Engaging the 21st-Century Distance Learner

Wednesday, March 14 | 9:30AM–10:20AM | Room 550
Session Type: NC12
Engaging students and facilitating two-way communication beyond the classroom is one of today's common challenges. Please join us to learn about ConnectYard, the social media platform designed specifically for higher education that helps faculty, staff, administrators, and students communicate in their preferred mode. We will interactively demonstrate and address Q&A around how the ConnectYard platform enables Northeastern Online to leverage popular communication channels like Facebook, Twitter, text messaging, the LMS, and more to promote safe and secure two-way engagement and best practices.
