It has been almost three years since Rachel Reuben posted her guide on the Use of Social Media in Higher Education. That was the first homegrown survey and results that were shared on this blog. In the social media landscape a lot has changed in the last three years. Facebook is almost twice as old now. There were no location services like Foursquare. And what is Groupon?
With all this being the case it’s time to step back and get an idea on how colleges and universities are using social media. Are they measuring the results? How do students fit into the equation? All these are questions that we all want to better understand.
If you work in a web services role within an institution please fill out the survey as completely as possible. All your answers are confidential and the results will be combined so individual institutions will not be recognized. We do ask for the name of your institution purely to identify duplicates; it will not be published publicly.
Please pass this around as the more institutions that we can get to take part in the survey the better results will be. The survey will be kept open for two weeks or until May 2nd. The survey is embedded below or you can get to it here.
