Mediasite Announces Advanced Integration with Zoom for Hybrid Learning

Mediasite is central destination for all Zoom recordings; new streamlined LMS integration in Mediasite gives users more control over what collaborative content is recorded and routed to Mediasite

Madison, WI(16 Jun 2020)

Mediasite announces an advanced integration with Zoom to make it easier than ever before to deliver hybrid learning to students this fall.

 

“Web and video conference systems like Zoom, WebEx and Teams are being used prolifically by schools from primary to collegiate levels to facilitate the new normal for teaching and learning,” said Elizabeth Collins, SVP of Sonic Foundry, maker of Mediasite. “The coming academic year will include an essential mix of flipped lectures and real-time discussions delivered live with video technology like Mediasite and collaborative conferencing tools. Mediasite recognizes that the market dynamics are rapidly changing in this new world, and we are committed to evolving and innovating to meet the ever changing needs. The latest Mediasite-Zoom integration gives users more ubiquitous ability to record content, schedule recordings and decide what content will most benefit from the full functionality of being uploaded into Mediasite.”

 

Scale video use with more administrative functionality

Schools are creating massive amounts of educational videos. However, not every meeting needs to be recorded. The advanced integration, which expands on Mediasite’s already popular Zoom Marketplace App, allows for a more seamlessly and automatic workflow between Zoom, Mediasite and a school’s LMS.

 

The latest integration creates the following, streamlined workflow for hybrid learning:

  • The Zoom meeting is scheduled, and the instructor decides whether it should be sent to Mediasite. The instructor also has the option to tag it with the appropriate LMS course.
  • Instructors and students meet in person and via Zoom for live lectures and/or collaborative discussions.
  • The Zoom recordings are automatically uploaded into the appropriate course folder in Mediasite alongside their other valuable videos. Mediasite distributes the lecture to students directly in their LMS where they are most comfortable.
  • Any captions created by Zoom will automatically be migrated to Mediasite allowing your imported video to be accessible to students.

 

This allows all video content to be managed in one secure and searchable place in Mediasite.

 

Plus, the Zoom recordings benefit from the full functionality of Mediasite – accessibility tools

like closed captioning and transcription capabilities, robust search, video and caption editing tools, anytime and anywhere publishing, interactivity options to track viewer engagement and back-end analytics.

 

Look for this latest Mediasite-Zoom integration in time to be up and running for the fall

semester. Stay tuned for more announcements to come, additional enhancements are in design for later in the year. Mediasite is a highly-automated and integrated video platform that facilitates hybrid learning in this new digital-first world.
