NEW: The Social Media Revolution

Great new video illustrating the “why” of social media:

Additional resources:

  • Our two-part coverage of  Julia Whitty’s spring 2011 workshop on Blogging for Science:
  • Slideshare - as seen above – is an excellent option for putting your presentations on the Web as  compact, fast-loading Flash slideshows. Added bonus: Nobody can swipe your slides.
  • National Sea Grant Program Facebook page, including links to all Sea Grant program Facebook pages.
  • Sea Grant Week 2010 – Sea Grant communicators joined forces to liveblog the New Orleans Sea Grant Week for their peers who could not attend. Value added through presentations, photographs, etc.
  • Extending Extension – Jennifer Jahedkar of Texas A&M blogs about e-learning
  • http://blogs.extension.org - Just getting started, the eXtension Foundation‘s effort to help Extension faculty across the country start blogging. Potentially good hosting option if your institution doesn’t offer a blogging platform.
  • Electronic Papyrus – Extension communications faculty at Oregon State University blog about instructional communications.
  • ReadWriteWeb – One of the most popular information technology blogs, and among the best for those who are truly interested in the changing tech landscape.
