First Higher Education Video Community User Group

by Perry.Fetterman

The use of video as a learning tool has accelerated rapidly across all aspects of campus life and we at Kaltura are embracing it with the creation of the first of many regional higher education user groups. Last week we helped kick off the first higher education video user group in Boston. The event took place on November 15th at MIT and focused on discussing the use of rich media in academic institutions and promoting knowledge sharing between them.

Teaching is as much a part of the academic institution as learning, so when discussing the format of the meeting all parties involved felt that providing a place to both teach and learn was the keystone of the endeavor. To that end, we attracted a mixed group of attendees that ranged from experienced rich media managers to rookies in rich media management trying to better understand how other institutions leverage video in the academic environment and how end users are consuming video in general.

“We will no longer continue to develop Flash Player in the browser to work with new mobile device configurations (chipset, browser, OS version, etc.) following the upcoming release of Flash Player 11.1 for Android and BlackBerry PlayBook.”

It wasn’t very surprising then to see the surge of excited commentary from the HTML and Web Standards community and disappointment felt by avid Flash developers.
