holds for campuses, having a strong mix of technology in place ensures that students and instructors will be able to pivot and react to any scenario,” said Elizabeth Collins, SVP of North America Sales, Sonic Foundry, maker of Mediasite. “Western University of Health Sciences is a fantastic example of a highly successful online learning initiative. Instructors are effectively delivering engaging video lessons to students, who are in turn using them as important study tools after class. Everyone learns differently, and in this new blended environment, it will be more important than ever that students can go back and review lessons – rewinding, fast-forwarding and pausing to take notes. We are proud to continue to be the trusted solution for the university during this uncertain time.”Mediasite is a highly-automated and integrated video platform that facilitates hybrid learning in this new digital-first world.
