The Future of Capture on Your Campus: Lessons Learned in the First Ten Years of Lecture Capture

by Erica St. Angel on August 17, 2011

Ever wonder what keeps the colleges and universities who do the most lecture capture up at night? Sean Brown knows, and it might surprise you.

Your lecture capture pilot may start in a single classroom, but if history is a guide, it won't end there. Perhaps no other educational technology goes from pilot to full scale deployment faster, be that building-, school-, campus- or even system-wide.

When that happens - and it will - how are you going to handle security, storage or support? The majority of colleges have not considered the actual ramifications of creating, managing, storing and securing thousands of hours of recorded course content.

Sean Brown, Sonic Foundry's vice president of education, has been to the future and is back to report how you will be meeting that challenge.

Join us for a live webinar, "The Future of Capture on Your Campus: Lessons Learned in the First Ten Years of Lecture Capture," on Tuesday, August 30 at 1:00 p.m. Central (convert to your time zone here). It's free! Just register here before we go live.

Sean will take you on a tour of three campuses who have amassed hundreds of thousands of hours of recorded lectures.

Together, you will explore why they chose a built-in, wall-to-wall solution over software, the impact of that decision on faculty adoption and how they now meet the growing demand with limited budget, staff and time. Plus he'll answer your most pressing questions about what you need to do now to succeed in the not-so-far off future, including:

  • How to provision for prolific rich media content creation, including a checklist of policies and resources you will need once your lecture capture is ubiquitous and you find yourself sitting on a mountain of recorded classes
  • Guidance for writing your RFP with the proper scope for system-wide lecture capture
  • Ways to leverage your existing AV and IT infrastructure investments that support a long-term capture vision
  • What is the single most important feature to look for in a system-wide lecture capture platform that will serve you well, long into the future - storage, bandwidth, security, automation, support, content management, integration, mobile playback or price
