After teaching in classrooms equipped with the Mediasite lecture capture platform, ten faculty share their reactions and results.

“I was concerned that streaming courses may encourage absenteeism but attendance has been 100 percent, and they are all viewing the lecture as well. I think that is remarkable. It tells me students are interested in going back for learning purposes.”

Dr. Imran Currim, Chancellor’s Professor of Marketing
The Paul Merage School of Business, University of California, Irvine

“Here’s what I call hybrid teaching. I record a Mediasite lecture and ask students to view it as homework. When they come to class, we use that time to engage in active dialogue versus having just minutes to answer questions at the end. It’s an effective and really appealing way to teach.”

Dr. Christina Eyers, Assistant Professor
Central Michigan University

"The fact that we use Mediasite for students to do practice interviews, role playing, peer critiques, self and faculty assessments helps our students stand out against other job candidates, and our job placement approaches 100 percent.”

Deirdre Jones, Instructor and Associate Director
Schmidt School of Professional Sales,
University of Toledo

"Mediasite levels the playing field for distance students, who are every bit as good—and in many cases better—than campus students. Learning via Mediasite, they do well on exams, show tremendous insight on projects and ask provoking questions.”

Dr. Douglas Montgomery, Regents Professor
Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering, Arizona State University

"Using Mediasite our students end up sitting at the equivalent of an actual dental chair with a front row seat for lab demonstrations. They go back into the lecture capture to a point that’s important and have the faculty member who just finished doing the demonstration right there to answer questions.”

Dr. James Craig, Professor and Educational Consultant
School of Dentistry, University of Maryland, Baltimore

“When you're getting ready to stream a class, success is going to depend on your attitude. If you come into it with a more positive attitude, you will have a rewarding experience and grow as an instructor.”

Dr. Anne-Marie Lerner, Assistant Professor
School of Engineering, University of Wisconsin - Platteville

“I’m getting extremely positive feedback. Mediasite has been absolutely integral to us delivering this seminar series to a worldwide audience.”

Dr. Glenn Geher, Professor and Director of Evolutionary Studies
State University of New York at New Paltz

“The biggest challenge was feeling that people were judging my teaching. But as soon as students gave feedback I realized this isn’t about judging. Mediasite captures the classroom experience - they hear me, they hear their peers and they learn from that.”

Jennifer Flatt, Associate Dean and Professor
University of Wisconsin - Marinette

“I could not promote deep learning in the way that I do without Mediasite lecture capture. I'm using video streaming for mentoring messages, for coaching and for lectures themselves.”

Dr. Diane Zorn, Course Director
York University

“Students like the idea that, when they met in the classroom having watched the lecture captures ahead of time, they were able to use the class time to talk to the faculty, and ask more engaging questions.”

Dr. Pamela Havice, Associate Professor
Clemson University
