Educause 2014: Year of the Consortium Video Platform

By on September 17, 2014
We are stoked for Educause 2014 in Orlando!

We’re predicting this will be the “Year of the Consortium Video Platform”. We’ve been seeing a huge increase in cooperative technology management and media sharing across multiple institutions. It makes so much sense. Why spend more, when you can share infrastructure and pay less for the same education video platform?

We will  be moderating an informative panel discussion Wednesday afternoon, with learning technologists from the New York Six Liberal Arts Consortium (NY6).

This presentation comes on the heels of a similar session we took part in at Campus Technology in Boston with NY6 and State University of New York (SUNY) educators and media specialists. Make sure you check out the Campus Technology article based on that session: When YouTube Isn’t Enough To Manage Your Campus Video Content

Going to Educause? Stop by booth #158 in the exhibit hall and talk to us about our cloud-hosted, self-hosted, and multi-tenant private cloud solutions. And don’t shop for a video platform without checking out the NY6 session:
