Brief Abstract

Join Tom Irons of Mediasite as he tells you what you need in a video platform to support active and micro learning in any classroom. 

Presenters

Over the last 12 years, Tom has worked for Sonic Foundry, but his work with its Mediasite technology began much earlier… as a customer. As Director of Classroom Technology at East Carolina University in North Carolina, he played a crucial role in one of the earliest and largest Mediasite deployments. He assisted in purchasing the equipment and servers for the first 20+ rooms deployed there, which he later expanded to more than 40. His involvement in the early stages of Mediasite caught the attention of Sonic Foundry and he has been working with Mediasite ever since — now as Director of Customer Success.

Extended Abstract

Gen Z students expect their courses to be steeped in tech, so it’s critical that instructors make their content as engaging and collaborative as possible. That’s easy with the right video tools.

Mediasite not only has interactivity features built in, but – most importantly — it integrates with the right technologies to create a truly immersive, personalized learning experience. Join Tom Irons of Mediasite as he tells you what you need in a video platform to support active and micro learning in any classroom. You’ll learn how instructors can:

  • Measure progress and give real-time feedback to students with in-video quizzes and polls
  • View and grade video assignments in a secure playlist directly in their LMS
  • Help students to actively learn with annotations and comments
  • Transform the learning experience for a video-literate – and video-hungry – generation of students
