MKT 595: Internet and Interactive Marketing (Sep 5 - Nov 20, 2012)

MKT 595

I will be teaching MKT 595 (Internet and Interactive Marketing) again this year. The class will be taught asynchronously entirely online through the Desire2Learn LMS. The new syllabus is still being worked on, but you can download the old syllabus from here. Once ready, the new syllabus will be posted in the same location.

I would highly suggest you read the teaching evaluations if you are interested in taking the course with me. I have posted evaluations for each time I have taught the class. You can also contact me if you have questions about the course. Registration takes place via Campus Connection. Please note that the class capacity is 40, but there is a reserve capacity rule for overlap courses between Computational Finance and BIT (includes COMFN, CMPFN, MSMIS, MINFO, KGSB). MKT 555 is a prerequisite for this course.

Class announcements and items of interest are posted via Twitter (@MKT595).


Bliss Control: Manage all your social network settings


Bliss Control is a nice little website that provides (ifttt-inspired) links to configure your social media settings. Worth a look.


Soapbox - Presentation/Teaching Tool for Educators


Raman Chadha (of the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center) sent me information about a new presentation/teaching tool that looks interesting. Soapbox is “designed to help teachers and speakers better engage their audiences and assess their learning.”

I have seen other tools (or combination of tools) so something similar (i.e.
clickers, Twitter, Poll Everywhere), but I think I will give this a shot (and have signed up for an account). Waiting to see how well this works. The one piece of advice I have for the software developers is to employ a different voice for the demo video (see below) - more enthusiasm would be appreciated…..


Teaching with Twitter and Google Wave

I am due to present at the 26th Annual Conference on Distance Teaching and Learning on Friday, August 6th, 2010 (Teaching with Twitter and Google Wave). Somewhat ironically Twitter is down and Google has announced that it will discontinue Wave. So it goes.

The presentation is from 12:45 - 1:30 p.m. in the Hall of Ideas J. Come along and say hello.

Handouts and more information are on the website.

If Twitter works, then I will be tweeting with the hashtag #DTL_2010_jmoore
