Open to all unl students.

Name, Image, Likeness is a hot topic with recent NCAA rule changes, and these opportunities may be new to student-athletes, but they are not new to student creators. This pop-up course will use learnings from the early stages of the college NIL marketplace, as well as the expertise from 10 years of connecting hundreds of brands with thousands of pro athletes, to help students understand how to navigate these opportunities as effectively as possible. These real-world lessons also apply to all students as they prepare themselves for the job market.

The world of digital media is ever evolving and fast moving.

Open to all unl students.

In this course, co-instructors Dr. Andrew Hanna and Mike Smith (founder of The Bay and Stanford-certified Life Design facilitator) will use the entrepreneurial skillset of “design thinking” to address a student problem of the utmost importance: The inability to design your life and career. This class offers a framework, tools and a community of peers and mentors where you’ll address this problem through assigned readings, reflections and exercises. The final deliverable will be the creation of an “Odyssey Plan” focusing on taking action in the 3-5 years following graduation from the university.

In the U.S., 26% of people aged 18 to 24 have recently used Instagram specifically to access coronavirus news. The platform provides countless opportunities for brands, businesses and organizations, from non-profits and for profits to large news organizations to tell stories and connect a message with a consumer. In this course, students will take a deep dive into the Instagram platform researching best practices, ethics and learning the ins and out of how to create and measure content. Students will learn and create content for the grid, stories, IGTV, reels, Instagram live and eCommerce to best leverage the platform to accomplish strategic communication goals.

The Super Bowl of Advertising

ONLINE | 1/23 - 2/25
Open to all unl students.

In this class, we will take a look at the history of Super Bowl advertising, examine the game-changing ads that became part of the cultural zeitgeist, and discuss many of the hits, misses and buzz-generating campaigns throughout the years. Because the class takes place during Super Bowl LVII, we’ll also stay on top of the industry hype leading up to the game, do a post-game analysis of the winners and losers, and try to answer the question, “Is it really worth $5 million for just 30-seconds or is it nothing more than a flex on the part of clients and agencies with big budgets and even bigger egos?”
