Social Media in Higher Education Services Training Session 1

  1. 1. Social Media Training Social Strategy and YOU: Curation as Content Strategy in Higher Education Services
  2. 2. What makes higher education services different? Service delivery IS brand I.D. Engagement is NOT requisite Availability and Openness is key Mediums are more numerous Messages value is imperative Curation has max efficiency
  3. 3. What is curation? In the last 30 years mankind has produced more information than in the previous 5,000. Print, film, magnetic, and optical storage media produced about five exabytes of new information - in 2002 alone. Five exabytes of information is equivalent in size to the information contained in 37,000 new libraries the size of the Library of Congress book collections.  Those we serve rely on us to help them sort through this massive river of constantly flowing information. Curation is one of the many services we provide.
