Social Media in Higher Education Summit

Tuesday, June 9, 2009
1:00 pm - 3:00 PM (Eastern)

Originating from the 2009 Penn State Web Conference

HashTag #smsummit


Come join me at this virtual summit as we explore the challenges and opportunities of social media in higher education. The format will be much different than a typical workshop. Following the principles of an unconference, we will leverage the wisdom of the crowd in an open environment where everyone's participation is encouraged.

In addition to those attending in person we will be using Adobe Connect to stream the event live and allow our virtual attendees to participate in the proceedings. The URL for the summit is http://breeze.psu.edu/psuwebsms.

Update, June 8: You will need to create a "Friends of Penn State Account" to participate. A link and instructions are available at http://breeze.psu.edu/psuwebsms.

We will will be utilizing social media to create a backchannel to let people from across the globe participate virtually. For those of you who want to participate on Twitter, delicious, Flickr, etc., the hashtag for the event is #smsummit

I have added an instance for the Social Media Summit at the Harvard’s Live Question Tool:

Dan -

Yes, we do plan on making a recording of the event.

Looks really interesting, but it's on during my evening commute here in London, UK :-(
Will a recording of the summit be accessible after the event?

Thanks! Looking forward to it even more now. :)

Jon -

Login will NOT be required to attend. Sorry for the mistake on the e-mail.

Will there be any discussion on Marketing Online programs via social media?
Comment by Jon Boyd on May 28, 2009 at 10:04am
Mark, will you kindly resolve an ambiguity? On this Ning page, it says that login will not be required during the summit, but in the email to uwebd, it says the opposite ("Please note the login will be required during the summit."). Which is it? And if login WILL be required, how can we get the credentials?

As I said via Twitter, we've had much success at Penn State events using Harvard’s Live Question Tool to help engage and direct audiences, both locally and those participating from a distance. The Live Question Tool is an online service that lets a group of people submit questions, reply to questions, and vote on questions that they would like to see addressed. We heard about the tool when Cole Camplese and Chris Millet went to the Berkman@10 conference. Simply go to http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/questions/chooser.php and create a new instance for smsummit. The questions with the most votes are then deemed most important or most relevant to the audience. We then project this page on one of our displays at the front of the room so that everyone can watch the progression of the discussion and is a great way to add to the backchannel.
