    Lawrence Schaaf, CIO and Dean of Academic Technology Services at
     North Hennepin Community College, has been charged with trying to
     solve three major issues on campus: student satisfaction, student
     performance, and student retention and completion. His proposed
     solution had to involve easy-to-use, faculty-friendly technology,
     and be flexible enough to help students deal with balancing school,
     work and family. After a full analysis of lecture capture systems on
     the market, North Hennepin Community College selected the Mediasite
     webcasting platform. At the end of the semester, he surveyed the
     students and the results surprised him.
