AIC Virtual Message Tutorial

Faculty and Staff,

We are requesting your assistance in engaging with our students via the recording of a personalized video.

These videos will allow for motivational and inspirational messaging to our students during this difficult time.

Marketing and Communications and Athletics have partnered to create a step-by-step video tutorial hosted by AIC’s Director of Athletic Communications Tom Pool.

If you elect to record a video, we suggest they range in length between 20 to 90 seconds.

Your videos will be shared on AIC’s social media sites as well as on the College’s COVID-19 web page.

Videos can also be directly emailed to students.

Should videos require editing, we will contact you directly and provide suggestions and assistance.

Your support of our students is greatly appreciated.
