Tis the season for #clarkclass

Screen Shot of the class blog
If you're interested, or bored and don't have anything else to do, you can follow the progress of "clarkclass 4.0" actually, twitter for media, on the new class blog, "clarkclassUCO.blogspot.com"--many of the assignments, virtual textbook of many links, discussions of politics, news, marketing, social impacts, etc., of the revolutionary social media tool--including comments of our 10 professional speakers--several of them UCO alums. Or you can follow it on twitter of course, #clarkclass. Students are required to tweet every day, in addition to many other assignments and projects.
The class meets this week, and then the week of Jan 5, starting at 9:30 and going to about 2. It has 24 students from many different majors. This was the first class of its kind in Oklahoma, I'm proud to say, as we reacted to the advice of our professional media advisory board two years ago. It's always a learning experience. You'll be astounded at the way twitter has grown, how its used in thousands of ways, at its influence, and at new ideas.
