Stanford University’s New Generation of History Assessments
This video won a 2013 Communicator Award of Distinction in the Online Video category. It was selected among thousands of entries for its distinctive creative work and for upholding a standard of excellence in marketing and communications.
We created this animation for Beyond the Bubble which unlocks the vast digital archive of the Library of Congress to create a new generation of history assessments. Developed by the Stanford History Education Group to “go beyond the bubble” by offering easy-to-use assessments that capture students’ knowledge in action – rather than their recall of discrete facts. Having George Washington take a multiple choice test to show “What would George do?” was a fun but informative way to introduce Beyond the Bubble to elementary, middle, and high school educators, faculty and administrations across the country.

Viewers love the video that Adelie Studios created to promote the launch of our website! It delivers important information about our materials in a funny, engaging manner. It was also a pleasure to work with Eric and his team. They were responsive to our requests, had great ideas, and did high quality work. We would definitely work with Adelie Studios again.
