Users of Blackboard Collaborate
The mission of the Social Media Global Education Connection Project is “To provide leadership, guidance, facilitation and resources to students, educators, and administrators in educational organizations that will promote and enable competent usage of social media by the world’s citizens, workforces, educational institutions, and societies.”
The SMGEC project is sponsored by the Social Media Club, a non-profit trade association whose membership exceeds some 300 K members throughout 200 plus chapters spread across the globe. This project links the social media industry / professionals with the education industry / professionals to bring the best to both worlds.
Blackboard collaborate would be an ideal tool for coordinating activities spread around the world. This would include internal meetings, exchanges with higher education organizations and communication programs to a variety of education professionals.
