The Weekly SPI Debrief - January 13, 2012

By Marla Krueger, Station Products & Innovation  

Welcome to the Weekly PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation Debrief, which is designed to give PBS stations a rundown of product updates and opportunities announced this week on our blog.

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday, PBS will be closed on Monday, January 16th, 2012.  

If you are looking to start off the New Year in an engaging and educational fashion, we suggest attending some of this month’s public media webinars. We have updated the SPI blog Professional Development Calendar (PDC) located in the the right rail. Follow the link at the end of this spot for more PDC highlights. 

We will be hosting a series of webinars to help showcase and discuss discipline-specific topics relevant to Station Bento.  RSVP to the links below to reserve your seat:

Did you take the Station Bento Survey yet? Please take a moment to respond to a systemwide survey, available to help gather station feedback for further developing Station Bento: Five randomly selected responders will receive a PBS Interactive prize package including Downton Abbey season 2 DVDs. The survey is open through January 31, so answer away.

Speaking of Downtown Abbey, our Station Spotlight this week highlights WETA's remarkable success with their online Downtown Abbey personality quiz that went viral almost immediately. Follow the link below to learn more.   

The SPI team would like to highlight your station celebrating Black History Month. If you have something you'd like to share, please contact by January 20th. 

Finally, the Station Products & Innovation team welcomed a new intern this week. Joy Loving will serve as SPI’s spring intern, working on several upcoming projects. Read more about her social media interests below. 

    As always, the SPI team appreciates all of your valuable comments and participation on our site this week and every week.
