Level 7, created in 2010 by Careersbox (UK - http://www.careersbox.co.uk), is a modular job application and interview techniques film programme. Aimed at students who are preparing for the world of work, who are often confronted with a disconnect in what is expected by the commercial world and what resources are available to the education world, this project is meant to better prepare and inform young people around the expectations of an employer whilst supporting teachers with an engaging technology based platform to help them do their job more effectively.
This program is designed to offer real employer feedback to help guide young people (aged 14-17) into the world of work. They, as well as information, advice and guidance professionals across all UK schools can use the resources. Due to its delivery method (online, as well as embedded in to schools’ Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs), on DVD), Level 7 has been used in a number of contexts but its primary use has been in careers guidance, citizenship and work readiness classes and it can be used in the classroom, at home or with parents or other key influencers.
The pay-off for the employer audience is better prepared applicants who can make the most of their opportunity to join an organisation and Level 7 can help young people raise their confidence levels when seeking employment.

ASBCAST Mini Lectures
The ASBCAST Mini Lectures ("Vigtigheden af kommunikation ved yringerat") from the Aarhus School of Business (ASB - http://www.asb.dk), University of Aarhus (http://www.au.dk/en) in Denmark are short videos that discuss several subjects of business communication. The viewer (student, teacher of external person) gets a short introduction to a theory, an issue or a current problem from the perspective of researchers from ASB. These mini lectures are targeted at students of degree programmes at bachelor and master level in business and communication studies at ASB, with an age range between 19 and 28 years old. The materials can be used as a standalone mini lecture or as part of a face-to-face lesson as they are reusable.
Students use the materials from home (on their computer or iPod) or in class, and the lecturers make use of the videos in class as well or in blended learning. “With more and more videos being recorded with international guest professors, it also gives students theopportunity to put a face on the authors of some of their reading materials. We have found that many students actually use the videos to supplement their reading material and as a preparation help before exams. With all the standard tools for embedding, sharing and syndicating, the videos are easily distributed and integrated by students, teachers and others.”
