FINALLY UP & RUNNING – OFF TRACK – ANOTHER NEW DIRECTION

The ASAP TUMBLR has been up and running for the last 3 weeks. We have been able to post weekly on Career Exploration, Academic Support and Success Stories. There are 197 students that are receiving the weekly post. The site is ASAP-LAGCC.TUMBLR.COM

The Peer Advisor BLOG has stalled at this time. I have given it over to one of the Academy Coordinators to see if she would be able to oversee the BOLG. This BLOG would be a great connection for new students to receive information and ask questions to the Peer Advisors.

Unfortunately, we were not able to link up with the Business / Technology department on an advisement BLOG. I think that we need to re- introduce the idea in the future.
The new direction has to do with New Student Orientation. I may have the opportunity to present the Community 2.0 vision to the committee. We may be able to use the concept for pre-freshman.

  1. During the last Community 2.0 meeting, tumblr was one of the platforms I looked at and it seems very versatile and easy to use. I've even began considering it as a better option to blogger. Any particular features on tumblr that you feel/think are particularly helpful for connecting with students/across disciplines?

  2. Now that I am in Business & Technology perhaps I can help out.
