social media: Tweeting is about Branding

link to article

Branding messages do three things: 1) create awareness, 2) try to convince consumers that a product or service is a solution to their problem, and 3) create a feeling of familiarity and relationship with the consumer, commonly known as “brand affinity.” That’s why most SMB TV commercials show the owner, staff, and premises onscreen or are narrated by the owner. Twenty years ago, advertising provided the same kind of social edge that good social media reviews do today. A typical broadcast media pitch to an advertiser would suggest that commercial messaging was subliminally greeted by consumers as if it was a referral from friends. (My first job was selling radio time, and frankly this pitch was well-enough accepted to justify repetitive spot buys.)

Instead of commercials, develop a content marketing strategy that reinforces the brand message without being pushy. Get customers and allies to define their brands for and with them via social media, and supplement call to action media buys with online loyalty and deals programs that drive immediate business.

TechEd Soiree Teaching with D2L: Lockers versus Dropbox

What are Lockers:
The Locker is an electronic storage area for you to store your files. You can upload and download files from any computer and use them in D2L or transfer them from one computer to another. Only the owner of the Locker can view its contents unless the owner decides to mark something as public. If something is public than anyone that is in a D2L Course Site the owner is also in can see this file.

What is Dropbox: https://mnsite.ims.mnscu.edu/shared/_instructor_and_coursedesigner_help/learningenvironment/dropbox/about_dropbox.htm  http://web.mnstate.edu/instrtech/scmodules/d2l/students/dropbox/dropbox_print.htmlThe Dropbox provides a convenient way for students to electronically submit individual and group assignments and is a great way to have a paperless or nearly paperless course. You can provide feedback, assign grades, and return submissions with track changes all from a single location.

Overlap: students can submit assignments in their lockers and mark them public and instructor can set up a group dropbox, where students can see each other assignments.

Dropbox is much more “potent” tool to handle assignments (one can leave feedback, connect with “grading” etc.)

Both lockers and dropbox are used in a close conjunction with “Groups,” which will be discussed in our next TechEd Soiree

Clickers (Classroom Response System)

what kind of clickers are you using?

what kind of clickers are you familiar with?

what qualities in clickers do you find useful, necessary, obligatory for your course[s]?

At the moment SCSU is still considering eInstruction http://www.einstruction.com/ as its default clicker system (clickers sold in the Bookstore)

However, faculty on campus are slowly adopting other systems:

while each of these systems appeal differenetly to different faculty from different disciplines, having a standard, campus-wide clicker system has also strong advantages.
