How often is this site updated?

The AIU Success Stories website was created for this campaign specifically and as such is not regularly updated.

Briefly describe this site’s objectives and how it has met those objectives to date (up to 200 words):

With our campaign microsite at AIUstories.com, American InterContinental University (AIU) aimed to communicate this differentiating message of guidance and support: “When you commit to earning your degree, we commit to you.” By leveraging our three-part documentary video series, “AIU Success Stories,” as the focal point of the website, we deliver this message through the voices and experiences of our own alumni. When you meet these three people, you’re seeing the essence of AIU and the value we deliver to students. As users progress through the site, this message is reinforced with powerful quotes and hard-hitting data points, along with staged calls to action providing access points to more information.

Since the site was launched in August, we’ve registered 479,010 total page views with an average time on site of 1 minute, 45 seconds. The videos have received more than 1.97 million views (via the microsite and other channels).
