Why go live? Brian Smith asks why not. As the Video Operations Supervisor for University of Florida, he's been doing live streaming on campus for 11 years, with hundreds of live webcasts under his belt. And he believes going live was integral to the success of lecture capture on campus.

Join him as he shares what you need to know about live webcasting and synchronous lecture capture, including:

  • What do you look for in a reliable webcasting system when live is a requirement and failure is not an option?
  • Are there differences between live webcasting from a smart classroom vs. hundreds of campus event venues vs. off campus sites? And what are the best practices for making sure all go live without a hitch?
  • Why is live webcasting a self-fulfilling prophecy, driving more demand to go live? And does social media play a role?

Presenter: Brian Smith is the Video Operations Supervisor for Academic Technology and Information Technology at the University of Florida.

Moderator: Sean Brown, vice president of education for Sonic Foundry
