How can social media monitoring assist your class study?

Normally, I like to keep my professional voice somewhat separate from my voice here on this blog, but I cannot resist promoting the latest effort by Radian6 (my employer) to help educators and students get hands-on learning with a social media monitoring tool. This morning, Radian6 announced a Higher Ed Trial Program where faculty members (on behalf of an undergraduate class) and graduate students may apply for use of the Radian6 platform for four weeks at no cost.

This is a great opportunity for those educators teaching a campaigns or research class in the Spring 2010 semester. Check out the details on the Radian6 PowerShift blog. Deadline to apply for Session 1 is 28 December.

    Lauren -
    This really is impressive. Wish I had seen it earlier. I’ve a few friends in academia who i think would have jumped on this.
