Sonic Foundry Partners with University of London Computer Centre to Offer Cost-Effective Academic Video Solution
LIVERPOOL, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- (UCISA Stand #27) A new partnership between Sonic Foundry, Inc. (SOFO) , the trusted market leader for video management and academic, enterprise and event webcasting, and the University of London Computer Centre, which hosts and develops e-learning services for over 2 million students, allows universities in the United Kingdom to launch cost-effective academic video initiatives with Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform.
More and more universities are using video to enhance all aspects of their operations: learning and teaching, research, administration and marketing, said Richard Maccabee, Director of ULCC. Our partnership with Sonic Foundry further extends our portfolio of learning technology services. With our announcement of an economical and scalable service to support Sonic Foundrys Mediasite webcast technology, we expect more universities to embrace video.
The addition of Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform to ULCCs list of available services allows universities to connect their Mediasite Recorders to a centrally-managed Mediasite webcasting and management platform to record, deliver and manage interactive videos.
Maudsley Learning, which raises knowledge and awareness of mental health and wellbeing through the delivery of technology enabled learning, is the first organization to launch an academic video initiative with Mediasite through this partnership.
Maudsley Learning will use Mediasite via ULCC to live stream and create on-demand video content of educational events, seminars and teaching. This will enable us to deliver Maudsley Learnings strategic vision to provide learning to anyone, anytime and anywhere, said Dr. Sarah-Louise Quinnell, Learning Technology Manager at Maudsley Learning.
The world is a more informed and connected place when the knowledge shared in classrooms is being preserved, and were honored to partner with ULCC to ensure that every higher education institution in the UK has access to a cost-effective solution to achieve this shared vision, said Rob Lipps, executive vice president of Sonic Foundry.
