Nice to Meet You National Geographic Traveler

National Geographic Traveler

I have been searching around for links referring to MyDenmarkTV and I was really happy to have found a brief review by National Geographic Traveler.

Thanks to Kelly Corrigan from National Geographic Traveler who reviewed the MyDenmarkTV project and shared her review on the National Geographic Traveler website. This is what Kelly wrote:

“MyDenmarkTV.com

While this site virtually takes you to such places as the Copenhagen Opera House and the University of Copenhagen, its three hosts—Katie Rice, Liyuan, and Julie Tran—also explain the ins and outs of daily life in Denmark, such as recycling habits, the drinking culture, cost of living, and the library system”.

We are glad to know that our efforts have been spotted by National Geographic and it is definitely a big honor for the whole team also because what Kelly wrote is exactly what we are doing i.e. not only showing you the places but everyday life things while being in Denmark.

More importantly, and as our advisor, Paul Tyler mentioned “What’s really nice is that they talk about you [MyDenmarkTV] in terms of a TV show and not a website. The language is TV not so much web (which is the way the Internet is going…i.e. more audio visual and ironically more linear content) for example they mention ‘hosts’ and ‘takes you’. It’s this kind of language that I’d argue should be used, making a virtue out of the fact that this is ‘sit back and be entertained’ television whilst also informing and educating – all very Reithian.”

Just wanted to share :) and stay tuned!

Woohooo, MyDenmarkTV’s Blog Is Out Now

MyDenmarkTV.com

MyDenmarkTV

Here we go! Finally, our blog is here where we will be freeing our some thoughts out, sharing some great resources, providing screencasts of useful websites and much more.

To begin with I just wanted to very quickly remind you that as of now, MyDenmark TV weekly show contains 5 segments, which are:

1. Did you know?  – One fact about Denmark.
2. Everyday Life    – Practical tip and/or piece of advice.
3. Culture & Food – Intricacies of the Danish culture and food.
4. Study & Work   – This section is for those who want to study or work in Denmark
5. Fun & Entertainment – Fun stuff to do in Denmark.

The host of the show is Julie Tran. Update! In Episode #5 we will be introducing Katie Rice as a co-host to Julie. So stay tuned in as there will be lots of interesting things to share about.

Reminder: The show is absolutely free and the viewers can ask us a burning question, the answer to which may appear in the next episode. We are thinking of even introducing different prizes for asking questions. Is not that cool to get something valuable and get your question answered all with one shot?

It was just a brief update and from now on you can and should visit this section more frequently because it will the place for periodic updates of the things not covered in the show itself. And we will of course all (team members of MyDenmarkTV.com) try to update the blog.

Thanks once again for checking out the Blog. And see you soon for Episode #4 – Special edition – culture and food (hint-hint: Julie’s friend invited her and some other friends over for a typical Danish lunch and outdoor grill dinner)
