(New York, NY – September 22, 2008) – This back-to-school season, guidance counselors can steer students who want direct insight into life at hundreds of colleges and universities to CollegeClickTV.com. With the largest video library of online video reviews professionally produced and exclusively available at CollegeClickTV.com, the site showcases more than 30,000 video reviews from 200+ colleges and universities from across the country.
No other source provides the wealth of originally produced college video reviews – from current college students – all available for free easy access to enhance the college search experience. CollegeClickTV.com provides highlights of dorms, academic life, campus activities, nightlife, Greek life and much more. While the site was originally developed for students and parents, it can be a useful tool for high school guidance counselors as they direct students through the college search process.
Glenn Pere, Managing Partner of parent company Videople LLC, conceived the web site and began a mission to fill an online void.
"It was simple: we wanted to provide college-bound high school juniors and seniors, along with their parents, visual interactive content to make a more informed college decision," Pere said. "Guidance counselors also want to feel comfortable about the choices they are helping students make, and we provide another valuable layer of insight."
For and by students, CollegeClickTV.com allows students to visit the college of their choice and see and hear from enrolled students from the comfort of their own home. Students relate to the content of peer-to-peer video reviews as it comes from a trusted source: current students.
Education marketing leader PlattForm Advertising has partnered with CollegeClickTV.com to further enhance the user experience. Acknowledging that online video is the must-have tool for the college search process, PlattForm will utilize its vast expertise to extend reach and usability of CollegeClickTV.com. PlattForm joins a partner list of top educational companies that have validated CollegeClickTV.com’s concept of online video reviews, including U.S. News & World Report, Google/YouTube, The Princeton Review and Wiley’s CliffsNotes.com.
"We are thrilled to have the top educational portals as our partners as we move to the next phase," Pere said.
CollegeClickTV.com is the only web site of this magnitude and scope to offer authentic, unscripted peer-to-peer review video content on the college experience. In the coming months, its video library will grow continuously, with the goal to film at more than 500 schools.
