15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic

15 Tips For Facilitating Online Discussion | Edudemic | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Facilitating discussions between students is one of those things that is infinitely easier when you’re teaching in a physical classroom rather than online. When the students are all in one room, discussions happen more naturally. Facilitating the same type of productive, useful discussion when teaching online is more of a challenge.

Under the Radar: Keeping Ads from Ruining a Great Infographic...

Under the Radar: Keeping Ads from Ruining a Great Infographic... | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

There’s no mystery here: companies want to sell things. Increasingly, they’re turning to infographics to do it. But overt advertising undermines everything infographics do best. Instead of informing and delighting the viewer with valuable data portrayed with graphical verve, ads cheapen and annoy. More often than not, they land the project deep in the Internet’s vast wasteland of unshared content.

 

Infographics aren’t just ads dressed up in new shoes, they’re something else: a refreshing, informative, fun, and shareable tool for communication that we can actually enjoy consuming. Also, when done right, infographics can still help bolster a company or product’s public image.

Here are some oh so subtly advertorial infographics that show you how to get the balance right...

Aurélia-Claire Jaeger's curator insight, March 21, 2013 12:52 PM

Il n'y a aucun mystère: les entreprises veulent vendre. De plus en plus, elles se tournent vers l'infographie pour le faire. 
Mais l'intention publicitaire trop clairement affichée couplée avec une réalisation à l'économie nuit souvent à ce que l'infographie peut faire de mieux. Au lieu d'informer et de ravir le "spectateur" avec des données précieuses dépeintes avec brio, de nombreuses publications ennuyeuses ou banales vont simplement rejoindre la vaste friche de contenus non partagés sur internet.

Nous sommes inondés de publicité tous les jours, partout où nous regardons. Les annonces sont si répandues qu'elles ont perdu beaucoup de leur pouvoir. Les Infographies ne sont pas simplement des publicités habillées de nouveaux costumes, elles sont quelque chose d'autre: un outil informatif, rafraîchissant, amusant et partageable. 
Lorsqu'elles sont bien faites, les infographies peuvent encore contribuer à renforcer une image ou un produit. Voici quelques exemples qui vous montrent comment obtenir le bon équilibre.

G+ is catching up big time for many reasons.  Among these reasons is the Hangout integration.  

 

We just facilitated a remote 1.5 day leadership development session with Hangouts and it was fantastic.  

 

Google is sticking to their strategy and their value is starting to win people over.  I was never a fan and, through valuable features, I am changing my perspective on the suite of offerings.

 

This is a relevant infographic.

6 Illuminating Big Data Infographics

6 Illuminating Big Data Infographics | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Is Big Data still a big mystery to you? 

In recent years, the volume of information coming into companies has exploded, so that many IT organizations are dealing with extremely large sets of data. 

IT leaders are rethinking many aspects of how they manage and deliver information, from investments in infrastructure and analytics tools to new policies for organizing and accessing data so they can deliver more of it, faster. They are concerned that if they don't have the right tools and architectures to deal with all that information, then big data can be a big problem. Check out these infographics on Big Data to see the impact...

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...
