OTD Prep:"Sales in the Global Market"

In preparation for your presentations, we're sharing the video below, "Sales in the Global Market," showing VE students at Rhodes State College participating in Online Trading Day. We encourage you to share this video with your students so that they get a sense on what to expect next week. After watching the videos we would welcome any feedback from you and/or your students using the faculty and student surveys listed below.

IVE Students at Rhodes State College apply their knowledge of science and technology to a simulated venture in a global enterprise network. They create websites to buy and sell products in an e-commerce platform. In this episode students pitch their business to a network of fellow student entrepreneurs across the world.

After watching the "Sales in the Global Market" video, you may complete an anonymous and voluntary survey.
