About World of Webcast

The World of Webcast blog is written by marketing and product management wonks that happen to work for Sonic Foundry.

We cover all things webcasting, including industry trends in lecture capture, event webcasting, knowledge management and of course the latest news on Sonic Foundry’s Mediasite technology.

Our primary goal is to create a great reference site for the Mediasite user community with helpful – and hopefully entertaining – commentary and tools you can use in your jobs, on your committees and with your teams.

We also hope you’ll take time to connect with other customers, here or through our other networks
