Removing Related ads from YouTube video

Since I was asked once again on a Listserv, I thought I'd re-post this.

 

To keep ads from popping up after your video you can add a parameter to your embed code.

Here's a link to give you a clue:  http://illuminea.com/remove-related-videos-from-end-of-embedded-you...

*Basically, you add the parameter: 

?rel=0  

... which means no related…

Job well done Terry!

Sad to hear that the University of Michigan list is closing today. 

Terry Calhoun has done a wonderful job over the many years I've been on the list and it has been an excellent resource for my team.

Thank you Terry and University of Michigan!

Mailto rage

So, I hate mailto. I can't tell you how much, because the English vocabulary is inadequate to describe how much hate I hate mailto links.

So, I had a form made. I hate the form. It works just fine, but there's no way to add an attachment.

Have y'all explored any other approaches? Perhaps found a form that does the job well?

Show off what's happening on your site

Last fall Google Analytics added a new feature called Real-Time. These new reports let you see what’s happening on your site, as it happens.

In my department there are several people who tweet, post on Facebook and send out e-newsletters and other marketing materials. The Real-Time reports give them immediate feedback on the effectiveness of their efforts.

It also shows us what’s trending. One morning, referrals and active pages focused on the nursing program. An hour later, as…

Minor changes to your portal page will benefit everyone

My previous post was about how students were confused regarding what information was on portal vs. what was on the external web site, and changes we had made to help them figure it out.

Today I came across a great example. Santa Barbara City College,identifies pathways with START HERE! and emphasizes content that is unique to their student portal, under the heading "What's Inside."

And, notice the way they present…

User testing brings good results

Students at Harper College must use the student portal for all business-related transactions, such as registering, paying tuition and accepting financial aid awards. But most other information—academic programs, college catalog, calendar of events, advising—is on the external site.

Through user testing, we saw that students were confused about which site to go to, to accomplish particular tasks. They would search the external site for information that was only available on…

Photos I took on campus: Tibetan Lamas of the Drepung Loseling Monastery

In October we had a visit from the Tibetan Lamas of the Drepung Loseling Monastery. While they were here, they created a sand mandala and then dispersed the sand in a local stream. It was an amazing experience for our students, staff and faculty. I love working on a…

Tools to calculate the real cost of college

What does it really cost to attend college? To get the answer, subtract aid that doesn't have to be repaid, such as merit and need-based grants, and any tuition discount the school is giving you. Or, use a net price calculator.

The federal government is requiring all colleges (post-secondary institutions which receive federal funding and have first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students including public, private nonprofit and for-profit schools) to have a calculator on their web…

Marketing your organization on Linkedin

With 100 millions users on Linkedin, it's time to start paying attention to your Linkedin "Company Profile Page."

Linked is awesome because it’s network aware.When a Linkedin member views a company page they'll see if someone in their network works at that company. And, bonus, they’ll know if someone in their network recommends that company's products or services. That’s the most credible and authentic word-of-mouth advertising available.
