Students Gain Real-World Experience Through London Business Site Visit

Screen-Shot-2015-01-19-at-11.35.59-300x225One of the highlights from the fall 2014 semester’s London program was the opportunity for students enrolled in the “Digital Britain: Engaging the User” course to work directly with a local London digital business, Historypin.

During their site visit in November, students were able to openly dialogue with executives at Historypin to enhance the user experience on the history blogging community website. Students were able to give feedback to Historypin and suggest ways to improve the website. In addition, students got a feel for how a real London office works and were able to experience first-hand the challenges that a digital company faces.

The two-way conversation between Historypin and the digital communications students was beneficial to both parties and facilitated insightful observations. The students were very excited about the collaboration and professor Carol Nahra hopes to continue this visit with future classes.
