Micro-Learning: Building a Just-in-Time Learning Infrastructure

3:00-3:30

 

Speaker: 

Jodie Bartz – Business Analyst, Mayo Clinic

Traditional teaching and learning has got to go. Today’s employees don’t have time or patience for yesterday’s classes, workshops, and all-day training sessions. What they really want is a way to get the specific information they need, right when they need it. They want it to be easy to find, easy to consume, and easy to use right away. That’s why forward-thinking companies are turning to micro-learning—it’s cheaper, more efficient, and ultimately more effective.

The Mayo Clinic needs to keep thousands of employees and patients across multiple facilities up-to-date on the latest research, treatment plans, and advice in a field that can change daily. Whether it’s a doctor looking to brush up on the details of a procedure or a patient who needs to understand their follow-up plan, the Mayo Clinic’s audience has one thing in common. They don’t have time to sift through hours of materials to find the info they need, and they can’t wait for some workshop a week or a month later. They need exactly the right information, right now. See how the Mayo Clinic has perfected micro-learning. Why does it work so well? What are tips for creating and managing so many pieces of content? Get real examples of how micro-learning is being used today and learn how you can make micro learning work for your employees.

Managing the Enterprise Video Lifecycle: A Roadmap for a Successful and Scalable Strategy

3:00 – 3:30pm

 

Speaker:

David Boyll – Senior Director, Media Technology, Oracle

Video is an integral part of business. What used to work for one-off projects and small scale production can no longer keep up with the content demands of your large enterprise. When your organization produces video at scale, how do you store and share it all? Keep assets current and retire obsolete ones? Regulate access by role? Measure success?

 

Learn how Oracle leverages their MarTech stack to manage the video lifecycle and create maximum value for their production spend. Please bring your questions about:

  • Video creation (EGC/UGC, Field production, Studio infrastructure)
  • Live Streaming
  • Editing
  • Organizing repositories and managing assets
  • Publishing for an optimized viewing experience
  • Providing analytics to business owners and setting success goals
  • Storage management
  • Retention polices, archiving and retirement

How do you develop an enterprise video strategy that will scale with you? I’ll give you a hint: It’s not all about the technology. 😉

Video in Education

Learning happens best when content is engaging, interactive, accessible, and personal. From primary school into higher education, today’s learners increasingly turn to video first. Hear from peers from educational institutions about how they’re using Kaltura and how they are innovating with video; from classroom capture to learning analytics, from interactive video to accessibility, from VR/XR to expectations around video literacy.  Video is at the heart of creating learning experiences that matter.

Enterprise Learning

Video has played a major role in enterprise learning for a while, but today’s learners have higher expectations, greater needs, and far less time than ever before. How can L&D teams determine the right learning strategy for them and the role of video in it? How can they ensure their employees have access to all the information they need when they need it? Find out how your peers from enterprise learning teams continuously innovate and leverage big video in the service of higher engagement. Explore the latest trends in enterprise learning across industries, from interactivity to micro-learning. Take a look at the role of video in creating experience-rich learning environments in which video content, technology, and analytics are the key drivers in the design of personal learning experiences. Turn your employees into learners.

Communication and Collaboration

As the Digital Transformation changes the workplace, we’ve gone from a physical, local, 9-to-5 office to a virtual, global, 24/7 experience. Video helps connect people in a way that’s still personal and effective. But today’s communications channels are converging. We used to use different tools for live and on-demand, 1-to-1 chats and full broadcasts, intranet/extranet/internet communications. Now, employees increasingly expect tools that will span across use cases, from executive communications to team organization to collaborating with colleagues. Find out how to navigate the shifting video tech landscape. Leverage video and live broadcasts to connect global teams, establish authentic leadership, and organize knowledge management. See how other organizations like yours are driving effective organizational collaboration and knowledge sharing at scale. It’s time to build a video communications strategy.

Media and Telecom

In the midst of the streaming war, the highly dynamic TV and video landscape is being rocked by new mergers and acquisitions, changing the media and telecom industry. But one thing is clear: streaming is cementing its place as the new TV. Streaming brings along disruptive market offerings serving the rapidly changing consumer demands. Find out how TV and video service providers are adopting smarter data strategies and scalable cloud technologies. Industry leaders will discuss ways to leverage the opportunities of today’s market. Join us to learn how to establish sustainable services and stay ahead of the competition in a market that’s on the move.

Video Technology

Discover how to better leverage the Kaltura platform, whether it’s taking advantage of built-in features, customizing with APIs, or building your own video workflows with Kaltura’s Video-Platform-as-a-Service.

Get deep dives into some of the hottest topics, including search, video analytics, and video players. Trade recipes, and get a deeper understanding of the Kaltura Media Services and Video SDKs.
