Wentworth Video Portal Soft Launch

Learning Innovation & Technology in collaboration with the Douglas D. Schumann Library & Learning Commons and College of Professional and Continuing Education is pleased to announce the soft launch of the Wentworth Institute of Technology’s MediaSpace Video Portal.

The portal is part of an ambitious goal to unite the video needs of faculty and students into a single streaming environment.

The portal will allow faculty to create content that extends teaching, learning, and collaboration beyond the classroom walls.  For example:

  • Create content that accommodates various learning styles
  • Create and capture desktop lectures to enhance student retention and engagement
  • Create flipped content to support active learning and reflective activities
  • Capture guest speakers and subject matter experts to share real world perspectives

According to the recent campus-wide video needs assessment survey, over 97% of respondents say that video is helpful with increasing satisfaction of students from their learning experience.  In addition, 89% of say that video is helpful with increasing student achievement.

Please take a moment to review the contents on the portal at http://wentworth.mediaspace.kaltura.com
