Sonic Foundry, Inc., the trusted market leader for lecture capture, enterprise and event webcasting, today announced that its Mediasite webcasting platform is used by San Antonio College, part of one of the largest community college systems in the United States, Alamo Colleges, to train teachers and call center agents more efficiently.
San Antonio College is the largest single-campus community college in Texas and one of the largest in the United States. After years of doing one-time teacher trainings on how to use different types of technology, Mona Aldana-Ramírez, director of retention support services for the college, sought to create an online, searchable video library of the courses. Mediasite was the answer, and Alamo Colleges now has over 60 Mediasite Recorders. Aldana-Ramírez is also working on using Mediasite for lecture capture throughout the disciplines, and for faculty advising. Through on-demand Mediasite webcasts, the college will certify every faculty member on campus to help the students enroll in classes. Faculty will all watch small training modules on their own time.
