New Learning Times : Do Students Prefer Social Classroom Software? | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

by Meredith Powers


"The study measured...the quantity of interactions and perceived levels of learning. As such, students may be more engaged in the process of learning via social network software, but they may or may not experience better learning outcomes than the LMS users. Future research is needed to investigate the overall quality of interactions and to assess actual learning. Still, student satisfaction and engagement are especially important factors for distance learning; further study of the integration of social network software into online courses may greatly facilitate online instruction."

The LinkedIn Publishing platforms has been a bone of contention for many, especially regarding duplicate content. All the people I know have reposted their articles.


However, as @Optimum Business Support suggests in this article, you should not just copy and paste your content verbatim. And wait a few days before reposting from your blog.
