When the college class of 2018, born in 1996, arrives on campus in the coming days, their world view will be quite distinct from their professors. For example:
Imagine finding yourself on an elevator with the famous founder of your company. Do you smile politely and ride it out? Or do you seize the opportunity and pitch him the big idea you’ve been working on?
If you’re Lawrence Grafton you do the latter. He pitched Michael Dell himself on an enterprise video initiative that would unify corporate messaging to more than 100,000 Dell employees and ensure that everyone, no matter where they are in the world, is speaking the same language.
Could your executive communications and training use a little more pep? Are the customers you’re trying to reach bored by your approach? Does your ho-hum corporate holiday greeting go straight into the recycling bin?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, fear not. The marketing and communications team at Alliance Benefit Group will show you how to inject some life into your corporate video strategy in a free webinar on Tuesday, September 17, from 1:00 p.m. – 1:45 p.m. (You can register here.)
Demand for academic video from the “YouTube generation” of students is growing at an astronomical rate, and universities large and small are evaluating how best to harness the power of video to meet this new level of student expectations and broaden the reach of their institutions. Video is foundational to the cutting edge trends in higher education today, including personalized education, flipped instruction and MOOCs.
Do you have an academic video strategy?

Students attending class online? That’s been going on for a while now. But I would argue that we’re still in the frontier of faculty using video to teach from wherever they are. Including live from their home offices. Check out this example:
An expert in online and distance education is putting MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) into context during a presentation at Penn State, and you’re invited to watch.
Sir John Daniel will present “Where are MOOCs Taking Higher Education” from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EDT June 13, and his presentation will be streamed live online via Mediasite by Sonic Foundry.
When we plan out the editorial calendar for our webinar series, we make a sincere effort to showcase the topics you care about. Judging by the response we’re already getting for this next one, Just Flip It: From the Front Lines of the Flipped Classroom, we’re on the right track.

It’s easy to picture a traditional classroom – a lecturing professor with rows of students watching, listening and taking notes.
But that age-old model is turning a cartwheel in some of the best classrooms in academia. And chances are someone in your department is already flipping their classroom.
