My professional use of social media and communication tools

Challenge to Learn

These streams can be fed by other tools like Twitter, Linkedin and Google reader and I love it. Linkedin is an important application for me (although I don’t like their mobile app at all), I use it a lot to network and connect to people. Easygenerator also has a Linkedin group and I take part in a few other groups. For me Linkedin is the central social application, my tweets and blog post are also published on my Linkedin page, it is my professinal homepage on the web.

How to Use Social Media for E-Learning

ICDTranslation

Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc. Some of the most popular social media platforms that can be used as e-learning platforms are: Facebook. Facebook is heavily used as a learning platform since it is easily accessible and gives you opportunity to share any kind of information and files. The main downfall of Facebook is that it’s quite easy to get distracted by all the other posts and notifications going on.

This may have something to do with the age of my S4, but I recently read that Facebook is getting serious about resolution. Yet I struck more problems. However a more pressing problem was that my photo sphere was rendering in Maps as a photo. I’m late to the party, but finally I’ve gotten my hands onto Google Cardboard.

Our Take on Google+

E-learning Uncovered

If I were to start over, I could see using Google+ over Facebook or Twitter. But the problem is, I’m NOT starting over. JU: I think it’s the best of Twitter plus the best of Facebook. But Google+ also encourages deeper communication by having no character limit and keeping the whole conversation in one place (one strength of Facebook). For now, I see these as advantages that Google+ doesn’t have (yet), so I still plan to use LinkedIn just as much now as before.

Facebook, aka social networking. Facebook is the prime place for people to connect, and studies have shown that college students (i.e., those entering the workforce) prefer using Facebook to discussion forums hosted within an LMS. Many MOOCs have Facebook pages set up either by the instructors or by groups of ambitious students. Blogs are excellent options for courses that require individual reflection and problem-solving.

Change Management Strategy: Use Social Media

Social mediums such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Yammer may be used as Knowledge Networks to share information related to change within the organization, as opposed to receiving information through more formal and traditional training methods.

Do the same for Twitter and LinkedIn. It’s free, it takes two seconds, and you never know who might end up on your page because they clicked a link in your LinkedIn bio (or your email signature ). Plan to run campaigns on Google AdWords first, and Facebook second.

However between Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, iTunes and all the other growing social networking platforms, this can be a daunting task. If it’s on Facebook, do Facebook things. Facebook viewers tend to watch videos more passively; so edited videos need to be shorter (20 seconds to a minute long). There is not always a one-size-fits all video and Facebook is a great way to reach many because there are so many more choices. Start with Facebook Live.
