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.



Challenges

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



blogging about the social media course


by 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

Dear Angie!

I've been writing a medical blog since 2007. In my experience, the only way to find out whether the content you would produce is of interest for people is starting a blog and working on that actively with commitment and consistency.

There are some potential limitations (as described in the prezi about blogging) though, make sure you only post content that could be seen even by 1 million people or your employers.

Otherwise, it can be fun and you meet new people while learning an awfully LOT about your field of interest.

Crowdsourcing has already come to healthcare in the form of Medstarter. They are already involved in several ideas which need to be translated into reality. National Orphan Disease Program http://tinyurl.com/8qalpfw

Hi Angie
I think a lot of us will be interested on your experience while taking the course. Do include your thoughts and feelings as you started and progressed. Also, why do you think you failed and how do you think you could pass? Remember to link back to this site and keep us updated on your progress.
