Explosive growth of social video opens new channel for student recruiters | International Education Infographics | Scoop.it

Have you begun to explore social video yet?

 

The production and use of social video – very short clips of video or stop-motion graphics distributed via major social networks – took off quickly during 2013 and is now beginning to factor more prominently in social marketing strategies for student recruitment.

 

There are two major social video platforms in the market today, Vine and Instagram, each of which is owned by a social media giant. The impressive growth trajectory of both services combined with the fact that younger users – high school and college age in particular – are among the heaviest producers and consumers of social video will put it more on the radar of international recruiters in 2014 and beyond.

Facebook is changing: Are you changing with it?

Facebook is changing: Are you changing with it? | International Education Infographics | Scoop.it

Facebook has made some substantial changes over the last year, and many of these should affect the way student recruiters are using the platform to reach out to and engage with students.

If you haven't been keeping up-to-date, then this is your chance to get back on track. The changes can be roughly divided into two categories: those that affect what users see and can do in their newsfeed, and those that affect brands’ ability to reach out to target audiences.

In the first half of this article, ICEF Monitor takes a close look at each of the latest changes. Read Part 1: http://monitor.icef.com/2013/03/part-1-facebook-is-changing-are-you-changing-with-it/

The second instalment offers our recommended list of good Facebook practices for recruiters - oriented toward complementary goals of engaging current fans, extending reach to new fans and prospective students, and providing content that enhances the institutional brand. We also include an infographic, which offers insight into how liking a brand on Facebook influences the consumer experience.

US moves to double its number of outbound students by 2018 | International Education Infographics | Scoop.it


The number of US postsecondary students studying abroad has roughly doubled in each of the past two decades.

And as of 2012/13, only about 9% of all American undergraduate students study abroad today.

(Note: This article also contains an infographic on US students studying abroad.)

We explore these questions in the knowledge that in some countries, parents are considering foreign schools at earlier and earlier ages for their children, and will be asking schools and agents the very same questions. We also present an infographic comparing educational technologies of the past to the classroom resources of today.
