Sac State's Mediasite system is an all-in-one video platform. Mediasite can be used to capture lectures and presentations for both hybrid or blended online learning and training. In addition to room-based recordings, the system supports desktop recording of audio, video, and computer slides which can also be uploaded into a sharable collection of content. The system offers assistive technology to enhance learning for viewers of all abilities including screen readers and keyboard shortcuts, automated and searchable closed captioning.
