DeVry sponsors Webb Alert, shows big ed has nose for new media after all

One of my favorite podcasts is WebbAlert, a technology news show hosted by Morgan Webb, highlighting daily tech news and social media memes. It's daily, no more than about six minutes per episode, and Webb does a good job of covering the geek news I need with a ripe sarcasm I crave.


For the last few weeks, WebbAlert has had a compelling new sponsor: DeVry University. It's a perfect match -- while I know very little about the place, I know they have technical and gaming programs that fit the market of the show. But more important than that, it shows that the adult education industry is dipping its toes into some more progressive waters.
