We’re excited to announce that the Higher Ed Live network is once again expanding. After an exciting and action-packed first full year, today we announce the official launch of Admissions Live.
A new live weekly web show exclusively covering the world of higher education admissions, Admissions Live will be hosted by none other than Rochester Institute of Technology’s Ashley Hennigan and will broadcast each Tuesday night at 7pm ET. Audiences will have the chance to not only watch feature interviews with industry leading experts, but also contribute to the show by asking questions, in real-time, via the show’s hashtag #admissionslive.
Many of you tuned in back in November when Ashley guest hosted a special Higher Ed Live episode, A Social Media Toolkit for Admissions. After the great job she did, Ashley and I spoke about the need for more comprehensive content specifically targeting the admissions space. It’s our hope this program will provide admissions professionals – and the broader higher education industry as a whole – a platform for continued dialogue around innovation, as well as best practices, tips and tricks.
Bringing the first ever admissions-focused live weekly web show to market comes with its challenges, and that’s why I’m happy to announce that Admissions Live is being sponsored by Inigral, SCVNGR, Welcome to College and Zinch. The generous sponsorship and support from these organizations will help us bring you the highest quality programming each and every week, and will allow us to remove the ads from Ustream to enhance your viewer experience.
The support from these organizations is evidence that they are not only committed to bettering our industry through delivery of their products, but that they are also committed to supporting dialogue and professional development opportunities for the talented folks who make our industry what it is today. Whether through a tweet, comment on this post or an email, please join me in thanking Inigral, SCVNGR, Welcome to College and Zinch, for their support.
And now, without further ado, please check out the below video from Ashley herself to get more information on the show, and make sure to mark your calendars for the inaugural episode of Admissions Live, bringing you the State of College Admissions with guest Don Fraser, NACAC’s Director of Education and Training, which will broadcast on Tuesday, January 10 at 7pm ET.
