GREAT series of names for engagement patterns:

bystanders, collectors, viewers, solvers, all-rounders

 

SOME OTHER IDEAS: what about the way-finders - those who help create signposts for others to follow as learners navigate the course? or the web-makers - assisters/facilitators who help craft communities among learners?

How to Use Google Plus for Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

How to Use Google Plus for Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC] | Education Startups | Scoop.it

Neil Patel: "Whether you like or hate Google Plus, you have no choice but to leverage it. Why? Because Google owns it!

 

As the most popular site in the world, Google can really help boost your revenue. Having the top rankings can mean the difference between being in business and being out of business".

You know... I REALLY have a hard time feeling friendly toward Google.  Or YouTube, for that matter.  They're both arrogant as the day is long.  I mean, where else would any sane person do business with somebody where you couldn't even talk directly to a manger...let alone the 'owner'.

 

They get all pissy and and toss people off of their platforms with virtually zero recourse at all while at the same time giving the government any and all information they want while ALSO taking our information and using it either (a) for their own purposes and/or (b) against us.

 

That's good service?

 

I recall hearing that Google+ is changing into another animal now that the original founder has departed.  That's the way these guys do it.  They're digital 'pushers'.... get you hooked and then raise the price.

Stephen Dale I've been following Dion Hinchcliffe for many years as well. You're fortunate to have met him in London. You bring up a very good point about monitoring our every move. As you say, there is a price we will pay one way or another for privacy and time will tell how this will all shake out in the end. I'd love to connect with you again, it's been a while. As you can see I launched Curatti and we've been very well received. Hope things are going well with you, let's catch up soon.

Sound good Jan. I have been following Curatti since you launched - it's one of my top sources for news/content. Think we should arrange a Skype call sometime - unless you plan to visit London, in which case lunch is on me!

Agarwal: "You can’t just take the top people from the class and connect them with employers. There’s a lot more to it." Glad he's realizing that higher ed Career Center counselors do more than just connect companies up with students.  There's a lot of preparation that takes place before a job interview, and career counselors at major universities know this better than anyone.

You can write great content for Google or Social. But I am not really sure it is possible to do Google and Social well.

 

Google killed SEO and now it understands words so you can just write about any old thing and it will figure out you mean “entrepreneur marketing”, but a couple of minutes on the search engine will show you these kinds of results for your industry!

Alison Courses's curator insight, May 16, 2014 5:51 AM

Stan Christensen is a partner at Arbor Advisors, an investment banking firm where he negotiates on behalf of mid-market technology companies. He has nearly twenty years of experience in both transactional and operations roles and has worked on hundreds of transactions. In this free online course he advises doing as much informational interviewing as you can to ensure you pick a career path that you will enjoy and be a good fit for your interests. He says that when you are planning a career not to be overly concerned with a linear path, if you are savvy and wilful you can work your way into most careers. He outlines a few of the erroneous career assumptions that will help you avoid picking the wrong job. You will learn how a career/life balance is important and how a career where you are constantly overworking is unhealthy. Stan Christensen also explains the art of negotiation and relationship management and how to handle salary and job negotiations. He talks about how men and women do indeed negotiate for compensation differently. Finally, he discusses how the negotiations conducted when leaving a job are as critical as when starting one. This course will be of interest to business professionals, students and, indeed, anyone looking for advice on planning their career path.
