Higher Ed TV: Holiday Card YouTube-style by the University of Maryland

December 5th, 2007 Karine Joly 3 Comments

‘Tis the season to be jolly and… to send/email Holidays cards.

This year, the University of Maryland has put a refreshing spin on the tradition with a 2-minute video featuring many students, staff and faculty members – and even Alum Connie Chung – gathering for a group holiday photo.

Available on YouTube, the video can also be watched from a dedicated website: www.holidaygreeting.umd.edu with some bonus features including the resulting holiday group photo, a photo gallery and a time lapse video of the photo shoot.

The video card can be emailed from YouTube (using their new Holiday Card feature) or from the dedicated website.

And, since we’re talking about holiday cards, why don’t you share a link to yours by posting a comment?
