A Tale of Two Tweets

On Dec 19 , after reading an article by  John Rampton, Why most colleges dont teach Internet Marketing , I tweeted & copied Coursera Founder , Prof Andrew Ng , whose lecture I attended at one of the IBM Education conference. 

.@johnrampton great write up. The solution is to offer #DigitalMarketing as a #MOOC http://t.co/B6FYRQV083 cc @AndrewYNg #education Dec 19, 2014

Exactly, within 15 days , I received a revert from Vishal Sachdev, Director @ Univ of Illinois, Urbana Champaign, that solution I proposed has been implemented.

RT @vishalsachdev: @rucsb Solution implemented @uiucbusiness and @coursera https://t.co/c6Z2Xj3bq5 cc @johnrampton @AndrewYNg Jan 04, 2015 

Whoa.

Such is the power of internet, when information flows freely without boundaries of hierarchy or power.

Reminds me of New clue From Cluetrain Manifesto ( Source- Doc Searls and David Weinberger)  – On the Net, we are the medium. We are the ones who move messages. We do so every time we post or retweet, send a link in an email, or post it on a social network.

Digital Marketing course starts in April 2015, for all those who care about Digital and Marketing stuff.

The title of the post is a new blogpost by Abhijit Bhaduri . He asks the big question –
Why are CEOs/ CMOs not present on Social Media ?
Read out the full article here  

My 2 cents –

Abhijit, I am glad you wrote this article. High time that CXOs onboard the Social media flight as you aptly mentioned concept of Leadership is evolving. Leaders like yourself who walk the talk are perfect role models when it comes to Social Media Adoption. Some would take to the new medium as fish to water . The authentic ones are out there, participating & shaping up conversations about their Brand . While others (risk averse) are still mulling over pros & cons , they may require Coaching & Handholding. I discovered an article which would interest you, it represents an interesting picture of engaged CEOs on Social Media .

How to find blog of your interest : Screenr

By now you must have already heard of Twitter , which has taken the Social Media world by storm or already using it , If the answer is NO to any of the above, then you must be living under rock age.

Well, as educators, many a times , when we are helping learners to use the online technologies, we need to share screencasts with them. Screenr does a brilliant job in capturing screencasts upto 5 min with audio feature to be posted on Twitter or You tube.
1. Screenr is a Web basec recorder, you dont need to download anything.
2. It can be used either with Mac or PC.
3. Plays anywhere on Web, even iphone.
4. Moreover,it is free.

Relatively simple tool to educate learners to use Social Media sites, and tools , who are new to google reader, tweetdeck. It can be used to deliever simple 5 min powerful learning. Like using a google reader, using a tweetdeck for twitter and so on.

Share with me your thoughts as to how you would like to use screenr in your job .
