Trends in the use of video
Posted on June 18th, 2014
Kaltura Connect conference
6/17-18/2014, Time-Warner Center, New York
Among the many themes presented in the conference two themes were prominent in many sessions:
- The video experience is increasingly a unified event across interconnected devices: phones, tablets, and TV. Video will also see the continued convergence of live vs. recorded and more links between social media and the traditional TV experience.
- Education has become one of the major users of video to disseminate content. Video is used to promote the university and the university faculty. Uses in education range for remote learning, practice sections, archive lectures, online quizzes, etc. Increasingly video is becoming more interactive and used as a teaching archive. Expansion of schools such as the Southern New Hampshire University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University show how much remote learning has grown.
The conference also had interesting presentations on how wearable technology and unmanned aerial vehicles (a.k.a. drones) will change our view of ourselves, the world, and the video experience.
