Event Info

Many individuals use Social Media platforms (Facebook, WhatsApp, Youtube, Linked-in etc.) on a daily basis to communicate on a number of issues, however there might only be a few who use it as a business intelligence tool for branding and growing a clientele or as a research and educational tool. Social Media has evolved exponentially into a powerful social engagement, business intelligence and educational tool that should be embraced by all in this information driven age.

Today, companies use social media for predictive data analytics whose findings can be used for business forecasting, improving business sales and retaining customers. Higher education institutions the world over are equally embracing social media as a research marketing tool that is able to drive user traffic to their web-portals,improve their visibility and rank as well as market their research products to a wider audience. Social media tools are useful for gathering, collating, accessing, managing, sharing and disseminating your work and research findings. The effective use of social media tools can also enable you to manage your online presence, develop your reputation, maximize your impact and build networks.

The Directorate for ICT Support (DICTS), Makerere University together with other stakeholders, has therefore organized an awareness training workshop dabbed "Social Media for Higher Education" aimed at enlightening users on the power of social media as a research and educational tool.

Your attendance and participation will be highly appreciated.
