A turbulent environment – student tuition fees, a rise in living costs and alternative work based routes are driving universities to differentiate themselves in new ways.
The new customer – the demands of the 21st century student are distinct and different. The mobile generation expect their university experience to be available online.
Beyond lecture capture – universities need to rethink their digital video libraries by segmenting long-form content, comprehensive tagging and offering access on any device.
Video technology is becoming simpler – advances in computing mean that video can now be processed, stored and delivered cost effectively and with increasingly impressive performance.
