Webcasting solution boosts education

Webcasting can be used in a variety of ways and in a wide range of sectors. But whether the technology is used in academia, the enterprise or in government, it offers the ability to improve educational initiatives.

This is evident in the recent of Marquette University, which recently announced that its robust plans for webcasting are paying dividends. The Marquette University Law School has been using webcasting technology to host a variety of discussions on political issues in an effort to educate its students in light of the upcoming election. According to a release detailing the project, the technology has helped expand the audience for the events.

Marquette University Law School first began hosting discussions on key local political issues in 2007 and has been able to reach a large number of people by opening webcasts to the public. Approximately 100 discussions featuring a variety of experts have been made available online. Furthermore, videos are available live, but also in an archive that leaves them to be viewed at a later date.

These videos have allowed a diverse range of people to gain access to information and opinions that would not otherwise be accessible to them. Businesses can similarly expand the reach of their educational initiatives by depending more on webcasting.

An enterprise video program that includes webcasting can be used to make educational meetings, policy-related presentations and similar events available to a wider range of workers. As a result, they are able to improve employee training, establish new policies more efficiently and better engage workers in their day-to-day operations. This can help create new revenue by empowering employees, making them more productive and efficient on an ongoing basis.
