Thanks for introducing new tools to create and schedule content. I was using something different that was effective but inefficient. It was great to learn about what other orgs do and best practices. Reflecting on what I heard and saw, I am seeing that our org is on the right track, and the next steps are to target our audience better and create more content across all platforms. I look forward to my other courses and keep up the fantastic work in your teachings!

Managing all of your social media channels can often feel more like a headache than a task you look forward to. You don’t want to scratch your head over what to post on Instagram vs. Facebook vs. Pinterest vs. Twitter, and even worse, how to make time for it all. This course will demonstrate ways to effectively manage different social media spaces and optimize content and scheduling within your team to better your reach and success.
You’ll learn how to set up a process that works for you and how to seamlessly integrate a schedule for your posts, making social media something to look forward to.
With years of experience building websites, I am a self-starting innovator who is highly motivated to see projects through from start to finish. I specialize in multi-tiered technical and creative integrations for any type of media and have spent close to a decade customizing solutions for online video delivery. Paired with my extensive experience in communications and the entertainment industry, I have the unique ability to cultivate vision and big picture roadmaps while translating them down to technical deliverables. This includes finding a unique approach to every story or article; engaging and energizing companies to be a participatory player in the ever-changing media landscape; bringing together websites, social media, video technology, apps, and print materials; writing about a high peak or a sailing adventure; and just digging deep and breathing life into new projects. When I can, I put in time doing volunteer work. I've worked at orphanages in Kenya both doing direct work with the kids and creating videos for the organization to bring in more volunteers. I also have been known to volunteer in classrooms and preschools around VT. And I often help out at animal shelters. I received a bachelor of fine arts in Film Production and a minor in Creative Writing from Concordia University in Montreal. I am an avid writer in a variety of genres, including outdoor writing, fiction, brand marketing, and poetry. When I'm not writing or running a business, you can find me skiing powder, running, and reading about anything related to cyberspace. You can learn more about me and my company at www.firstturnmedia.com.

Several relevant articles will establish key concepts and ideas as a primer to the live event, and help you to identify questions and topics you want to explore further.
A brief quiz will reinforce what you've learned so far. Don't stress - it isn't pass/fail - it is just to help you remember and distill the concepts you read in the pre-work.
This is a 90-minute live captioned online training with opportunities to interact with the presenter and your peers. And if you can't make the live session, you'll be able to access a captioned recording.
