What could not be ignored this year was the huge number of video solutions exhibiting. There seemed to be one every other stand… Of the big players, we saw Kaltura, Streamitup, Panopto and Echo360 among others and talked with the latter two at some length.
They both have comprehensive video solutions which go far above and beyond lecture capture. Video in education is entering a new phase of acceptance, even though it has been around for quite some time. Most institutions are now aware of the immense value video brings to education. RepresentEdTech works with UNICAM, an excellent system for Moodle institutions which are looking for a scaled-back lecture capture and distribution system with built-in accessibility and privacy. Institutions looking for something more in-depth or which is going to be used in another LMS would do well to look at Panopto and Echo360.
