Mediasite allows students to view their classes live or on-demand and helps reduce the distancing associated with online classes. With Mediasite, students can access previous class lectures throughout the semester. This on-demand viewing makes it really nice for the student that has to juggle employment, family and education. Mediasite is lecture-capture software. It has limited interaction options for students. Students can ask questions and take part in polls but it is not a stand-alone educational tool. Many instructors are combining other interactive tools such as WIMBA and Skype during their class sessions to provide the element of interaction among classmates. Mediasite was fully implemented at ENMU in the Fall of 2011 and is now frequently used by many online classes. Look for classes with an SW section when registering for a Mediasite class.
