Hinds Community College in Mississippi made an interesting choice of photo to advertise their online learning programs on their website and then attempted to add a touch of humor about the goat.
I recognize that the idea is online education is for everyone no matter their age or location (as long as they aren’t a goat) but this image doesn’t really do much for me. Neither do the stock photos on the right.
Let’s face it: advertising online programs is tough. Just try searching for stock photos of someone at a computer who doesn’t have a cheesy smile (I don’t recall ever smiling while doing school work) or doesn’t have either a dated laptop or dated fashion and you’ll discover how daunting it is.
Give Hinds credit for trying.
