This course is offered online via the easy-to-use Zoom program.
The social internet is an ever-changing digital landscape. Social media platforms created ten years ago are constantly evolving and perform more and more functions every day. This class will explore the wide variety of offerings of three of the largest social media platforms—Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter— including some offerings you might not even know about! The course will also provide an overview of the pitfalls of these platforms, ways you can protect yourself and your data on the social internet, and how to troubleshoot typical user challenges. Though primarily lecture-based, each session will reserve time for student questions and queries to drive discussion.
Instructor Leslie Appleget has worked with arts and cultural organizations in both the United States and the United Kingdom for a decade, affording her many opportunities to explore the social internet on behalf of nonprofits.
