Kwantlen sets its sights on YouTube

October 30, 2010 by  

Kwantlen’s YouTube channel is growing daily.

KwantlenUTV, found in the Digital CafĂ© section of Kwantlen’s website, is a collection of Kwantlen-related YouTube videos shot by Kwantlen students.

It was created in 2008 and is managed by Kwantlen’s marketing and communication department.

A total of 256 videos have been uploaded so far.

According to Joanne Saunders, the director of the marketing and communications department, Kwantlen plans to expand the service.

“We hope to increase usage of Kwantlen UTV in future and are working on a marketing plan to move forward,” Saunders wrote in an e-mail.

The YouTube channel offers anyone interested a chance to learn about what different departments have to offer and get to know students and alumni through one-on-one interviews.

Videos about fashion, horticulture, humanities, social sciences and other departments can all be found on the website.

“The fashion show, convocation and the Olympic torch bearer have been the most popular videos this year,” Saunders wrote.

The video Kwantlen Fashion has 1,833 views and is the most-watched video.

Several recent videos feature profiles of Kwantlen graduates who have gone on to have successful careers in their fields.
