Here is a video created by my students who practice what I preach (almost) every day. They created this video and Facebook page to answer a real-life recruitment & retainment challenge.
My students at Hannam University's Linton Global College use media and video to improve their writing skills, teamwork skills, critical thinking skills, international advertising skills, and project management skills. They also have fun learning while working hard.
Communication is much more than just language skills. It is about designing a message for a target audience and 'call to action' in mind.

"With the popularity of flipped classrooms showing no sign of waning, a new crop of web tools for teachers are emerging to help support instruction.

The eduCanon platform is a tool for teachers to build lessons with interactive timed questions and engaging video content. Already, we've been amazed by the creative and inspirational uses of eduCanon by teachers--for flipped and blended learning environments.
In the three decades since the Internet evolved from an experimental band of academic and government computer systems into a globe-spanning network of interconnected systems, the amount of time spent online has grown to rival (or even exceed) the time spent living offline. Personal computers, tablets and smartphones have made the connected life a reality, and the number of folks pursuing it has exploded.
Implementing some kind of self-assessment is a very good thing, as it enables learners to judge the quality of their work. I’ve done this on an ad-hoc basis at times in the past, but using a formal instrument or procedure can work wonders, even if it has no official bearing on the final outcome.
