Online Instructors: Are You Effectively Using Social Media?

And from yesterday’s inbox…

Online Learning Consortium -
What Do Your Tweets Say About You as an Online Instructor?
Dear Michael,

In a recent blog post on OLC Insights, “What Do Your Tweets Say About You as an Online Instructor?,” we discuss the increasing importance of understanding how to use social media in the classroom and for professional networking.

“If you’ve questioned how best to increase your use of social media for career purposes, or want to better communicate with and instruct an ‘always on’ student population, you’ll find that there aren’t many formal courses for social media application in the context of higher education.”

Luckily, OLC offers courses to help. Learn from Francy Johnson’s experience in OLC’s Social Media Mastery Series – the next cohort starts May 3rd!


“This was the most positive PD experience I have had in my 20+ years of teaching. The instructor made learning fun, so it didn’t feel like work. I learned skills that I use every day in both my regular and online courses.”

-Francy Johnson, Teacher and Advisor, The Anglo-American School of Moscow
