Community of The Social MEDia Course
Because we can solve problems by learning together.


Crowdsource a Challenge

We believe challenges related to the medical use of social media can be solved together. If you want to launch a Youtube channel for your practice or start a Twitter account for medical purposes, but do not know how, let's work it out together as a learning community.

This should serve as a database of useful, practical solutions in social media.


You can submit a challenge and rate the comments and potential solutions; or even give updates about your challenge.

blogging about the social media courseby angie.fearon; 2012-08-17 03:59:26

Hi fellow travelers,
I have been thinking about writing a blog about my experience of undertaking the social media course. however, a) I have failed the test x3, so feel a bit inadequate and b) am not really sure if anyone would find it interesting or helpful.
So - what would I like from the community -
your tips about how to pass the blogging course :-), and encouragement (or otherwise) about the blog. Maybe some thoughts about what would be good to include in the blogg.

Thanks for your thoughts,

angie fearon

Practical sessions in a university course focusing on social mediaby Dr. Bertalan Mesko; 2013-01-28 17:00:22

Ive been teaching medical students about using social media for years. These courses consisted of series of extended lectures, written exam and constant online communication with students discussing their questions on Facebook and a blog.

The challenge I face now it that I try to make more practical sessions (tasks they have to do online after each lecture), and Im wondering what these may be.

Studying onlineby pillango; 2013-10-29 22:28:49

My question / social media related problem is, how can you study efficiently on your computer without getting distracted by social media (facebook) or other websites?
For example, when I start studying the lectures pdf files I check facebook more often and listen to music on youtube, therefore it takes more time to finish.
