Students Work to Design Teaching Video Series
September 10, 2012
Our client has provided us with a stock of videos that we will attempt to find a consumer market for. The videos have potential educational and job training attributes. We have the ability to manipulate the videos to make them more accessible to markets other than business related markets. Our main objective is to produce a few short prototypes that will be used to do market research and to determine if there even is a market for these educational videos.
