Is Your Attention Under Attack?

Even as I type this first sentence of my […]

December 16th, 2013 Karine Joly No Comments

While prospective students have always seen the college experience as much more than the degree they get when they graduate, majors and academic areas of interest are an important part of the decision process for students — and their parents.

October 1st, 2013 Karine Joly No Comments

Ah, contests on social media platforms… Nothing like a contest to generate some tweets, right?

Since the beginning of times (well, almost), contests, sweepstakes […]

In July 2008 I spent a long holiday weekend setting up a free job board for the higher ed web community. There was a real need for a job board reserved to digital jobs in higher education. It has always been free to post higher ed jobs – the only kind of jobs that made […]

Hashtags FTW Ah, the power of hashtags… They made Twitter by allowing total strangers with common interests to connect on the 140-character social media platform.

Ward mentioned an Australian institution that used AR in its application… about 3 years ago. Augmented reality is not new, but I bet it’s going to go mainstream pretty […]
