Team Mediasite is headed to Philadelphia next week for EDUCAUSE 2011, along with a few thousand of our closest friends in higher education IT. The events and IT people at EDUCAUSE are top notch, truly leading the pack when it comes to dynamic sessions, exciting exhibitions and interactive hybrid events. If you haven’t booked your ticket, you can still book online!
What will we be up to?
Streaming, live, in HD, and to mobile.
That’s right boys and girls, Mediasite is now even more mobile. We’re showcasing Mediasite 6: the first and broadest live mobile streaming – iPad®, iPhone®, iPod®, Blackberry® and Android® devices – from a professional-grade webcasting appliance and rich media management platform. You can see it in action in our booth #1219. And that’s not all…
We’re proud to be the webcasting partner for EDUCAUSE again (Victoria Fanning, EDUCAUSE Director of Hybrid and Online Meetings gave a stellar presentation this summer, Strategic Planning for a Successful Hybrid Event, in our best practices webinar series). Mediasite will be streaming live from the general and featured session rooms, plus some of the concurrent session. And a few of these will also be streaming live in HD – come by our booth #1219 to see EDUCAUSE online it in all its HD glory.
As a platinum sponsor of EDUCAUSE, we are firm believers in the contributions of higher ed IT, the contribution of technology to making education more successful and efficient in these unprecedented times.
Our VP of Education Sean Brown takes the mic again this year to present, “The Future of Lecture Capture: What You’ll Worry about When Your Pilot Goes Campus-wide” on Thursday, October 20 at 2:30 ET in meeting room 204B (hashtag is #E11_CORP15).
Giving away iPads.
Come to booth #1219, watch some Mediasite on an iPad2, then look for the QR code to get entered to win. Or if you are attending EDUCAUSE Online, stop by our virtual booth to get your name in the mix.
Meeting up with Mediasite User Group members.
900+ colleges and universities choose Mediasite for lecture capture. A good chunk of them will also be in Philadelphia next week, so we’re meeting up at the Cherry Lounge in the Four Point Points Sheraton right across the street, and right after the show floor closes, on Wednesday, October 19 at 5:00 pm ET. Nothing formal, come as you are – even if you haven’t yet formally joined the Mediasite User Group community.
Taking notes at the Campus Computing session.
We’ve had the pleasure of webcasting Kenneth Green, Founding Director of The Campus Computing Project, at EDUCAUSE, Campus Technology and WCET in the past, and we’re delighted to go live with him again at EDUCAUSE 2011 as he presents the results of “Campus Computing 2011: The National Survey of E-Learning and Information Technology in Higher Education (hashtag is #E11_SESS070).” It’s Thursday, October 20 at 9:00 ET in meeting room 113B/C. As sponsors of both his Campus Computing and Managing Online Education research, we’re anxious to see the results – will lecture capture win another Digital Puck award (a la Wayne Gretsky, “I skate to where the puck is going, not to where it has been)?
It’s going to be a busy and exciting week, if EDUCAUSE 2010 and EDUCAUSE 2009 were any guide. And if you can’t join us there or online, you can catch conference updates on a ton of sites, including via Twitter at #EDU11 and follow us @Mediasite.
Here’s the lovely and talented Kristin Zurovitch (@kzuro), our Product Marketing Manager, with the details, via Mediasite of course.
