Education in the 21st century is diverse not only in content and discipline but also in format and delivery. Today's students have access to a broad range of information, knowledge, ideas, and opinions well beyond their classroom. Never before have learners been able to interact so closely with instructors, mentors, subject-matter experts, and peers, and yet be so dispersed. As the possibilities for educational institutions have increased, so have the challenges. Institutions are challenged to keep up with rapidly evolving technology and to cover costs for outfitting classrooms with high-cost hardware, proprietary software, long-term media and data management. Open-source, rich-media platforms such as Opencast Matterhorn 1.0 and Kaltura promise to make the capture, delivery, and access of video and audio content easier and less expensive. In this article, the author presents her experiences at Berkeley with the Sakai and Opencast projects as evidence that partnerships and associated communities within higher education can enhance both teaching and learning.
