in list: Social Media

  • According to a new study from the Babson Survey Research Group, more than 80 percent of professors have at least one account with either Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Skype, LinkedIn, MySpace, Flickr, Slideshare, or Google Wave. Nearly 60 percent kept accounts with more than one, and a quarter used at least four. A majority, 52 percent, said they used at least one of them as a teaching tool.
  • The survey was a collaboration between Babson Survey Research Group, New Marketing Labs, and Pearson. The survey polled 939 professors from 2 and 4-year colleges and universities around the country. Most said they teach in undergraduate programs, and more than a third reported teaching online or blended courses.
  • The study found that social media use is highest for humanities and social sciences teachers, and that long-tenured professors don’t shy away from social media any more than their younger colleagues.
