A comment CIO Ravi Ravishanker consistently heard when Wellesley College hired him nine years ago was that the Massachusetts school needed a new ERP system. The 1,100 employees at the women’s liberal arts college wanted a cloud-based solution that anyone could use.

Research shows that the use of academic video has the potential to dramatically improve teaching and learning. But too often, the use of video on campus is limited to traditional lecture capture, and driving adoption across the institution can be challenging.

This web seminar focused on how to drive video adoption beyond lecture capture, and improve user engagement with higher-quality content. Presenters from Montana State University shared how they adopted a next-generation video platform, improving student engagement and the user experience while gaining buy-in across campus.
