OLC Accelerate 2019 is over, but thanks to the power of video the conversations that took place there are still going strong. Online Learning Consortium (OLC) selected Mediasite to be the national webcasting partner for the event in Orlando, Florida last month.

Mediasite Events streamed OLC Accelerate 2019 to new online audiences. In the OLC Live! Virtual Hub online attendees could converse with presenters and their peers and watch sessions in real-time.

Through the live webcasts of more than 100 conference sessions, OLC engaged over 1,000 online attendees who were unable to make it to Orlando. They posed questions to presenters and, along with the 1,623 people who attended the conference on-site, can now re-watch these sessions on-demand on any device.

OLC Accelerate brings together academic leaders, faculty and administrators to discuss education innovation, including emerging technologies, how to incorporate intelligent learning management systems and designing blended classrooms.

“Each year, OLC Accelerate brings together online learning leaders, faculty, staff and researchers from around the world to explore digital education and emerging classroom technologies. Video platforms, like Mediasite, provide an essential pathway for this knowledge to be captured and shared beyond the confines of the conference itself. Mediasite allows for an open and unique environment for our remote attendees,” said Jennifer Mathes, OLC Interim Chief Executive Officer.

Mediasite also demoed its latest enhancements that help schools meet Gen Z learning demands, including a new caption editor, enhanced accessibility tools, in-video quizzing, student assignment submission and capture solutions for collaborative environments.

Trusted by more than 1,700 colleges and universities, the patented Mediasite webcasting and video content management system quickly and cost-effectively automates the capture, management, delivery and search of live and on-demand videos for campus events, lecture capture and flipped learning.
