I'm not always one to chase trends: for the record I always thought social bookmarking was a weird idea. But if you're looking for a cool way to make your homepage stand out then I really like the idea of a full bleed background video. I've got one on my homepage and I've seen businesses do it but until recently I hadn't seen it on a school homepage.
Check out these two schools who are using Wistia as the video host and onMessage as the web platform to create a stunning effect. I didn't have anything to do with the videos or the sites... I just think they look pretty awesome.
What do you think? Do you have a background video on your homepage? Are you planning it? Let us know in the comments!
