These are my notes from David Rogers’ presentation at the ODLA 28 April 2008 spring meeting in Oklahoma City. My thoughts and comments are in ALL CAPS.

Communication / Collaboration tools
– web collaboration
– video conferencing
– live and on demand rich media streaming (limited interactivity)

we capture audio, video, and any presentation materials

Accordent was founded in 1999, is still managed by all original founders
– have been profitable since 2001
– this is not
– headquartered in Los Angeles

Accordent creates hardware and software solutions for automating the capture, editing, and management of multimedia presentations on the web

Why use classroom capture technology?
– meet student demand for online class review, without burdening staff and faculty
– increase interactivity during class
– assist studetns who were unable to attend class
– preserve the knowledge of faculty
– extend your reach via distance learning programs
– one more…

What is the viewer experience?

– VGA images
