Learn more in the USA  PlusDiscamus is a six-minute animated film about learning more. Our Virtual Internship Team created the short film to celebrate's 10th Anniversary Online.

The title PlusDiscamus comes from the Latin phrase for learn more. One of our Malaysian interns initially resisted: Do you think everyone will get it? Well, probably not. But our target market is not everyone. We want to target academically-gifted 18- to 60-year olds around the world -- those who have been exposed to advanced studies, perhaps including the Latin language. And it so happens that Latin is pretty hip these days:

Learn more is purposely broad, intended to invoke several interpretations:

  • To study further
  • To acquire more information
  • To gain more knowledge in the USA than you would in other countries, which reflects the increasingly competitive nature of international education

So what? Why is this important to you? We've heard colleagues complain that all of the good branding slogans have already been used. Not so; not by a long shot. We have the privilege of working in international education, where we can literally tap the world for fresh ideas. Still, in this age of identifying uniqueness among campuses, it might be time to harken back to your roots.
