How to Use Academic Video to Create Rising-Star Students

On Demand

By the time they graduate, nearly 100% of students from The University of Toledo Edward H. Schmidt School of Professional Sales have jobs. Ready to find out how?

One of the secrets is video.

In this webinar Deirdre Jones will show you how to use academic video to maximize student engagement in the classroom, and how it can also give students a leg up as they enter the professional world. You’ll learn what she’s discovered after a decade of lecture capture, engaging homework assignments, hosting a national sales competition and strategically connecting students and recruiters with video.

See video-engagement examples that you can immediately put into practice for your students, including:

  • Improving student engagement with interactive homework assignments, mock interviews, roll plays and elevator pitches
  • Strategies for improving individual and team performance
  • Showcasing educational content and event sponsors
  • Setting a new tempo for the recruiting process by connecting students with hiring companies
