The EDUniverse just got smaller — and bigger

Today, two of important online resources for the higher ed marketing world merged. Set Odell’s HigherEdLive and mStoner‘s EDUniverse will become one unstoppable force for good.

“The merger brings together our industry’s best in rich media with the best of crowdsourced collaboration and content, all with the goal of building Higher Ed Live/EDUniverse into an even more useful platform for the higher education industry,” writes Odell in his announcement of the merger. Michael Stoner also wrote about this merger, promising that he and the mStoner group are “going to work very closely with them to ensure that Higher Ed Live becomes even more dynamic and inspiring — and that it becomes more relevant than ever.”

For now, the sites will continue to operate independently as the mStoner team and the Higher Ed Live team determine how to best bring these two sites together. But I’m sure we can expect some big things to happen — and soon — as a result of this new venture.

Congratulations to Seth, Michael and everyone else who was involved in making this happen.

  1. Thanks, Andy: we really appreciate your announcement and support! And just in case people miss it on my post, we’re really looking for ways that the network can better serve the needs of our friends and colleagues in higher ed. I hope you — and everyone who reads this — will share their thoughts and ideas with us: please send me an email if you have an inspiration (or a complaint!).

  2. I’m not sure always get the big picture from a lot of your posts. You are concerned primarily marketing/selling and making available resources and classes from major colleges and education institutes, correct?
    I am always interested in pertinent classes I can take that will not interfere with my work schedule. I like online self-paced classes.

    • Mark – I originally started this blog to talk about marketing, PR and branding issues facing folks in the higher ed business (like me). The main audience is people who work in the higher ed marketing/PR/branding field. I’m glad you visit and comment on these posts, though, and hope you find some of them occasionally relevant. It’s great that you take pertinent classes. I’d be interested in knowing what kinds you take and from where (as online coursework will continue to grow as a major force in higher education).
