If a group of 20 senior high school students can get their heads around social media marketing in the space of a couple of weeks, contribute to a marketing strategy, and help slash an annual marketing budget by over 70 percent whilst delivering improved results, just think what you could do if you let your people loose to explore their own creativity!"

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’

Web Platform Gives Students an Alternative to the ‘Wall of Text’ | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"It’s difficult to keep students engaged — and awake — when assigning them readings from long and often dull textbooks. Two researchers wanted to change that.

The idea is that professors can use zyBooks instead of traditional textbooks in order to help students engage with the material and perform better."
