Columbia University Taps into BlogTalkRadio with Virtual Open Houses

At BlogTalkRadio, we have long since believed that uses of our technology would benefit the university crowd. And today we can see this in action as Columbia University’s School of Journalism hosts virtual open houses for prospective and current students.

ColumbiaModerated by BlogTalkRadio host and dean of students, Sree Sreenivasan, the open houses provide a platform where current and prospective Columbia journalism students can learn about the NYC “J School” and ask questions about the program. From orientation to deadlines, students worldwide can jump geography and get answers they need in real time.

Today’s 10am ET episode features two back-to-back 30-minute chats with Dean Nicholas Lemann and Dean Evan Cornog, director of the Columbia Journalism School M.A. Program, who will answer questions and talk about the program.

Sree Sreenivasan is Dean of Students and runs the school’s new media department. He specializes in helping journalists use technology better and faster. His technology reports appear once a week on WNBC-TV (he was WABC-TV’s Tech Guru for six years) and he writes a weekly Web Tips column for Poynter.org.
