There are several ways that new media can improve Baruch college. Some of the way are already in use such as facebook group pages that help get students in touch with each other. Having twitter lists for classes would also be a great way to communicate with students. With tweets concerning each class, people would interact faster and get the help they need. Sometimes learning has to be done on the go and with the use of new media such as twitter or facebook people can share their knowledge and expand the learning ways. I feel that by having a discussion will leave a bigger impact on a student’s understanding of a class topic than by reading about it in the book.
There should also be blogs or twitters about Baruch. Even though our school already has a twitter page students still lack the news that surround the campus such as the film shootings or the escalator status’. Wikis’ can also be useful to learn about different clubs or courses. There’s no better way to advertise one’s club then online where everyone has the time and access to the information. Facebook can benefit the college by having a suggestions page where students can leave their suggestions and have others thumb up on the posts. This will run the ideas through social sites and spark them to life when those suggestions are implemented.
