Join TechSmith as we share how educators are using video to make flipped, blended, and online courses more personalized, engaging and effective. Learn how institutions are supporting faculty of all skill levels using a variety of devices to make a human connection with students despite the impersonal nature of video.

Extended Abstract

Video is touted as great for teaching, but it is inherently impersonal, complicated to create and difficult to measure how effective it teaches concepts to students. In addition, faculty, staff, and students have a wide range of skill levels using media technology, from those afraid of it to those who love to experiment. Add to the mix individual preferences for different operating systems and devices. How do you meet everyone’s unique needs? Come learn how TechSmith customers are enabling all instructors to create personalized video content.
