Don’t let yourself be a streaming castaway.

As the solutions that enable online video in the enterprise continue to evolve, your organization must be careful in picking the technology you use for streaming video. With one misstep, you could find yourself stranded on a lonely island of webcasting with a solution that leaves you feeling lost at sea.

In a world where stand-alone solutions historically have defined the webcasting market, the emergence of platforms that leverage open application program ...

Are Concerns about Intellectual Property Blocking Adoption of Lecture Capture?

Posted by:

By: Alan D. Greenberg

Everyone knows one or more of the many stereotypes in the world of academics.

Most individuals recognize the image of the absent-minded prof. Many educators are familiar with the eager beaver assistant prof who easily gravitates to emerging technologies. Still more recognize the grumpy professor with elbow patches on his jacket and pipe in mouth who looks down on the idea of bringing new technology into the classroom.

Indeed, the “grumpy” set presents a huge roadblock to introducing lecture ...

Do you remember how you learned to ride a bike?

If so, you have a great head start on figuring out how to encourage broader usage of streaming video within your organization.

My hunch is that you just didn’t hop on your shiny new Schwinn when you were a kid to start pedaling down the street. If you’re anything like me, you spent quite a bit of time bouncing along with training wheels while you got the hang of ...

By: Steve Vonder Haar

Please accept my condolences: You’ve just deployed video in the enterprise.

Video itself is not such a bad thing. But once you’ve put your budget (and possibly your future employment prospects) on the line for video, your next challenge is convincing everyone else in your organization that you’ve spent the company’s money wisely.

That task is tougher than it may sound. After all, there’s more than one way to gauge the impact that video has on business operations. In ...

By: Alan D. Greenberg

Oh my, how the times have changed.

At least that’s the case when we start thinking about how the world’s outlook towards distance learning has evolved through the years.

Consider, for instance, how folks viewed distance learning back in the days when Bill Clinton was still U.S. president. Back then – all the way back to 1999 – Dr. Thomas L. Russell of North Carolina State University conducted a comprehensive review of 355 research studies on distance learning. The ...

Posted by:

By: Alan D. Greenberg

If you want to know about the future of technology in education, it may pay to take a step back and re-visit what you know about The Big Bang Theory.

Whether you are familiar with the physics world and the concept that the universe was created billions of years ago, or watch the highly-rated TV show about a bunch of oddball science-oriented geeks trying to make it in the world, you know there are a lot of physics ...

Sometimes, even technology industry buzz can feel like warmed-over leftovers.

At least that’s the way I feel when I begin hearing people gush about: “The Internet of Things” – seemingly the trend du jour following Google’s move earlier this year to buy technology provider Nest in a deal valued at $3.2 billion.

Since then, it seems like people have 3.2 billion reasons to fuss over the implications of an emerging set of technology applications that make it possible to ...
