Seelio Feature Updates Header

So far 2015 has been a busy one at Seelio HQ. Over the last few months we’ve been working hard on some new features that we think you’ll be pretty excited about. We’ve heard that you want more insights and analytics about your works and portfolios. You’ve also asked us for the ability to directly upload video files, not just link to ‘em on sites like YouTube and Vimeo.

And we’ve also got some exciting updates for anyone who is ready to move past their identity as a student. When you’re browsing Seelio liking, commenting on, or posting works, your identity doesn’t have to be limited to your alma mater because now you can customize your headline information.

Want more details? Read on to see the specific updates we’ve been making on Seelio, or check out our post about updates we’ve recently made for educators. As always, we love to hear from you so drop us a line anytime to ask questions or share your new feature ideas!

How A Large Lecture Course of Over 200 Students Built a Community of Collaboration and Inspiration on Seelio

Student Advice on Getting the Most Out of Your Large Lecture Course

Have you ever taken a class that was unlike any other? One that challenged you to get out of your comfort zone and make things in addition to learning about them?

Have you ever wished you could see what your classmates are up to to find inspiration or people that can work on exciting projects with you?

We encountered a group of students at Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication who are experiencing that and more in MDIA 1020: Media and the Creative Process. In this large lecture course, students complete regular project-based assignments using a variety of media platforms to put their learning into action. See more about the class philosophy and structure in our earlier post.

This is one of Scripps’ bigger courses, with around 200 students. Yet, even with such a large class size (and both online and on-campus students) we heard again and again that students found it easy to collaborate and find inspiration from their classmates.

 

How?
We want to turn things over to a few students in MDIA 1020 who shared what made this large lecture class so unique and what it was like using Seelio in the class. See who chimed in:

Textbooks, papers and… Seelio?

No matter what you’re studying or which classes you’re taking, you have a place to showcase everything you’re learning on Seelio. We released our first-ever animation video to show you how Seelio can help you stand out.

But there’s more! Get to know Seelio a little better by exploring examples from other students and resources we have to help you get started.

We have students from across the country using Seelio to tell their story. Find inspiration at any time in the Seelio Gallery. And, follow @Seelio on Twitter. On Fridays we share our #studentoftheweek. One of these days, it might just be you!

Think your work just doesn’t fit in a portfolio? Think again! While Seelio is a great place to post your best class assignments, you can add just about anything.

The best thing about Seelio is that it’s yours to keep. You can control what you add and who can see it. Take things for a spin!
