    Upcoming EdTech Webinars You Should Add to Your Calendar

    March 27, 2019

    Want to learn more about the vast potential for video in higher education? Tune in to these two live webinars that focus on how you can use video technology to enhance teaching and learning on campus.

    The first webinar is tomorrow and highlights the importance of integrating academic video into a learning management system like Canvas.

    3 Ways to Effectively Use Video in Canvas

    1-1:30 pm CT March 28

    Canvas is a critical part of the teaching and learning strategy on many campuses. And, because faculty and students are increasingly realizing the benefits of academic video, so is Mediasite.

    Wouldn’t it make sense if those two systems intertwined? Actually, they do – seamlessly, and if you’re not embedding all those videos directly into the place students learn best, you’re missing out on valuable interactivity tools and student data.

    In this webinar join technical training lead Michael Stefonik as he shows you how to create and manage video content within Canvas. He’ll share how to use Mediasite’s analytics to gauge effectiveness, without jumping back and forth between systems. You’ll learn how to:

    • Easily record, upload and share videos in Canvas
    • Search, play and interact with embedded videos
    • Use the data to measure progress and give real-time feedback on students’ understanding
    • Plus, hear what Mediasite features are in store for Canvas, like student video assignment submission and grading

    Next week’s webinar is presented by The Campus Computing Project Founder Casey Green. He’ll explore the challenges that confront campus CIOs and IT officers and their priorities for 2019 and beyond.

    Top Campus IT Priorities for 2019 and Beyond

    11-11:30 am CT April 4

    What do you get when you combine all the hot educational buzzwords – digital learning, digital accessibility, the cloud, artificial intelligence, and analytics – with higher education’s ever-present budget woes and need for far more faculty tech training? A perfect storm of analytic angst, security concerns, and slow-moving, less-than-eager faculty willing to try new things absent real evidence that the “new” makes a difference in student learning and outcomes.

    Campus leaders must offer a clear vision for navigating this turbulent environment, plus training, support resources, and guidelines around these technologies.  The goal, of course, is to leverage current and coming technology and digital pedagogies to enhance student success and improve student learning and institutional outcomes.

    You’ll learn:

    • Digital accessibility and cloud security concerns
    • Assisting faculty with tech to promote greater adoption
    • Assessing IT’s impact on learning outcomes (only 16% of CIOs indicated their campuses do assessment)
    • Changing the data culture, because analytics = more engagement = more personalized learning
