In recent years, the Office of Communications & Marketing at IUPUI has won numerous awards for its electronic media, especially related to podcasting. Why? IUPUI's approach is different. With just one full-time staffer, the department produces over 100 videos each year, distributed via the Web, podcasts, sites such as Youtube and Facebook, digital signage, campus cable, and traditional broadcast. This high-volume approach keeps audiences engaged with fresh content and allows the department to simply tell more stories. Discover IUPUI's model for video communication, including workflow, staffing, and funding, and how it all fits with other communications.
