Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, January 2, 2013 9:28 AM

And, some of these tips are not just for students. They work well for professionals who are using online resources for career learning. For example, the following use of hashtags is something we've been encouraging in our Mojo. We're using the hashtag #ChangeMojo from January–March and we used #CampusMojo last quarter. (And it is still a useful hashtag to use for relevant resources.)


1. Collaborate on Projects Using Hashtags

A group of students can use Twitter for research on a particular topic and start their own hashtag to quickly and collaboratively save all their findings into one common stream. By adding the hashtag to each relevant tweet they find they will each individually be able to search for it and see the results collected by other members of the team or class, regardless of whether they are in the same location. A great homework assignment would be to ask students to research a particular topic on Twitter, marking relevant tweets with a hashtag in this way and then looking at the stream together and analysing their results in class the next day.

Samuel Kwon's curator insight, January 16, 2013 5:20 AM

Like every designer needs to know is that, the logo can be a very sensitive piece of the puzzle that makes up what you want to display for the company you design for. The size, the colors that comes together, the brand presentation, etc. A lot of things on the logo needs to be relfected over so the people needs to be interested not only the product but also needs to know what product or company that supports electronics, food/beverage, etc.

Teachers Easy Guide to Social Learning

Teachers Easy Guide to Social Learning | connyb | Scoop.it

" Learning would be exceedingly laborious, not to mention hazardous, if people had to rely solely on the effects of their own actions to inform them what to do. Fortunately, most human behaviour is learned observationally through modelling; from observing others one forms an idea of how new behaviours are performed, and on later occasions this coded information serves as a guide for action."

Free and not so free Photoshop web design templates. | connyb | Scoop.it
In this modern phase of business getting a perfect design for the website of your corporate house is really a big issue.

 

Using a template can often save you the hassle of trying to solve a design problem. Templates is where form takes serious precedence over function. A template may look beautiful, but it does little if anything to specifically address isues you have with your web customers/audience.

 

Often times templates cause more headaches than help complete a design project sooner or cheaper.

 

Spoken like a true web designer huh?
