Marquette University, Emerging and Social Media (ADPR4300)

In our second week we want to create the hub for all of the class assignments and information you will create throughout the semester. In class we will setup a Wordpress.com account for each student and complete the required assignments for setting up the blog, your user profile and an "About Me" page.

Additionally we will begin to explore the importance of branding yourself. As you prepare to enter the workforce, how can you set yourself apart from the competition. We will use the class to explore some key tenets of personal branding and begin to consider how your digital footprint contributes, or detracts, from your brand.

For more about the course please visit:

Thank you,
Dennis Jenders
