Sonic Foundry (News - Alert) has partnered with EduComm to launch first fully-live hybrid conference for knowledge management services. EduComm is an annual technology and leadership conference attended by 400 colleges and universities nationwide.
Officials with Sonic Foundry, a knowledge management provider, pointed out that the company will once again use the Mediasite platform to webcast all sessions of EduComm 2011.
According to company officials, for the first time in Sonic Foundry's eight-year partnership with EduComm all sessions will be streamed live to an online audience, including two full days of pre-conference tracks, all keynotes and five concurrent tracks.
"Each year with Sonic Foundry's webcasting expertise, EduComm takes another step into the virtual world. This is the first year we're going full force with a live stream of our event and we're very excited about it," said Stephanie Martinez, CIO of University Business, in a statement.
"To reach our goal of educating our members through quality content and growing the virtual audience, we've more than tripled the number of sessions we're offering," said Martinez.
"While we're capable of using Mediasite on our own for smaller events throughout the year, when it comes to EduComm our event staff needs support to capture multiple concurrent breakout sessions, keynote sessions and two full-day pre-conference events,” she said.
Martinez said that Sonic Foundry Event Services provides with a project manager and the technical support to stream, host and report engagement on all of the conference content.
“Mediasite also allows us to achieve a high level of engagement with our virtual attendees," she added.
