Alumni News: Videos of homes for sale are in demand

Two New England Tech Graduates, Paul Raposo and Justin Hebert, show how they are using their degree in Digital Media Production (previously named Associate degree in Video Audio Production and Bachelors degree in Digital Recording Arts) into a great career.

From Providence Journal:

Producing videos to sell homes is a practice that has moved well beyond the rarified realm of the luxury market.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Some videos are clearly amateur jobs, possibly shot with a mobile phone. Some are slickly professional. Others are almost works of art.

Producing videos to sell homes is a practice that has moved well beyond the rarified realm of the luxury market. Westcott Properties, a Providence agency that specializes in foreclosures, is even making videos for bank-owned properties and rentals.

Last week, more than 800 of the nearly 5,200 residential property listings on riliving.com, the website of Rhode Island’s State-Wide Multiple Listing Service, had some sort of video accompaniment. Some of these are video versions of photographic slide shows, many with voice-overs. But others are more lushly produced and look like short films.

Residential Properties, which has five offices in Rhode Island, has two full-time videographers on staff and has made more than 500 videos for clients. The company is planning to expand its video marketing to highlight communities, enhance agent bios, and produce a video podcast featuring CEO Sally Lapides, Readey said.

Chace and Readey said their videos usually include community footage in addition to featuring the house itself. As Readey said, “You’re not just buying the house, you’re buying the location.”

On Tuesday morning, the Residential team was shooting a video for a new listing at 215 Arlington Ave., in Providence; the house is priced at $1,375,000.

Listing Realtor Nancy Markham said it is one of a number of high-end properties coming on to the market this spring on Providence’s East Side. A video “raises the profile of the house higher in search engines,” Markham said, and “everybody is attached to their computers.”

Business Management Programs Offer Hands-on Learning

5-Business MgtNew England Tech has redesigned its Associate in Science and Bachelor of Science Degree programs in Business Management Technology (MGT) to address the management needs of the 21st century. Staying true to NEIT’s core mission and strength, the associate and bachelor degree programs emphasize hands-on lab experiences in technical, personnel, and decision making skills.  While these programs incorporate the course content and learning outcomes typically found in other collegiate business management programs, NEIT students experience a dramatically different approach to learning as all management classes have balanced lab and classroom sessions.

Utilizing unique lab learning experiences, all courses in the MGT curriculum include hands-on, applied lab experiences, in which students practice and develop skills, including technology, accounting and finance, marketing, effective communication, human resource processes, and team and project management. Students must demonstrate each skill at the end of the quarter.  While it is important for students to describe how to be an effective leader, it is more important to demonstrate that they can lead effectively.  These labs allow students world-of-work experience as they practice how they will perform in the workplace.

While emphasizing the technology used in today’s workplace such as Microsoft Office Suite and other business software, on the labs students also practice and develop skills that include effective teamwork and team leadership, decision making, values and ethical issues, negotiation, and interpersonal skills as well as decision making techniques where students develop analytical skills through a variety of lab assignments in which they analyze and respond to workplace scenarios.

In the associate degree course, “Effective Teams and Projects”, students simultaneously work on face-to-face and virtual teams, practicing team and related interpersonal skills.  In the bachelor’s level “21st Century Leadership” course, students lead a team of peers in several different scenarios that include brainstorming and conceptualizing, solving technical problems, and providing excellent service. Similarly, in the bachelor’s “Human Resource Management” course, using video cameras, students practice being interviewed and evaluate and receive feedback on their skills. They also interview others to expand their network. Students then demonstrate their effective interviewing skills at the end of the quarter.

A blend of face-to-face and online learning assignments and modules is used to mimic today’s workplace. A key learning goal of both management programs is to prepare graduates to proactively adapt to new technology. Several learning experiences require students to explore new mobile applications and software and, in some cases, teach what they’ve learned to their peers. Students also demonstrate their knowledge and skills in two capstone-like labs in both degree programs. 

Another key difference in NEIT’s business management programs is the small class size. In addition, the associate degree program is designed to be completed in as little as 18 months, and the bachelor’s degree in as little as three years. Electives are used to develop deeper expertise and skills in a specific area and/or to prepare students for chosen certifications, such as Project or Contract Management.
