Video lecture-capture demonstration Wednesday, Dec. 18

Demand for academic video is growing rapidly across the Kansas State University campus. To accommodate this need, Information Technology Services has examined several video-capture systems. During the discovery period, one product clearly stood out above the rest, Mediasite by Sonic Foundry.

Come see for yourself what Mediasite can do. Mediasite representative Chuck Coopman will give a demonstration 1-3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, in the Big 12 Room at the K-State Student Union. An information session will follow the demonstration.

Mediasite is a capture-and-distribution software that allows instructors to make live and on-demand digital recordings of their lectures and presentations. With Mediasite, lectures can be recorded in a digital format that students can then watch over the Web on a computer or their mobile device. Lecture-capture technology records the instructor’s audio and video, as well as any visual aids coming from laptop, tablet, whiteboard, and document camera.

To learn more about the demonstration or Mediasite, contact Artur Gregorian, electronic media coordinator in the Office of Mediated Education, at 785-532-2483.
