Social Media University: How colleges have slowly adopted social media
I'm a big fan of visuals. Many times a visual can reinforce thoughts, facts, and information in dramatic ways that reach the reader much more effectively than just using text. After all "a picture is worth a thousand words"! My doctoral research focused upon the use of visuals to enhance blended and online courses. Visual literacy skills are critical in a world where media are used in multiple ways and surround us daily. As a result, I thought I would include this 'infographic' that demonstrates the rapid and increased adoption by higher ed in the use of social media. I think it will demonstrate more than words that these tools are a part of the present and future and ubiquitous.
