Thriving in the Age of Digital Education
Making decisions about the future of technology on campuses has never been harder. The slow economic recovery has tightened funding for major construction projects, as well as important technology upgrades. Rising tuition costs are becoming a major pocketbook and political issue. Regardless, the expectation for “state of the art” learning persists. Then, 2012 saw the launch of initiatives like Coursera, EdX, and Udacity that are challenging our historical model of what it means to “go to college.”
This interactive, audience-driven keynote session will explore the impact these issues and others are having on colleges and universities and the role that video can play to point a pathway toward a brighter future. Scott Walker, CTS-D, LEED AP and president of Waveguide Consulting, a leading independent technology consulting firm with experience on hundreds of higher education projects, will lead this keynote session and facilitate a discussion among the attendees about their response to these changing times. SPEAKER: Scott Walker, CTS-D, LEED AP; President, Waveguide Consulting
The Future of Video in Education: A Vision of Your Campus in 2013 and Beyond
Meteoric student demand has prompted universities large and small to evaluate how best to harness the power of video in support of their academic missions. Your words, your knowledge - they are the essence of what makes a university. But what’s the best way to capture that knowledge before it evaporates into thin air? Campuses that are wired for video are the digital sources of the future and will be the catalysts for making knowledge transfer prolific. This new student-driven phenomenon is pushing academic video to the forefront of institutions' technology planning initiatives. Learn how leading institutions have already harnessed this power and the unique features of the technology solution they use to make it happen.
Join the decade-long leader in rich video capture as they describe their vision for the future of instructional media on your campus – from virtualized cross-campus content capture to searchable video automatically indexed and tagged – with a Mediasite heartbeat at the center. SPEAKER: Sean Brown, Sonic Foundry Vice President of Education

You Want How Many Videos??? Meeting faculty needs for online video in a severely constrained environment.
Educational Technology Services produced 100 video clips in four months with little money, no traditional studio and only two media specialists for the first three MOOC courses UCSF offered; Contraception, Nutrition and Clinical Problem Solving. All were produced in a make-shift studio with no more than two months’ notice before recording began. The majority were "in the can" by December, 2012, and delivered beginning February 2013. The ease, fluidity, and relatively low-cost with which this was done has created a demand among medical faculty to produce similar videos for their face-to-face and hybrid classes, resulting in a plan to create a new studio by fall 2013. There are many valuable lessons learned and "best practices" to be share with others. SPEAKER: John DeAngelo, Director Educational Technology Services, University of California San Francisco
