Understanding of why various social media platforms exist & their target audiences

In the rush to get online during COVID lockdown in 2020, we sought to use what tools were available to us at the time. This included social media.

Whilst it worked well in the short-term, there are pitfalls and concerns with using social media in online learning. This webinar will explore the best practices for using it going forward.

You’re invited to join Liz Meadows as she shares the history behind some of the most well-known social media platforms and tools, how they have been used in online learning and the pros and cons of using them
