Video use in higher education shouldn’t be a one-way experience.
Not that long ago, “video in education” basically meant wheeling in a TV cart,
hitting play on the VCR, and having students passively watch, say, an episode of
Nova, a Ken Burns documentary, or maybe a film version of Romeo and Juliet.
Today, thanks to the amazing technological advancements, we can incorporate
a lot more video in the learning. What if, while showing that same video,
professors could flag an important scene, or link to an article that provides a
deeper layer of information? What if students could ask a question in real-time,
without disrupting class or clicking away from the video? Mediasite makes this all
possible — and a lot more.
We believe video is an interactive learning tool. It has the power to improve
student retention, create powerful faculty-student interaction, and empower
students to collaborate in ways that take learning in exciting new directions
