Zoom, Echo Frames, Spatial, Magic Leap, Web Meetings, and Synchronous Online Learning

Why face-to-face meetings are still sometimes what is needed, and what this may tell us about the future of online education.

September 30, 2019

This week, I had one of those uncomfortable realizations that cause me to question my ability to make sense of the world. My latest revelation that everybody else already knows – and which I seem to be the last to grasp – is that sometimes face-to-face discussions are better than online meetings.

That’s right. I had an experience this week where an in-person meeting was superior to a discussion on Zoom.

It turns out that some discussions are better held in a shared physical location. Zoom is still not able to capture the subtleties of body language or substitute for the interpersonal bonding that comes with meeting face-to-face.

High fidelity collaboration, particularly among humans who don’t yet know each other, seems to require more bandwidth than even the most crystal clear of video and audio feeds.

Does this mean that we will be consigned to a lifetime of travel by airplane, train, bus, or car to attend face-to-face meetings?

As an online learning evangelist, how worried should I be about the seemingly insurmountable advantage that geographic co-existence seems to enjoy over collaboration at a distance?

In this same week that I was having my uncomfortable realization that some collaborations are poorly optimized for distance, Amazon decided to release the Echo Frames.

Great Big Story’s mission statement reads as follows: “We believe there is magic in the world and it’s our mission in life to help you discover it. We search for stories showing a sense of optimism for the world…because goodness can grow through the smallest cracks in the sidewalk.”

How they help us discover the world’s magic is through video: short, professionally produced videos about people and phenomena all over the world, stories that will pique your curiosity and give you the sense of wonder about the world. Videos can be browsed by themes like Human Condition, Planet Earth, and Flavors (yep, all about food), or in curated playlists. There’s one on being a travel writer, one about a people in the great outdoors, and one on the accidental invention of the best snack food ever.

Video is becoming a well-respected form of “text” that can be consumed and analyzed as deeply as any print text, so collections like these should become a part of your school’s library of options for classroom materials. One word of warning: Although the content on the site has been rated safe for all audiences on YouTube and Facebook, the videos on Great Big Story were not made specifically for a student audience, and some material will not be appropriate for younger viewers. Teachers should preview videos before sharing them with students.

Extron and Panopto Streamline Video Capture

David Brodosi Extron and PanoptoPRNewswire/ — Extron, the leader in integrated AV solutions, and Panopto, the leading enterprise video platform provider, today announced a strategic partnership to seamlessly integrate Extron’s configurable AV control systems with Panopto’s media capture software and video content management system.

For businesses and universities, the partnership will dramatically simplify the recording and management of presentations, lectures, and events. Starting today, Extron is making available certified drivers for its in-room control systems, which now integrate with Panopto’s video capture software, enabling presenters to start and stop Panopto-compatible remote recorders with a single click. Second, in the coming months, Extron’s SMP (Streaming Media Processors) will also be directly integrated with Panopto, enabling ad hoc and scheduled video streaming from SMP products through the Panopto video content management system. The integration will support live, scheduled and on-demand publishing workflows.

“This is a very exciting time as Extron integrates solutions from our uniquely broad AV product portfolio with Panopto’s powerful enterprise video streaming platform to provide robust turn-key video solutions for the modern classroom and meeting space,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “Whether it be simple push-button control to hands-off, fully-automated streaming and recording for any environment, we are jointly taking media capture and management to a new level of simplicity for the industry.”
