Title: Leveraging Social Media for Student Engagement
Date: Wednesday, Mar 3rd 2010
Time: 3-4:15pm EST
Abstract: Most research concludes that at least 90% of college students have an active online social networking account. That means, to fully engage this generation, Student Affairs needs to understand and utilize the new world of MyTwubeBook. This webinar will cover Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, and Ning to provide you with enough knowledge to effectively implement a strategy to increase student engagement at your institution.

- The webinar has limited 'seating' to allow for more participant's questions to be answered during Q&A.
- The webinar is for educational institutions. If you do not register with a .edu email account, we reserve the right to refund your money.
