Eclipse Live Streaming Project – Part 5

This is our last installment before the actual eclipse. We’re less than 24 hours away from the event and we’re just wrapping up the finishing touches, doing one last test. As expected, the Panasonic AW-360C10 arrived on Sunday. We had learned a lot about the camera over the previous 48 hours and were ready to […]

Eclipse Live Streaming Project – Part 4

Access to the rooftop is restricted and must be managed carefully. A whole team has been working on this project, which includes videographers and engineers. Having the vision to do this is one thing. Implementing it is another thing entirely. The team has been working tirelessly to set up equipment and run the necessary cabling […]

Eclipse Live Streaming Project – Part 3

The Allie camera from IC Real Tech is certainly a strange beast. I think it can best be described as a camera for security and monitoring. While not designed for outdoor use, I can see it being set up in your home for your security system or to keep an eye on your baby. It’s […]

Eclipse Live Streaming Project – Part 2

Delivering video on the web generally bifurcates into two realms: synchronous and asynchronous, also sometimes called live and on-demand. By and large, when you’re watching video online, you’re watching asynchronous or on-demand video. This is video that was previously recorded and then uploaded for you to watch at your leisure, be it a vlog on […]

Eclipse Live Streaming Project – Part 1

We’ve been gearing up for this eclipse for a long time. While some may be coming to the realization that there’s an impending eclipse a little late to the game, we’ve been exploring our options since 2016. Very few groups on campus (or nationally, frankly) are as well positioned as we are to make a […]

8 Tips for Lecture Capture on a Shoestring

I was recently interviewed for a piece in Campus Technology about “8 Tips for Lecture Capture on a Shoestring”. It was one of my favorite interviews. Very affable and very broad, covering a number of topics. It resulted in an extensive feature from Dian Schaffhauser, which you can read here.

Vidcon: Transforming Education with Online Video

Last week I had the privilege of moderating a panel at Vidcon titled “Transforming Education with Online Video”. The panel was a stunning array of thought leaders in educational online video, and included Noel Waghorn, Lead Producer/Writer for the Reactions channel at the American Chemical Society, Malik Ducard, Global Head of Family and Learning at […]

The Lecture Capture Report

Lecture capture is an important part of any higher education institutions media infrastructure. It can also mean a lot of things. In the context of this report, we’re talking about recording lectures in the classroom and making them available online after the fact. We’ve seen no shortage of inquiries over the years from our colleagues […]

History in a Box

We’ve been cleaning out the old studio in Kidder Hall as we prepare to turn over the space to New Media Communications. As materials are shipped away to Surplus, we unearth some ancient artifacts, some much older than this one artifact pictured here. But few are more relevant to my current occupation. This is an […]

The Kaltura Ecosystem at Oregon State University

I did a webinar with Kaltura yesterday where I spoke about lessons learned from our (“successful”) deployment of Kaltura at OSU. I put “successful” in quotes only because it took some time to get to the point where we are today. We’ve been with Kaltura for 6 years and we’re very satisfied with the product […]
