CCS110 - Great Expectations - Students Today, Awesome Employees Tomorrow

A session at Lotusphere 2012

Tuesday 17th January, 2012

1:30pm to 2:30pm (EST)

For today's students, information technology (IT) plays an integral role in their everyday lives. They actively use many different technologies for their studies, work, and recreation. This aim of this presentation is to explore the use of Social business from the perspective of a student and show how Social Business can be used to increase the engagement with these students. The presentation will look at how IBM Connections and Portal can supplement tools such as Facebook and Twitter to provide an exceptional Virtual University experience for all Students and members of staff.

We will also show how the student aspirations are the same on a Global basis. Stephen will explain what is being asked for by Students in South Africa and Chetan in the Middle East / Asia Pacific.
