Increasing Faculty Usage of Streaming Video: A Webcast

Just finished moderating the webcast, Increasing Faculty Usage of Streaming Video, sponsored by Alexander Street Press and Library Journal, and it was a doozy. Had more “on-air” questions than in any other webcast I’ve moderated, learned A LOT, and now have a much better understanding of the issues that come into play in using streaming video for courses. Presenters were Stephen Rhind-Tutt (President and founder, Alexander Street Press), Kim Stanton (Head of the media library, University of North Texas), and Pete Ciuffetti (Vice president of product development, Alexander Street Press), all knowledgeable folks on the ins and outs of streaming video.

The webcast is being archived, and will be available for free, online, within about a week. If you’d like to get word when the cast is available online, just register here:

Several virtual participants noted that next, a webcast on copyright and streaming video would be useful. I hope to see one coming soon!

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
