Mediaworks Works with Instructors to Stream Lectures, Provide Web Search

During Winter 2005, the IET-Mediaworks Video/Audio Group worked with a number of instructors to utilize multimedia services as part of their classes. Mediaworks assisted Diana Myles by videotaping and streaming 23 lectures of her Winter BIS 104 Regulation of Cell Function course. Mediaworks also partnered with Automatic Sync Technologies to create Closed Captions for each lecture and provide a Web search function that allows the students to search each streaming lecture by keyword or phrase. The impact of this technology on teaching/learning is being assessed by Barbara Sommers from the Teaching Resources Center.
