The goal is to get the word out about BCIT, raise some buzz through social media, share video interviews and do
an ultimate giveaway two ultimate giveaways of $1,000 worth of tuition credits. The event began yesterday at the main Burnaby campus and will be going until Wednesday. They have an entire crew working 8-hour shifts each to keep the educational information flowing.
Tomorrow (Tuesday, October 27th) they will also be hosting a tweetup at Malone’s downtown, near their Vancouver campus. It will run from 5:30pm onwards and is listed on the official Vancouver Tweetup directory.
The crew at BCIT (Kemp, Dave, Randy et al) have been doing a tremendous job in using social media — from individual Twitter accounts to YouTube videos that profile programs and life on the BCIT campus. If you have the chance, stop by the 3 Blog Nights booth at the Burnaby campus (inside SE2) or check them out online. I know what it’s like to do a Blogathon so kudos to them for making this campaign an annual event.
Update: My interview video is now online.
