How do you bring the industry to life online?

I work very hard to insure that the information, content, and resources I use in class are the most current and relevant available—very often preferring not to use a text as by the time the information is published it is too old. I also use my professional network to bring in the perspectives of current industry executives. I also work hard to utilize current technology both online and in the class to better engage students in the learning process.
