Visibility Exchange

April 29, 2009

Visibility Exchange
http://www.visibilityexchange.com/

Visibility Exchange allows companies to leverage their audience by exchanging visibility in their newsletters for comparable exposure. Their tag line pretty much says it all – “Your audience for my audience – DEAL!” Visibility Exchange is all about leveraging your existing resources in order to gain exposure without the need to tap into your marketing budget. In this case, the resource you are leveraging is your subscriber database. Are they suggesting that you give others access to your database? – ABSOLUTELY NOT. All they are talking about here is simply allowing someone to advertising in your newsletter or to your database of subscribers, in exchange for them allowing you to do the same. The idea is to locate non-competitive members within a group who cater to your desired demographic, and structure a relationship that would allow each party to gain exposure to the others audience without money changing hands.

Librarian of Congress James H. Billington proposed the establishment of a World Digital Library (WDL) in a speech to the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO in June 2005. The Library of Congress is currently engaged in a planning process to determine how this vision can be realized. Participants in the planning process include national libraries and other libraries and cultural institutions from around the world that have expressed interest in joining the project, as well as UNESCO and IFLA. The planning process is being underwritten by a gift from Google, Inc. This has been added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

NASA relies on the Classroom of the Future in a variety of roles. They lead the review of new educational products before they can become available through the NASA website. They coordinate the education programming on NASA Television. They investigate how the Second Life virtual world can help students better learn NASA science. They benchmark the field of educational technology to show what works and what doesn’t. The role of the Classroom of the Future is ever changing to meet the needs of NASA as it seeks to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery, and aeronautics research. The Classroom of the Future currently is working on four projects: 1) NASA Television, 2) NASA product review, 3) The EdTech Collaborative, and 4) MoonWorld.
