MEDIASHAREiQ Helps Healthcare Educators Adapt to Changing Learning Environments
Didactic learning has been the framework for healthcare educators to provide learners with the academic foundation to support successful real-world clinical practice. Yet today, both environmental factors and technological advancements have transformed how didactic learning is delivered and consumed, where administrators are leveraging more flexible, digital delivery models to traverse the evolving healthcare education landscape. As learners become increasingly familiar with hybrid-flexible environments that promote a more inclusive, experiential-based learning approach, there is a greater demand for adaptive video education software that supports the flipped, hybrid, and virtual classrooms — such as EMS’s MEDIASHAREiQ video platform.
MEDIASHAREiQ is a video content management and recording system designed for higher education institutions and healthcare training organizations that provides more immersive, engaging learning and communications experiences for students and staff. The MEDIASHAREiQ platform addresses changing tech and environmental trends through enhanced accessibility and extensibility of didactic teaching models.
Institutions that are not equipped or under-equipped to support the technology needs of their students can turn to MEDIASHAREiQ to help extend video-based training, streamline online assessment, increase learning engagement, and centralize access to synchronous and asynchronous content. Specifically, the MEDIASHAREiQ enterprise video platform puts learners in the driver’s seat – allowing them to flow through course content at their own pace, facilitating both in-class and remote education.
Other MEDIASHAREiQ features include the ability for educators to manage their didactic lecture and live exercise curriculum, organize course-specific media with a smart user interface, and record HD-quality video sessions on-demand. These sessions can be quickly and easily edited and annotated with any internet-connected computer or mobile device. Once saved, cloud-based media is available for contextual search based on keywords generated by any spoken word in the content.
Further, educators can engage remote learners beyond the classroom with fully-integrated live streaming, and track and measure learner performance with interactive real-time quizzes and surveys. Another benefit of this software is its robust reporting module, which enables educators to generate comprehensive data on learner engagement and viewing habits, usage, and trends. In terms of security, administrators can maintain student privacy, data compliance, and integrity with secure cloud computing, and single sign-on.
Connecting MEDIASHAREiQ to an existing learning management system (LMS) is easy. Leveraging LTI standards, it integrates with virtually any LMS software on the market, including Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, Brightspace, Sakai, etc. MEDIASHAREiQ also has a Hyflex option providing all hardware needed for live, in-classroom lecture broadcast and recording. This includes an advanced Ultra HD PTZ camera, two front-of-room speakers, two mic pods, a table hub, display hub, and remote control. Additional options include mounting kits, cameras, microphones, classroom PCs, and display monitors.
“With MEDIASHAREiQ our workflows are better and more consistent. We love that it meets our core needs while allowing faculty to interface directly from Canvas. Seamless integration between systems was crucially important,” said Matthew Kile, MS, a senior instructional designer at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Overall, the MEDIASHAREiQ solution offers a way to implement video-based learning technology that fully integrates didactic education across the program. It provides the added flexibility needed to face changing environments, learning styles, and technical requirements to promote a digitally mature program that is adaptive to any in-person, hybrid, or virtual classroom construct. MEDIASHAREiQ is designed to suit all these needs and provide a cohesive, enterprise video learning solution. It bridges the existing gap institutions face and creates the learning environment needed to move forward confidently and seamlessly into the future of hybrid-flexible healthcare education.
Important to note, EMS, the developers of MEDIASHAREiQ, are uniquely positioned to serve the virtual healthcare training and simulation market, with over 25 years of working in the healthcare education industry. For three decades, EMS has helped institutions navigate the healthcare education technology space while constantly innovating to develop the most efficient and effective products spanning clinical simulation management, virtual and hybrid training, flipped classroom learning, and competency-based performance analytics.
