San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
The TED conference has shown that millions of people love watching online videos from its exclusive conferences for free. But TED isn't the only event organizer with videos online. Tens of thousands of conference videos on par with TED's quality are scattered all across the web. Finding these videos has been difficult, time consuming, and sometimes impossible. Now there's 48 Sessions - a new beta website launching today that makes it easy for people to discover and watch conference videos online for free.
48 Sessions pulls from thousands of websites to provide a single, comprehensive, and categorized platform for conference videos, speaker bios, event details, and organizer profiles. All content is categorized, tagged, and sorted in a meaningful way.
"I started 48 Sessions after going to so many websites all across the web looking for conference videos, searching for topics I was interested in, then researching the speakers, then doing more searches for other videos from speakers I liked - I just thought there has to be a better way," said Duane Nason, founder of 48 Sessions. "With 48 Sessions, everything is all in one place, making it easy to watch and learn from industry experts, world leaders, and interesting people speaking at fascinating events from around the world - all for free."
Over 3,000 conference videos, from over 300 events, and full profile listings of over 1,200 speakers are available at launch, and more are added every day. Video categories include Technology, Business, Design, Education, Health Care, Entertainment, Government, Society, Science, and Global Issues.
48 Sessions helps users learn from conferences they couldn't attend because of scheduling conflicts, high travel costs, or didn't know about. Event organizers can benefit by opening up their lectures to a wider, global audience, and spark demand and awareness for upcoming events.
"We're doing for thousands of events, what TED has done for their event - expanding their brand and their speakers' ideas and inspirations to a global audience for free," explained Nason.
