Teaching Advertising with Youtube Videos – A Collection of short clips from and about the advertising industry

Mar 02

I love using short youtube videos to demonstrate something when I teach certain concepts in advertising or creativity. They are funny, engaging, well thought/filmed, and they get students excited about the topic. I’ve put together a collection of some of the tubes I use in class.

I’d love to keep this post alive – feel free to add your comments and share videos you use to teach advertising.

Before we start, here are a few online resources / tools on the topic. I’ll update this list with more links later (feel free to add your suggestions in the comments section below):

  1. Do you know of any websites that have award winning print ads? I know CLIO but someone told me there is a TED site. Any thoughts of suggestions on any print sites?

  2. yes, there are many listed on our menu (to the right). Look under the ADS category, the AWARDS or the AWARD SHOWS… TED is a great conference but it’s not advertising related.

    cheers,
    a.

  3. I am not positive the place you are getting your information, however great topic. I must spend some time finding out more or understanding more. Thank you for magnificent information I was looking for this information for my mission.

  4. I quite like reading through a post that will make men and
    women think. Also, thank you for allowing me to comment!

  5. “Teaching Advertising with Youtube Videos – A Collection of short clips from and about the advertising industry” was in fact extremely
    enjoyable and useful! In modern society honestly, that is challenging to manage.
    With thanks, Diego
