Social Media University, Global (SMUG) is built on the distance-learning paradigm. And unlike traditional universities with on-line programs, we don’t have a requirement that some of the credits be taken on campus in a group setting.
Frankly, we don’t have room for all y’all. (I understand that’s the plural for the singular Texas “y’all.”)
Don’t get me wrong, we’d love to have you visit… one at a time. While you’re here in Austin, Minn. you can also see the world-famous SPAM museum. People have been known to come from as far as Hawaii and Guam to visit the birthplace of the canned meat that saved Western civilization during WW II.
So if they’ll travel that far for SPAM, maybe you’d want to do it for SMUG, right?
If not, and if you’d like to organize a group to have SMUG’s Extension Service bring an intensive session of classes to your community or company, let’s talk. Face-to-face dialogue is still the most effective way to learn.
We can do a Blogging Bootcamp. A Facebook Forum. A Wiki Workshop. A Twitter Tutorial. A Podcasting Program. Or we could tie it all together into a Social Media Summit.
Then you can continue your SMUG education through our on-line courses.
The map above, which is from my Facebook Cities I’ve Visited application, is useful in three respects:
- If you see a pin on the map for your city, I’ve been there before. Not for SMUG classes, but I know how to get there. I’d be glad to visit again.
- If you don’t see a pin for your city (or if your continent isn’t even shown!), it would be a new adventure for me. That would be fun, too.
- All blog posts should have a graphic or video of some kind to make them more interesting. Having the map accomplished that for this post.
