SocialMedia.ie Launches New Social Media Course for NUI Maynooth
We are delighted to partner with NUI Maynooth to design and deliver a 12 week social media module for the Year 3 Business and Management students. This module will be assessment based with a combination of both theory and practical. The lectures will enable students to learn about the growing and diverse world of social media through a mixture of theory and case study examples. The practical element of the module will see the students implementing the theory using social media tools (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Digital Video and Blogs) to demonstrate what they have learned during this exciting module. Lecturers Conor Lynch and Cian Corbett are really looking forward to working with the college and students on this exciting & innovative new course.
