  4. 4. Our Approach To Online Communication Has Not Changed Since 1994 <ul><ul><li>Largely consists of electronic versions of materials created to be shared in print </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Information often bundled in ways that limit direct access to specific answers and help </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Almost exclusively built on one-way communication with little or no engagement with the customer </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. The Way Our Customers Use Online Communication Has Changed <ul><ul><li>Online communication among the people it is our mission to  serve has changed drastically </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>User expects information when and where they want it. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>User expects communication fit for multiple devices (mobile, tablet, netbook, etc.) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>User expects communication that will compete for and keep their attention. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>User trusts sources that are open and value user knowledge and feedback. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>

  9. 9. Discussion Question #2 <ul><li>How have you added process to content to achieve transformational education? How could that process be achieved online, if at all? </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  10. 10. Online Communication Objectives <ul><li>1.
