Sonic Foundry Webcasts Conference on Distance Teaching & Learning

Keynotes and select sessions to be live streamed via Mediasite

MADISON, Wis. — August 07, 2012 — Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO), the trusted market leader for video management and academic, enterprise and event webcasting, today announced the company’s Mediasite platform will be used to live webcast the 28th Annual Conference on Distance Teaching & Learning, held this week at the Monona Terrace and Convention Center in Madison, Wis. 

The conference, held August 8 to 10, is in its 28th year, the longest consecutive conference in distance education. It’s recognized internationally for the quality and integrity of the program and provides an exchange of current resources, research and best practices relevant to distance education and training. The conference has been using Mediasite to record and archive select sessions for three years, and this year has expanded to offer two virtual events, one focused on program administration and one on international perspectives, streaming sessions live and offering real-time interaction between face-to-face and online participants.  All registered attendees will also be able to watch recorded sessions after the conference on-demand from their desktops. 

“For more than a quarter of a century the Conference on Distance Teaching & Learning has given educators a place to share research and best practices. In this era, no distance education conference is complete without a virtual option to attend. Our attendees participate from across the country and around the world, and webcasting the conference via Mediasite allows people to participate regardless of time and location,” said Jane Terpstra, conference director. “Mediasite makes this possible, and we’re excited to continue our long-term partnership with Sonic Foundry.”  

Trusted by more than 1,000 colleges and universities, the patented Mediasite webcasting and video content management system quickly and cost-effectively automates the capture, management, delivery and search of live and on-demand streaming videos and rich media presentations that combine video with slides.
