Video Spotlight: Sam Houston State's Bearkat OneCard

Andrew Hudson   ||   Mar 16, 2017  ||   

The average campus card informational video tends to be brief, packing as much information as possible into a short, tight production. And most of the time this formula gets the job done.

Sometimes, though, it's worth the time and effort to produce a full, comprehensive campus card video. That's what Sam Houston State has done with it's "Bearkat OneCard Services Orientation Video." The team at SHSU left no stone unturned with its informational video, covering the full range of functions that the card supports along with all the card FAQs, off-campus capabilities, financial aid disbursements and refunds, as well as card issuance, activation and replacement processes.

In addition to covering all the card basics, the longer video format opens the opportunity to show key areas around campus where the card is frequently used. Encompassing all the need-to-know information for your campus card in a single video may require a longer format and some additional effort, but the result is a single source for nearly every card related enquiry that your campus community may have.
