Wv Uexplore Wv Uexplore Presentation Transcript

  • A Little Exploring
  • Right Now (at wvu.edu) Student Goals: 1. Find People Like Them 2. Join a Group 3. Learn and contribute (Find a mentor / be a mentor)
  • 1. Find People Like Them At WVU a) Facebook b) Directory http://directory.wvu.edu/
  • The Challenges with Facebook 1) Which group to join?
  • The Challenges with Facebook 2) Wall posting is not so great for finding people who share attributes. http://tinyurl.com/5nkwyu
  • The Challenges with the Directory 1. Can only search by name or email. (not major, res. hall, interests, etc.) 2. Student can only opt out. (no granular control) 3. Not attached to digital identity. (Facebook has approx. 90% adoption. 3-30% of your students use something with a feed. e.g. a blog, twitter, etc.)
  • 2. Join Groups / Clubs / Orgs a) Facebook (official) b) Official Website List (nice job with this! : ) c) Facebook Unofficial
  • 2. Join Groups Challenges: 1. Does the student find the right group? 2. How do leaders recruit? 3. Which groups are active? Which leaders work? 4. Very difficult to assess involvement, esp. with FB. (Assessment and improvement of this process is great for retention) 5. Student group activity is buried on their blogs.
  • 2. Contribute to the WVU Community (only 3-30% of your community is ready to “give back” but they are your best and can be a big help. Think wiki contribution patterns here.) a) Facebook b) Official Website Submit (nice job with this! : )
  • This is great stuff, but it’s 5 clicks deep. This is the 3-30% at work. http://wvubiodieselproject.blogspot.com/
  • What if . . . One system could serve your: 1. Directory 2. Groups / Clubs / Orgs 3. Digital Commons (aggregate student /groups feeds) And provide assessment?
  • 1. Students create an account as soon as they are accepted. They connect it to Facebook to verify identity and get initial interest tags. (those that use other online tools can add anything else to their profile) }
  • This database powers the official WVU directory. . . (basically, it’s a directory “widget” embedded in the wvu website.)
  • . . . and a directory in Facebook. (as a Facebook application)
  • . . . and of course: Benefits http://wvu.redroverhq.com 1. Easy to find people in common 2. Increased community 3. Creates massive content (feeds) from your top 3-30% of students.
  • 2. Official Clubs are uploaded into system (using excel doc). Student leaders attach their web tools (including FB groups) to their group profile. (they can use any tool they want.) } Physics Club
  • This database powers the official WVU group page. . . Physics Club (basically, it’s a student org. page “widget”)
  • This database powers the official WVU group page. . . Physics And provides customized recommendations Club per student based on their interests.
  • This database powers the official WVU group page. . . Physics Students can join groups right on this Club page.
  • . . . and Facebook is synced . . . . . . so student joining a group at either the WVU site or Facebook notifies the student leader and is tracked.
  • Leader notification email: Jada Smith
  • Benefits 1. Recommendations increase group joining 2. Online recruitment and notification improves leader effectiveness 3. Facebook / Website sync increases assessment accuracy 4. Involvement activity is fed into FB Newsfeed, increasing visibility With Assessment . . .
  • Involvement Dashboards Live assessment of group joining. RAs or Advisors Ashley Wilson can make personal volunteering Recommendations
  • Students’ and groups’ efforts are 3. bundled in RSS feeds and presented as the “digital commons” (Think school specific friendfeed, filterable by major, res. hall, tag, #tag, etc.) Digital Commons
  • Students’ and groups’ efforts are 3. bundled in RSS feeds and presented as the “digital commons” (Think school specific friendfeed, filterable by major, res. hall, tag, #tag, etc.) Benefits Digital Commons 1. Builds communities, fosters connection. 2. Students can see what groups do. (If groups want them to.) 3. Great authentic content for admissions. 4. Surfaces all the great work, giving recognition to students.
  • Helping students 1. Find people like them 2. Join groups and create groups 3. Give to the community A Single Web Based Tool: And helping colleges 4. Track, assess, advise and support the process
