In 2009, The University of Michigan Ross School of Business opened the doors to a new era of learning designed to enhance the digital culture that defines student life. Every room in the state-of-the-art 27,000 square foot building – from the large auditoriums to the intimate collaborative spaces – was equipped to support the most seamless use of integrated technologies while becoming a model of student learning efficiencies.
Now integral in every function of the school, room-based lecture capture technology is used not only for recording traditional classroom instruction, but also webcasting interviews with The New York Times, faculty panels and even recruitment with prospective students. Edward Adams, chief technology officer at the school and Sean Brown, vice president of education at Sonic Foundry, will discuss the decision-making process that helped the school get more faculty, classes and programs online faster with room-based video streaming.
Presenters: Sean Brown, vice president of education at Sonic Foundry, and Edward Adams, chief technology officer at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business
