Bloomsburg Webinar

For the past six years, with Mediasite as the backbone of its video initiative, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania has recorded everything happening on campus. Classroom projects, student teachers on the job, role-playing activities, campus events, lectures for flipped instruction, faculty research and focus group discussions are all recorded and rolled into one video management and creation platform.

Now, it’s going a step further with a streamlined user-generated content strategy and a multi-perspective video feature which adds real-life dimension and serves to deepen engagement for any live or on-demand video.
