A major shift is taking place in education largely influenced by new technological and pedagogical trends. For example, classrooms are increasingly opening up to rich media content, subject experts, and to peer learning. Video is a key contributor to the shift, acting as a powerful agent that adds value and enhances the quality of the learning experience. The impact of video in education can be observed in key three areas: engagement, knowledge transfer and memory / interactivity with content.

The one-hour webinar will focused on the question: how is the use of video in education evolving and what trends should we expect for the near future? Specifically, we will hear from two individuals immersed in the field: Michal Tsur from Kaltura and Matthew McCurdy from Sonic Foundry.
