Extended Abstract

When scientists embark on a mission to provide free educational materials on a global scale, video becomes the most critical piece, especially with the Global Educational Outreach for Science Engineering and Technology (GEOSET) initiative. GEOSET produces educational content for student class projects, science experiments, teacher support, supplements for a digital CV and many more productions. It also connects to around 50 partner institutions and organizations around the world. Learn GEOSET’s strategy for achieving sustainable international collaborations using Mediasite video.
