The 2013 OUF (in Video)

For the 8th consecutive year, Ken Steele spent the weekend at the Ontario Universities Fair in Toronto, checking out exhibits, taking in presentations, collecting print materials and impressions to share with you. (You can check out his blogs about previous OUFs here.)

But this year, for the first time ever, Ken and his eldest daughter took a video camera to the OUF, and have assembled a 23-minute video podcast, which we hope will be more engaging and interesting than a written blog with dozens of photos. Think of it as 16 hours of footage condensed into 23 minutes — and we’re also saving you some terrible traffic jams in downtown Toronto, as the Jays lost another ball game on the Sunday.

Ken captured the university exhibits, some unusual presentation rooms, and even interviewed a couple of university presidents and others on the trade show floor.  (Sincere apologies to the many others he would have liked to interview, but timing did not allow it.)

When you’ve had a look, please comment below.  Did we miss something important at the 2013 OUF that we should have mentioned?  Do you think we should try video blogging again next year, or should we go back to the old approach?
