Yesterday we passed 1000 active staff, students and faculty using Camtasia Relay to record and publish lectures, classwork and tutorials. This should be a proud moment for our group and a celebrated milestone. I want to personally thank Tim Anderson for all his help in supporting this very important service. The level of customer support and professionalism Tim has provided our end-users is hard to match and I feel he is an invaluable asset to our group.
Looking forward to this summer, we plan on working with OCM to upgrade rooms around campus to our new Camtasia Relay 4.x system. This upgrade will provide many enhancements our users have been asking for. Two very important service enhancements will be the connectivity to our IDM service and our new media management platform, Kaltura.
More information about CamRelay and Kaltura can be found on our project blog (updated weekly): http://umnmmsupdate.blogspot.
Thank you again Tim for all you do for this group and the Camtasia Relay service!
