Guido Baumhauer tackles ten questions with the EBU
Guido Baumhauer, DW’s Director of Distribution, recently took time for a Q&A with the EBU, covering everything from the future of media to the Hunger Games and Jane Fonda. Onw of his insights has to do with using social media outside of the office:
“It is redefining how we all receive and redistribute our information and how we communicate. As a communication platform and information channel, social media provides a great opportunity for people to find and share information and news from many reliable sources.
I love this new freedom of the former “recipient” – when something big happens, social media channels are often faster than traditional sources and I rely on my smartphone. But to be honest, I don’t need to share pictures of my dinner on Facebook and Twitter via Instagram – I concentrate on eating it instead.”

Another season of Jojo
Deutsche Welle launched its second season of “Jojo sucht das Glück” today at the International German Olympics (IDO) in Frankfurt. The innovative language-learning web soap is designed to give younger people an interesting look at life, love and language… German style. The first season premiered in July 2010 and has assembled an impressive fan base since then. The Jojo fan page on Facebook also gives German students insights into the life of their favorite German exchange student. The concept won over the jury of the German Network of E-Learning Protagonists (D-ELAN) and the association honored Jojo with its innovation prize at the start of 2011 – calling it a “well-rounded e-learning package with custom-tailored use of various media and learning formats”.
Andre Moeller, who is in charge of DW’s German courses, thinks that highlighting an international relationship is a great way to make learning grammar and vocabulary fun. In season two, they will also be exploring more cultural information.
