University of Toronto Math Department Colloquium Videos Winter 2013

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto has recently deployed a new granular content management system called KBasix for sharing files and web content. We’ve deployed and enriched a KBasix system to create a video upload-transcode-stream service for the videos of seminars and colloquia that take place in our department. I am grateful to Pamela Brittain, Marco de la Cruz-Heredia, Emile LeBlanc and Habiba Mohtadi for their efforts at making it possible for the world to tune into our colloquium stream!
