I found the course tremendously valuable. Obviously I learned new techniques to more fully utilize Google Analytics, but the course is much more than a practical “how-to” guide. The focus on KPIs and their connection to an institution’s goals and objectives was the most enlightening. This focus aided me in developing a strategic mindset with regards to the use of web analytics.
The Higher Ed Experts conference is a great way to learn from professional peers who face the same daily challenges that you do. I always learn a great deal from this conference.
The Web Writing in Higher Education course was incredibly helpful in improving my skills as a higher ed communications professional. The format allowed for varied learning styles through video, text and hands-on instruction. The assignments were challenging but so beneficial, and nearly every assignment I’m actually hoping to use word for word (well, as close as I can get to it) as we move forward with redesigning our website. I can’t say enough great things about this course. Oh, and make sure you read the entire textbook, cover to cover. It’s amazing.
I would definitely recommend the course. You will learn about a lot of tools to help you get organized for social media/web writing as well as learn best practices.
