UPDATE: Looking for the 2014 Selection?
It was published on December 17, 2014 on this blog.

I love holidays cards – and by looking at the recent web traffic on my Holidays Cards post from last year, I’m probably not the only one in the higher ed community.

Earlier this week, I asked the readers of my weekly newsletter (not a subscriber yet?) if they could send my way links to their 2011 holidays video cards (video is a great medium for this genre as it can convey emotions so well). I also got some suggestions via Twitter.

After reviewing all of them (while eating some well-deserved chocolate), here’s the selection of my favorites 2011 holidays videos (in no specific order) along with all the links I received so you can check out every single one.

If you have a holiday card or have seen a cool one that isn’t listed here, post a comment so we can all watch it.

Happy Holidays!
