lecture / presentation description
Blackboard Learn Service Pack 11 offers users the opportunity to integrate popular social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, into academic content. Students will be able to create profiles and choose settings to open the information to classmates, institution students, or students around the world. This session explores the processes Purdue University enacted to determine how these new features intersect with current social media policies, and addresses the academic and administrative opportunities and challenges that must be considered prior to implementation.
