The Hubert Portfolio of Products contains three distinct product lines: Video Briefs, e-Cases, and the e-Study. Each of these products serves a different purpose and is to be deployed in a variety of ways.

  • Video BriefVideo Briefs are intended to set the frame of discussion around a particular topic or skill in public affairs. Instructors may choose to have students watch the videos on their own, but they’ve been designed to be short introductions for use during a class or training session without overly depleting an instructor’s time with their students.
  • E-CaseE-Cases are perhaps most easily recognizable as an evolution of tradition written teaching cases. E-Cases present a strong linear narrative of a case through video, text, charts and graphs. These multimedia materials provide more depth and emotional understanding, enriching users understanding of the case and its context. Like previous generations of teaching cases, many e-Cases are decision forcing with the content assembled to inspire users to make difficult decisions.
  • E-StudyE-Study: a brief study of a timely policy issue or useful management tools. Utilizing multimedia content, these products can serve to contextualize emerging policy issues and management approaches.
