Tuesday 1st November 4pm, OUCS
Technology enthusiasts have been very excited about the application of social networking platforms and tools in Higher Education. For the most part this has been hype (remember Google Wave?). Underneath the excessive breathless excitement, though, there is a valuable nugget that is worthy of investment. Michael Korcuska from LinkedIn will speak about why LinkedIn is the most important social network for higher education and how academics, students and the university as a whole can make the most of LinkedIn.
This session will provide an overview of how LinkedIn can be used by staff, students and researchers to improve your online networking and make the most of your contacts. If you thought LinkedIn was only for publishing your CV think again.
