American Youth & Social Media

An excellent piece of research on how American (U.S.) youth use social media has just been published. The research should be used to inform the development of online learning courses and programs. I highly recommend reading the study (or at least the two-page summary).

Guest Lectures

I have been preparing materials for the MKT:595 Internet Marketing class here at DePaul. Some experts in the industry have kindly offered to be filmed for the upcoming classes. Ed Brill came into DePaul last Thursday and we filmed him against a greenscreen. We should have this footage converted to RealMedia and iTunes/iPod/iPhone clips fairly shortly. I am really excited about having industry experts available to our students in this format. I find that there is only so much information that can be processed in a “live” class. Having access to engaging presentations in a portable, recorded format improves the learning experience. So far we have been lucky to gain the insight of: I have a few more folks preparing to be filmed over the next month. I think DePaul students will love to see these guest lectures.
