Today Clemson University unveiled its social media listening center, helping demonstrate the impact social media has made in the classroom. Teaching and learning are occurring in very different ways, and the professors and students at Clemson are embracing these changes and using social media to help them approach a number of new projects.
Students have the chance to explore research on a diverse range of topics, from the US election, to student athletics and the stock market. The project is the result of a great partnership between Dell, Salesforce Radian6 and Clemson. The team at Clemson was so inspired by the work Dell was doing with their social media command center, that they went to Dell headquarters to see first-hand what was possible. They returned from their trip full of great ideas and a plan to bring this technology into their classrooms.
Clemson’s hard work and great ideas have come together to give their students a state of the art classroom. Take a look at this video which highlights Clemson’s new social media listening center and some of their students’ innovative projects.
The future is looking bright for Clemson and their students. Their students and faculty have the chance to access technology in a way that will help them learn and tackle new research projects – and will give them important skills to use once they leave the classroom.
