Get Your Brainyflix in Gear

The MIT Alumni Association is really trying to pump up students for the SAT with an “SAT Word” video contest called Brainyflix.  High school students create videos for the words in their word bank and can win up to $600.  They also get a chance to earn iTunes music downloads too.

I think the contest is a great idea, but the only downside is that the top vids will be chosen by votes, which leads to larger schools winning the top prizes.  I wish they’d change it to a jury of top MIT students to pick the best vids.

I’m planning to make it an assignment for my video tech kids for this coming semester.  The deadline is March 16, but don’t delay.
