Marketing your organization on Linkedin

With 100 millions users on Linkedin, it's time to start paying attention to your Linkedin "Company Profile Page."

Linked is awesome because it’s network aware.When a Linkedin member views a company page they'll see if someone in their network works at that company. And, bonus, they’ll know if someone in their network recommends that company's products or services. That’s the most credible and authentic word-of-mouth advertising available.

Somebody on Linkedin is bound…

Personal vs. Organization Facebook page

Hey folks,

 

Looks like Facebook recently changed the procedure for converting personal pages (like many schools set up their initial Facebook forays) into organization pages.

 

http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?migrate

 

Improved, but still not seemless.

 

Cheers,

 

Svend

College web sites struggle to engage students

The announcement that the Gates Foundation Invests in Facebook App for College Studentsprompted our organization to look at what we're already doing on Facebook.

We do get more conversations on Facebook (particularly during events like last week’s blizzard!), but we only have about 2,300 people in our Facebook community. Impressive for for our Facebook efforts, but much smaller than our total student…

Why Your Schools Social Media Strategy Is Falling Behind.

Recently, a colleague of mine made me aware of this great white paper on schools and their social media strategy. It was very interesting and I thought I would share an excerpt with you.



"Two years ago, many administrators in higher education scoffed when they heard words like “tweet” and “poke.” Walk into an admissions office today, though, and you’ll no longer hear… Continue

A little about me

A little about me: I'm a middle-aged white-hat hacker who's been on "the net" since 1981 (on Arpanet, USEnet, Bitnet, CSNET, and USENET). I'm fascinated by the history of "the net" and "the web" for many years, and am passionate about the use of these technologies in education, both formal (university/vocational) and informal (DIY and self-education on a wide range of topics).



I'm a believer in interdisciplinary approaches to the web, as demonstrated by my having taught for 3.5 years… Continue

Develop an emergency action plan

Unfortunately, Pima Community College will always be associated with mass shooter Jared Lee Loughner. While the horrific incident didn't take place on their campus, it does remind us that any public space can be violated and that every organization needs an emergency action plan.

An Emergency Action Plan isn't just a nice-to-have. It's required by OSHA standards…

Make decisions based on quality data

An organization that practices accountability will be able to measure the success of their students and use that information to improve. Being accountable means tracking the money and efforts spent, then using statistical measurements to determine outcomes and finally, making those outcomes public.

Good resources for learning more about accountability systems:

  • NAICU, the National Association of Independent Colleges and…

Keeping users engaged with Facebook social plugins

At UCLA Happenings (UCLA's Campus Events Calendar), we are constantly trying to improve our site and keep our users engaged. A while back we integrated comments for every event via Facebook’s social plugins.



Facebook also makes it very easy to integrate these plugins with little work. In most cases, only a few lines of HTML code need to be added and you’re ready to go. We’ve seen…

Twitter Sites for other Universities

So I am working on building a twitter page similar to what NC State, Vanderbilt, and Boston University have and I noticed that today that Boston and Vanderbilt has lost their timeline area as well as I have on the one that I am working with it. It seems that NCSU is the only one that is still up and running. If anyone from Vanderbilt or Boston has any input on this let me know. I'm not sure what is going on unless something has become outdated in the source code that we all use.

Sorta New to WebDev.

I have just recently moved into the web side of IT. My previous 10 years have been primarily focused on email systems. Several years ago a project came about that required integrating email account / active directory maintenance into a web interface. I wrote much of then interface using php, a MySQL back-end, and a bunch of late nights. I have been hooked on web dev every since. I love to pickup odd projects and run with them, the more bizarre the better. This has ultimately brought to my… Continue
