Communications now beyond email4

Communications - Now Beyond Email

  • Before we look at the many ways we can now communicate, we need to determine what we are communicating.

Communications - Now Beyond Email

Some basic questions

  • Are you looking for actions or providing information?

  • What are the expectations of the receiver?

  • Are they using that system and expecting your message?


Communications now beyond email8

Communications - Now Beyond Email

  • My suggestion……use layering. There is nothing wrong with using several systems to “announce” the same message.

  • Even if the audience reads it several times from the various systems, you have increased your percentage of success.


Communications now beyond email9

Communications - Now Beyond Email

  • Space out the announcement over several days with a different system every day.

  • Use your systems to promote each other

Things to remember……….

I constantly forget that just because they can use an I phone doesn’t mean that they have any idea of how to work an information system.

(Example – eLion.)


Communications now beyond email11

  • Text goes here.


Communications now beyond email12

Communications - Now Beyond Email

  • Things to remember………

    • How many have access to the system?

    • How many people even know that xxx system actually exists?


Communications now beyond email13

Communications - Now Beyond Email

  • Things to remember….

    • At what point do people stop adding programs and say this is where I’m at….you need to reach out to me or they just ignore you.

    • Are you trying to connect or provide information?


Communications now beyond email14

Communications - Now Beyond Email

So what are some of the systems out there?

  • Email

    • The old man’s communications tool. Capable of sending a large amount of information and data to a specific user.

    • Able to take the user to pre determined links, keeping the email smaller and increasing the amount of information.

    • Links also limit the number of users getting lost


Communications now beyond email15

Communications - Now Beyond Email

  • Text goes here.

Communications - Now Beyond Email

  • Facebook

    • Create a name that will be meaningful

    • Still the largest and most used

    • Group vs. page or “Like vs. Friend”

    • You can do both

    • A huge tip-off that a Group was slapped together and won’t provide much value to members….. Spelling mistakes and grammatical errors.

  • Twitter

    • Many schools are using it as an effective way to broaden participation in lecture.

    • Classroom shyness is like a black hole: Once silence takes over, it never lets go.

    • Language on Twitter is unique vs. other systems. Very difficult to mix
