Abstractaimed at developing professionals in the digital media field. A core tenet of the program is cultivating student proficiency in the design and development of digital media programs and systems. The department prepares its graduates for roles as multimedia and e-learning developers in academic, healthcare, and corporate settings. Preparing students for work in these fields requires that the department and its faculty keep up with current technology and seek new approaches to support student learning. One innovation JMA recently implemented features Sonic Foundry&apos;s Mediasite video conferencing system, which can record, archive, and distribute class lectures online. The system makes recorded lectures available to students for review on an as-needed basis and enables geographically distant students to participate in on-campus classes. In this article, we introduce Mediasite and document how two graduate courses enhanced the delivery of course content using the system. More specifically, we provide an overview of the system, describe how JMA faculty implemented it, note the ways students responded to it, and discuss its capability to support teaching and learning.
