Better, faster, more: Strategies for the next generation of broadband
Federation University Australia through the Centre for eCommerce and Communications (CeCC) is delivering a dynamic awareness and skills development program. The Centre assists businesses and not-for-profit entities to leverage opportunities from broadband technologies and deliver learning programs to internal university stakeholders. One of the trends predicted by international experts in digital communication is the transition from text based information to content that is viewed spatially, in 3D and other visual formats. Helen will discuss:
• How next generation broadband creates new opportunities
• Strategies: Using visual storytelling to deliver the message
• Tools to create increased audience engagement
