Up-Coming Webinars On Using Video in Your Teaching

Over the past two weeks I have shared a couple of messages related to way of using video in your face-to-face and online courses.  First it was an item focused on different resources for creating instructional videos, specifically using the Kaltura video recorder and editor that is embedded into Canvas.  Second it was a report from Kaltura that provided a guide to the state of video in education.

Below I wanted to pass along notices of two up-coming webinars focused on this theme.  The first is from Kaltura and is actually focused on the report that I shared last week.  The second is from MediaSite, which  thought might be of interest given its use at both TUC and TUN.

As always, if you have any questions about using video or Kaltura in any of your Canvas courses, please contact Jim O’Connor or myself.

Subject: Webinar: Highlights of the State of Video in Education Report

Webinar: How Educational Institutions Are Using Video – Insights from the 2019 Report
Video is everywhere in education—not only changing the way we teach and learn, but how we communicate, collaborate, build communities, and extend our reach. As today’s digital natives increasingly expect video in every aspect of their lives, educational institutions are rising to meet the demand, using video in ever more effective and creative ways. 

Kaltura released its sixth annual report on the State of Video in Education July 9. The report is based on responses from over 1,400 participants and is the most comprehensive report on the subject to-date; it covers video usage, perception, and trends in education around the world. In this webinar, get a closer look at the report’s highlights and the lessons that can be drawn. With a substantial Q&A session at the end, you’ll have a chance to get all your questions answered.
