EduComm 2009 Selects Sonic Foundry as Conference Webcasting Partner

Attendees will have access to Mediasite catalog of all conference sessions

MADISON, Wis., June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sonic Foundry, Inc. (Nasdaq: SOFO), the recognized market leader for rich media webcasting and knowledge management, today announced the company's Titanium Sponsorship of EduComm 2009, the premier higher education technology conference to be held June 16-18 at the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes Resort in Orlando, Fla. All sessions will be captured and archived with the Mediasite platform.

EduComm 2009 brings together top-tier thought leaders, executives and speakers to present, discuss, consider and navigate the unprecedented challenges and opportunities shaping the future of higher education. Traditionally focused on classroom technology and rich media, EduComm has added workshops to help education executives keep pace with trends in the current generation. Five dynamic keynote sessions include speakers on cloud computing, sustainability and social networking. Attendees will depart equipped with practical tools for success, including a link to a Mediasite presentation catalog containing more than 40 breakout sessions in four tracks that address technology issues and best practices.

"Having the archived webcast of these sessions has been invaluable to our attendees. It's the next best thing to being there live. They can catch the speakers' emphasis and subtleties, which are all very important in the learning process. Mediasite offers the added capability of allowing them to replay key moments to enhance the understanding of concepts or to skip through presentations to find just what they want to see," said Tim Goral, conference program chair for EduComm 2009. "As the Titanium sponsor, Sonic Foundry has offered crucial help in creating a wealth of learning materials for EduComm attendees that they can turn to again and again throughout the year. Their partnership over the years has been invaluable."

A catalog of select sessions will be available for on-demand viewing after the conference that will include:

  • How Lecture Capture Enhances Student Performance, panel discussion with Sean Brown, Sonic Foundry vice president of education, James Craig, Ed.D. professor University of Maryland Baltimore Dental School and Russ Scaduto, Ph.D. director of educational technology, Penn State Hershey Medical Center
