The following post is from Lisa Bennett, Senior Director of Public Relations & Marketing at Kaltura. As a Premier Partner of Blackboard, we are delighted to be part of BbWorld again this year. No doubt that this is the year’s biggest event for “all things Blackboard” and our EDU team will be there in full force. We have all sorts of activities planned, so make sure to stop by our Booth #129 and catch a demo of the new version of our Video Building Block for Blackboard. The Video Building Block will be coming out in a few weeks, in time for the conference. You can also check out a live demo of our ‘Campus YouTube’ application – Kaltura MediaSpace, which provides universities and educational institutions with their own private video portal, and more. In addition to stopping by booth 129 to meet the team, you are invited to participate in our session about how video is becoming a key to learning and engaging students across campus. Below is the description of our session and what we will discuss. We hope to see you there! In the meantime – you can learn more about the Kaltura Video Building Block for Blackboard, start a free trial, or download our recent case study with Indiana University/Purdue University – Fort Wayne. Design and Launch A Complete Cross-Campus Media Suite – 1:50pm – July 11th, Room 398 Online rich-media is becoming a necessity in today’s learning environment. More and more universities and educational institutions are using online media for on and off-campus education, training, assignment enhancement, and as a means of collaboration between students and faculty and more. This presentation will explore how video and new forms of multimedia-enabled learning are revolutionizing education within the Blackboard platform and beyond (faculty training, creating a “Campus Tube”, marketing, and live events). Join Kaltura’s experts as we cover best practices for deploying online video across the organization and speak on the many advantages that leading educational institutions are already experiencing. We will cover many examples including Cornell University, NYU, and Oregon State University.
