Te Puna Wānanga Named a Finalist in the 2015 Enterprise Video Awards
The University of Auckland singled out for revolutionizing video

Auckland April 16th, 2015 – Te Puna Wānanga of the Faculty of Education, the University of Auckland has been named a finalist in the 11th annual Enterprise Video Awards in the Outcomes Award. This award recognizes an organization that uses video to achieve a measurable outcome in training, communications or outreach initiatives by Sonic Foundry, Inc. (NASDAQ: SOFO) the trusted global leader for video creation and management solutions.

The awards honour excellence in Mediasite integration into business, education, health and government. This year’s finalists achieved measurable improvements in information accessibility, cost-savings, efficiency and productivity through Mediasite.

One of the recipients, Piata Allen (PLD Practitioner at Te Puna Wānanga) says that “one of the biggest challenges we face is with the revitalization of our indigenous Maori language, and we are using Mediasite webcasting to assist with this. We’re helping Maori children to access webcasting technology and to develop their own user generated content. These K-12 students are second language learners of Te Reo Māori . So our learners of Māori language are creating Mediasite resources, that they can use to advance understanding of their own language, the knowledge of their peers, the knowledge of their families, and the wider online community. “

Piata and colleague Mark Dashper (e-Learning PLD Practitioner at Te Puna Wānanga) will be travelling to Madison Wisconsin to accept the award. Mark says “this award reflects the effort and recognition our team places on the value of webcasting for our organization, to better meet students’ needs, and continue to push boundaries to allow Māori to achieve educational success as Māori. The positive outcomes are reflected in the faces of ākonga in kura we work with.”

“We continue to be amazed with the outstanding ways our customers are using Mediasite to save money, create efficiencies, drive communications and improve learning outcomes,” said Rob Lipps, executive vice president, Sonic Foundry. “Te Puna Wānanga leads by example through its innovative use of Mediasite.”

Winners will be announced at Unleash 2015, the Mediasite User Conference April 27-29 in Madison, Wisconsin, USA.
