Abstract: A key activity in any assurance of learning process is to identify learning deficiencies and then to develop and implement tools and strategies to correct the deficiencies. The activity is often referred to as “closing the loop.” This paper describes a process whereby the College of Business’s Board of Advisors is engaged in a series of short videos. On the videos they talk about the College’s learning goals and the importance of the goals to the business community. The inventory of short videos is made available to all faculty who can insert them into their presentation software to help close the loop. The development and use of the videos is described. Additional benefits of the videos that go beyond closing the loop are also discussed.

Keywords: closing the loop, short videos, Assurance of Learning, learning goals, board of advisors
