Looking for the 2018 selection? Check it out!
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.
West Virginia University’s card
Columbia College Chicago’s card
Butler University Division of Student Affairs’ card
Carlson School of Management’s card (a YouTube hit with more than 800K views in 2 weeks)
University of North Texas’ card
Washington State University’s card
University of Central Missouri President’s card (you can’t go wrong with chocolate cake :0)
