In The Moment: Creating an Interactive Commencement

Each year, thousands of families sit passively awaiting the moment that their one graduate finally crosses the stage. But until that fleeting minute, they sit, hot, hungry, tired and anxious. Why not give them something to do?

Graduates too, wait, anxious, excited, taking pictures, texting, sharing video. Why not provide a place for them to share this experience together, online, collectively and archived for them to view and share later?

What about those who cannot make it to the ceremony? How do they share in the day?

Last May, Suffolk University found a way to capture all of the activity that commencement brings. Find out how we used our institutional website, livestream, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, FourSquare, Flickr, text to screen and pre-shot video to make commencement a living, breathing event for all to experience.
