Hello Digital Media Judges!

The DMSC’s Governor’s Challenge Digital Media Tournament is upon us and it’s time to recruit this year’s crop of judges. We’d love to have you join us as well as help spread the word to your friends and colleagues that the fun is about to start! Last year, we had a record 111 judges from six countries participating in the peer-review model judging process. We want to break that record!

The Digital Media Sandbox Consortium (DMSC) is a regional association of academic and business partnerships engaged in creating intellectual and media assets. Much in the way that a football team brings value to a college in economic terms, we believe that media and intellectual assets have value too. The tournament mentioned above is a competition where faculty and student created media assets are peer reviewed by the academic, business, and design community. The winning assets then become part of the growing DMSC asset database.

Please follow the link, , to learn more about what we are doing and how you can become a judge. There is ample opportunity to get involved and network. If you think you’ve got an eye for what professional quality work looks like, and are interested in providing feedback for students so they can become better designers, we would love for you to become one of our judges. You do not have to be a designer to be a judge. Please follow the link above to learn more and forward this email to individuals and mailing lists or discussion boards where like-spirited folk may frequent.


  • Register judges: May 1-31, 2009
  • Judging period: June 1–30, 2009
  • Announce Winners: August 15, 2009, to kick off DMSC Governor’s Challenge 09 2.2.

It has been a good year for the Digital Media Sandbox Consortium and we are forming roots across the Southeastern, Southcentral and now Northwestern United States. Please help us foster the integration of digital media in higher education as well as celebrate its pioneers!

Look forward to announcements regarding the final deadline for submissions (still welcome at ETSU’s I-tunes U site!) as the deadline is being extended slightly to allow greater participation. Register as a judge early so that we can keep in touch!

Best wishes and many thanks for your participation!

- The staff at the Digital Media Sandbox Consortium

Welcome to Enterprise Engagement: Quantify Your Quality

March 26th, 2009

Leadership guru Peter Drucker says all employees are managers. That declaration is indeed innovative in some cultures.

e-Engagement takes it further: Each individual is an enterprise of one. In concert with others.

Also: All individuals are entrepreneurs of self. Entrepreneurship is a state of mind, a disposition toward life and its opportunities.

We are the artists of who we were, who we are, and who we will be.

In community, we often find our greatest resources poorly cultivated. Conflict remains the primary driver of change. e-Engagement moves from asset-based thinking, rather than fear-based thinking.

If change is a constant, prepare accordingly.

Therefore, e-Engagement designs, measures and enhances intentional sustainability for the 21st Century.

And beyond.

For the individual in her/his local community.

And beyond.
