This Week In Ideas Shared With a Panopto Video — October 3, 2014
Panopto’s mission is to democratize knowledge sharing with video. To expand access to video beyond the realm of the technical experts and the dedicated production environments — and make it possible for anyone with a thought to share to just press “record”.
For schools and universities, that means real, flexible lecture capture — video that meets the needs of recording the classroom, as well as enabling close-up demonstrations, mini “flipped-classroom” recorded lectures, virtual office hours where students can find recorded answers to common questions, and more. The teacher, not the technology, decides how video can contribute to the classroom.
For businesses and organizations, democratization opens the door to making a more compelling case — recording presentations to supplement proposals, including video to make corporate communications more engaging, simplifying executive communications without requiring production specialists, and creating a social learning platform that any employee can use to share best practices, institutional knowledge, and strategic insights with their peers.
Video is changing the way we teach, learn, and share ideas — giving everyone the chance to go beyond text and instead tap into the power of video to share ideas, make cases, and present information.
This week we saw more educational and entertaining recordings among the latest presentations shared online with Panopto. And in the spirit of passing it on, these are just a few of the ideas shared this week with Panopto’s video recording software.
Hear from Dr Andrew Howard of SickKids Hospital and the University of Toronto on the leading road traffic-related causes of injury among children in this recorded presentation. Dr Howard looks not only at automobile safety measures, but also at what can be done to help make kids safer while walking and riding their bicycles.
Much study has been devoted to what drives political participation. Those studies consider non-participation to be simply the failure of participation strategies. But what if that’s not really the case? Sit in with the University of Kent for this instructional recording that challenges the assumption of political non-participation as apathy and instead considers whether other factors may truly be at play.
Blood clotting within a vein can lead to life-threatening problems. In today’s surgical and healthcare practices, careful attention is paid to assessing the risk of this kind of clotting, commonly referred to as venous thromboembolism, or VTE. See just all of the care and planning that goes into assessing the risk of VTE and ensuring patients are given full preventative and restorative care, in this flipped classroom video shared by Jefferson University Hospital’s Dr Geno Merli.
With November’s elections quickly approaching, what are the issues that are influencing this year’s campaigns and how will they impact the final outcome on Election Day? Join the Duke University Office of Public Affairs and Government Relations, along with Duke in Washington and the Forum for Scholars and Publics, for this discussion series that looks at issues central to the midterm elections. Each week the panel — recorded live both on-location in North Carolina and remotely Washington DC discusses the details of educational policy that will drive the results of the next electoral cycle.
Join the computer science students at Carnegie Mellon for another installment of the school’s 7 Databases in 7 Weeks recorded lecture series. This week the class looks into In-Memory OLTP, also known as Hekataon. In-Memory OLTP offers potential for database performance gains from 2-25x — learn just how it all works from data architect Mike Zwilling.
