Using Social Media to Enhance Students' Learning Experiences
Abstract: Quality Approaches in Higher Education Vol. 3 (1) Feb 2012 article by James A. Griesemer. This article focuses on continuing efforts using social media to enhance undergraduate business students’ learning experiences. My college makes an online course management system (CMS) and training available to instructors, but leaves its use to the instructor for traditional courses. I use the CMS’s features such as bulletin boards, wikis,and online meetings and also incorporate other tools like blogs, podcasts, really simple syndication (RSS), and Twitter. Although incorporating social media into a course requires considerable time and effort, the results to date have exceeded expectations.
