Consortium for Ocean Leadership Selects Velocity7 for new educational website


WASHINGTON DC Nov. 24, 2008 - The Consortium for Ocean Leadership has selected Velocity7, a Nevada City marketing communications firm, to develop its new educational website for the Deep Earth Academy. The website will function as a multi-media educational portal for the JOIDES Resolution (The JR), a deep-sea scientific drilling vessel.

We had many proposals, but found that Velocity7 offered the most complete package of educational content and exciting social media. said Sharon Katz-Cooper, Assistant Director, Deep Earth Academy.

By treating the website as a classroom, were inviting students aboard The JR to interact and blog with the crew. We re also combining social networking tools, like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, with customized games and educational resources to make a hub for scientific learning, observes Robert Trent, Velocity7 CEO.
