October 21, 2016

Sonic Foundry is the Platinum Sponsor of EDUCAUSE, and Mediasite will stream select sessions from the EDUCAUSE 2016 Annual Conference next week.

The conference, which takes place Oct. 25-28 in Anaheim, Calif., is the premier gathering for higher education IT professionals, exploring today’s toughest technology issues facing higher education globally. EDUCAUSE began streaming sessions via Mediasite in 2005.

“EDUCAUSE trusts Mediasite to deliver a best-in-class, turn-key streaming solution to bring many elements of our events to life,” said Jim Burnett, Senior Manager, Strategic Sales and Business Development. “This year is no exception, with Mediasite streaming engaging content from our Learning Theater at our Annual Conference. We want our members to have inspiring conversations about global topics all year, not just at the conference, and the on-demand library of Mediasite videos keeps people talking.”

“EDUCAUSE’s mission mirrors our own – advancing higher education through information technology,” said Rob Lipps, Executive Vice President, Sonic Foundry. “It’s an honor to have been EDUCAUSE’s trusted partner for 12 years, helping it create a successful video strategy to educate its members about emerging trends and technologies. We look forward to our continued relationship with EDUCAUSE.”

On-site attendees can see Mediasite in action and learn about the latest developments at Sonic Foundry’s booth 1713.
