This session is a panel of several Mediasite users at various institutions, providing an overview of their own needs, testing, evaluations, etc. from the last year of using Mediasite.
Cuyahoga Community College
- Students have access to Mediasite Desktop Recorder on lab/public computers.
- Recording hardware is installed in select classrooms
Students at Tri-C have the ability to upload content to Mediasite – faculty & staff are concerned with storage space, security permissions, and inappropriate content. It sounds as though Tri-C has different permissions for students when they record/upload videos (limiting people outside of that specific class or preventing non-Tri-C users).
Created a low-cost way of setting up Catch in their classrooms, depending on the extensive of needs for those rooms.
At UWM, all of the rooms are pre-scheduled for using Mediasite Catch – the techs meet with instructors prior to the start of the semester to teach them how to use the system.
I think this was the most informative session so far. It was great to hear about how other institutions are using Mediasite, including installations, the types of equipment, as well as training. It’s perfect timing (maybe a little late, actually) because we’re starting to figure out what the stock equipment would be for upgrading classrooms. With limited Mediasite Catch licenses and limited equipment, room scheduling could become an issue.
