Social Media in Higher Education


Anyone can create an online course. On the other hand, making it an engaging and educational experience is a whole other question.  

In this simulcast of FIR on Higher Education episode 7 Kevin Anselmo interviews Eric Schwartzman talks about how to make content interesting and educational in an online learning format.

Eric has been conducting social media trainings in different parts of the world for several years.

He recently took his courses online through his company which helps employers manage risk and scale engagement through innovative online social media training courseware. 

He talks about how to deliver curriculum online versus in person, the importance of high quality production and the future of MOOCs, among other related topics.  

Also on episode 7, Harry Hawk gives an update on how he has integrated Twitter into his classroom, while I provide a short book review on why Gini Dietrich’s new book Spin Sucks is an important read for higher education communicators, administrators and academics.
