UNIFIED CAMPUS TEAMS RETREAT

  1. 1. Integrating Video Conferencing and Streaming in your Learning Environment Russ Scaduto, Ph.D. Associate Professor Director of Education Technology Penn State Hershey
  2. 2. Background: Our Setting in Hershey • 500-bed hospital, 20+ off-site clinics, 1,800 nurses, ~850 faculty and physicians, 495 medical students, 505 medical residents, 350 graduate students, ~9,000 employees. • Tremendous educational needs • We have been starting to use more advanced approaches to store, manage and deliver educational content using a host of different technologies.
  3. 3. Technologies  Several technologies are used together, some separately. The decision is based on the intended use of the educational material.  “H.323” Conferencing, aka, Polycom. A tool for live point-to-point (or multipoint) video conferencing.  PSU ANGEL (A New Global Environment for Learning), the PSU CMS.  Mediasite, a product of Sonic Foundry. A tool for lecture/presentation capture and archiving. Also great for streaming webcasts.  Adobe Acrobat Connect. A tool for desktop sharing, conferencing and distance education.  V-Brick encoding and Portal Server (HMC MediaNet). A tool for Windows Media and MPEG-2 video recording, archiving and streaming.  AMX touch control panels. Used for system automation, component integration and simplification.
  4. 4. Education Technology I believe technology increases the value of data, so that it becomes information.  Data is not useful unless it can be organized and shared. Then it becomes information.  The better it is organized, the more values it has. Technology allows educational content to be “repackaged” to provide students with a variety of means to experience and learn content.  Technology also allows content to be viewed from remote locations and shared between distant sites.  Technology also allows content to be enduring.  Streaming technologies provide content security.
  5. 5. Recording and Archiving Lectures • Mediasite (Sonic Foundry, Inc.) used to record and archive all “large-room” lectures to 1st year medical students (154 students). 2nd year students added in January, 2008. • Teaching faculty could elect to not participate. The “default” was to record their lecture. • Lecture recording (start, stop, publish) was automated through a central schedule. • Access to recordings was restricted (via Active Directory) to: – Class of 2011, Class of 2012 – Participating Faculty Members – Selected Administrators (3) – Selected A/V Staff (3) • Podcast of lectures also available (MP3 file, audio only) through RSS.

  11. 11. Integration of Lecture Capture with Video Conferencing • In several conference rooms, we have integrated Mediasite with Polycom conferencing systems, to essentially provide the “best of both worlds”. • Interactive “live” Lectures can be presented between remote locations (Polycom) and the presentation captured (Sonic Foundry, Inc.) for later on-demand viewing. This is used for Hershey-PSU UP classes and for Department-Clinic conferences. • The various options in a lecture room are selectable via an AMX control panel.

  18. 18. What’s Next for Us? • Enhanced opportunities for OR conferencing with Residents and Surgery staff. • On-line patient education, in the hospital room and on the web. • Better systems to track staff education and credentialing, e.g., Learning Management System. • Better infrastructure to develop education content in-house. Moving beyond PowerPoint to interactive learning objects. • Developing a Simulation Laboratory as part of a Learning Center.
