Why Colleges Need Their Own Mobile Apps

Why Colleges Need Their Own Mobile Apps | Basket B | Scoop.it
act as a portal for all kinds of information and student services, with students signing into it the way they would on the college website, but with a different kind of experience. It fits much more with the way people use mobile devices to keep on their work and social lives, with more immediate information and the ability to deal with pressing matters on the go.

"It's a dashboard type of experience," Hopkinson said. "It tells you about your classes, any assignments, outstanding parking tickets and about events like upcoming basketball games."

It's a different kind of tool than what schools may be used to, but it's what schools need to keep students involved and engaged. The right app can play a part in helping attract and retain students. It can even turn around possible crises about registering for classes and maintaining enough credits. That's an aspect that often catches the attention of administrators, Hopkinson said, convincing them that they need to get an app or revamp their current version.

A View From the Front Seat on an Ithaca Dragon Boat

A View From the Front Seat on an Ithaca Dragon Boat | Basket B | Scoop.it
On a recent, thunderstorm-touched early evening, a group of about twenty individuals gathered by the Cass Park docks. We (I was eagerly welcomed after sheepishly introducing myself) fit ourselves into one of two long boats decorated with bright dragon motifs. Most sat two abreast: men and women of variable age but with a general level of apparent athleticism that exceeded my own by some good measure. We were carrying out an ancient Chinese ritual—or some modern-day approximation thereof.

Wow, I have not downloaded their guide yet, but check this out:


Office workers are not compensating for this sedentary life once they are away from the office, the research suggests 47% do less than an hour of exercise a week.


Again work appears to be part of the problem. Almost a quarter (24%) surveyed can't fit any exercise into their working day and say it's too late by the time they get home to do it.


As a result, 52% are worried about their weight, only 31% are the right weight for their height, 30% say they have worrying stress levels and 53% fear for their health.

How People Read Online [Infographic]

How People Read Online [Infographic] | Basket B | Scoop.it
Now that reading online involves a bevy of social actions, from sharing to commenting across a plethora of devices, how many of your site’s readers will make it past the first paragraph?.

Recently Slate's technology columnist investigated this issue further in his article You Won’t Finish This Article. Using data from Chartbeat, he found that most readers don’t engage with the article, and if they do, they are inclined to do so before scrolling half-way down the page. 

 

To help us better understand the risks and opportunities about online readership, and to help you, dear reader, get to bottom of this article faster, we present you with an infographic that summarizes it all.

SEO Demystified: SEO Doesn’t Confuse People – People Confuse People | Basket B | Scoop.it

The one constant that you can count on in SEO is change – new rules, new restrictions, new algorithms, new devices, new penalties, new best practices...  These changes don’t go unnoticed by the SEO community – they result in blogs. Lots and lots of blogs. Maybe too many blogs?

Despite all of the available information, I talk to business owners everyday that don’t understand SEO. They are getting multiple calls and emails every week, but don’t act because they are confused by all of the information. “What does it all mean...

Did Color Run spread the love to its Alaska charity? | Basket B | Scoop.it
Color Me Bad? Some in Alaska think the Color Run donated all the money it raised -- some half-million or more dollars -- to Alaska Boys & Girls Club. But the charity will go home with only $5,000-$10,000. Here's why.
Ray Weaver's insight:

This is worth a read by anyone who is interested in 5k runs; Especially if you are under the impression that all the monies raised go to a non-profit organization. This is a great eye-opener! Keep it local!
