MADISON, Wis. — March 11, 2021 — Tech & Learning named Mediasite Mosaic, the personal video capture app, a Best Remote/Blended Learning Tool for Higher Education in 2021.
Mediasite Mosaic is a one-click app that enables teachers, students, trainers and remote workers to have a video studio at their fingertips and manage recordings from web conferencing tools. The Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence judges selected products that they deemed as standouts in the world of virtual learning for students, parents and teachers.
“Despite the many challenges schools have had to face this past year, technology continues to be one of the key drivers for innovation,” said Tech & Learning Group Publisher Christine Weiser in a statement. “The winning products recognized here have supported continuous instruction throughout the pandemic, and we expect this momentum to continue into next year and beyond.”
This award is the latest in a growing list of accolades Mediasite Mosaic has received since its launch in June 2020, including the Best New Lecture Capture/Screen Recording Solution in the Campus Technology 2020 New Product Awards and THE Journal 2020 New Product Awards, as well as the 2020 Future Best of Show InfoComm Special Edition Award by AV Technology.
The app is available in the Mac App Store and Microsoft Store, and when paired with My Mediasite, allows users to create great-looking videos and screencasts. Its easy video capture capabilities combined with its ability to upload and manage video calls is enabling more collaboration at schools and organizations worldwide. Users can easily create powerful communications, lectures, assignments, trainings and more on their Macs or PCs using built-in or external microphones and cameras.
Additionally, as everyone communicates and learns from home, Mediasite Mosaic monitors when new content from tools like Zoom are created locally on a user’s device and gives them the option to automatically upload their recordings to Mediasite. This allows users to manage all of their valuable videos in one secure, searchable place and extends the full functionality of Mediasite to all their content – accessibility features like closed captioning and transcription, robust search, video and caption editing tools, anytime and anywhere publishing, the ability to track viewer engagement and back-end analytics.
“We are honored that our video creation solution Mediasite Mosaic is being recognized by Tech & Learning as a best online learning tool,” said Steve McKee, SVP of Product & Technology, Sonic Foundry, the creator of Mediasite. “The videos being created with Mediasite Mosaic are contributing to the massive year-over-year increases of Mediasite we’ve seen since the start of the pandemic – a 120 percent increase in videos created and a 1,500 percent increase in views. During the spring 2020 semester alone our platform supported 1.4 billion video views.”
