Discussions You can expect to participate in at least one discussion assignment every week. These assignments are an opportunity for you to discuss social media topics with your classmates. Review the discussion prompts carefully and respond to all the questions and requirements outlined. You must cite any references, APA style, used to support your post. After posting your initial response, please review your classmates posts and respond to at least two different individuals. Your peer responses should reflect quality assessment and observation of the individual s post. Do not respond with short general statements or opinions. Each week your initial post is due on Wednesday and your peer responses are due by Sunday at 11:59 pm CT. All discussions, except for Week 8, are worth 20 points. Week 8 s reflection discussion is worth 10 points. Effective discussions require your participation and engagement, so it is critical that you contribute in a timely manner. Treat discussion boards as classroom conversations. If you do not post (say), anything within the allotted time, then nobody else can join your discussion. Due to this conversational nature of discussion boards, I do not accept late posts.

4 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 4 Blog For this class you will set up and maintain a blog over the eight weeks of the course. Blogs are great for getting your ideas into words and for gathering feedback on those ideas from others. Your blog should: 1. Introduce yourself as well as the product and/or service to the professional community you are looking to enter 2. Differentiate you from your competitors 3. Show you understand who your customer is today 4. Solve a problem for potential customers 5. Create a marketing platform for you to define your goals You will construct at least six separate blog posts on topics that incorporate the theme for each week; what you learned, how your brand is affected, as well as exploring steps you can take moving forward to grow your influence. There are many blog host options, but for this course, I recommend using either Blogger or WordPress. As you create each post, remember that you will be posting to a public forum and not a private diary. I expect professional discourse in all your posts. Once you have finalized your blog post for the week, you must post a direct link to it in that week s blog discussion. You do not need to include the full text from your blog in your discussion post. The first five blog posts are each worth 20 points, and are due by Sunday night at 11:59 pm CT, and the Week 8 post is worth 70 points and is due by Saturday night at 11:59 pm CT. More detail on the weekly blog topics and additional resources are available in the Content area of the course. As part of your blog, I recommend that you select at least five of your classmates blogs to read regularly. Include links to their blogs in the blogroll (list of links) on your blog. I recommend visiting them every time you visit your own blog. Reading and commenting on each other s blogs encourages community. I will also post a list of everybody's blogs on the course homepage. Dropbox Papers There will be three papers in this course: Social Media and the Mobile User, Your Personal Brand Strategy, and Crafting Your LinkedIn Profile. In each paper, you will show your critical thinking, problem solving, research, creativity, and advance scholarship. Your paper should be two pages in length and include both a title and reference page. Paper structure: Title page Introduction Body of paper (responding to assignment prompt) Conclusion Reference page (APA style) You must display college-level writing and follow the APA style guidelines. Your paper must be double spaced, free of grammatical mistakes, utilize appropriate language, and include relevant content. Each paper is worth 50 points and due to the appropriate Dropbox folder by Sundays at 11:59 pm CT. Do not copy, or otherwise use information from another source without citing your sources. That is a fundamental principle of academic writing. In other words, use APA style parenthetical citations to tell your reader where the information comes from. I consider any violation of this requirement as plagiarism and your grade will result in a zero for the assignment. Dropbox: Wikipedia Page Create your own Wikipedia page. You should focus on yourself and the services you plan to offer. Consider how these services relate to your chosen industry. You will not need to post the page to Wikipedia. Find a page of someone in your industry to use as an example and create your page in a way that differentiates you from your chosen person/organization but does touch on the same areas. In your own page, make sure to include a name and link to the person /organization s page you are using.

5 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 5 You have the option of making this with Word, PowerPoint, or another program as long as it matches what you want to share. This assignment is due to the appropriate Dropbox folder by Sunday in Week 6 at 11:59 pm CT. Dropbox: Recording a Podcast You will create a 5-minute podcast using Google Hangouts that summarizes what you have learned in the course to this point and how it relates to your personal brand. I encourage you to find your voice and make this podcast relevant to your strengths as you work through the course. The concept of finding your voice means finding a way to express your ideas in a way that is true to your goals and intent and resonates with others. A podcast is an opportunity to not only inform, but also use humor, stories, and entertainment to hone in on your specific interest areas. Create your podcast with this mindset and enjoy the process. I have included a number of links in the Content area to help you use Google Hangouts to create your podcast. This assignment is due to the appropriate Dropbox folder by Sunday in Week 7at 11:59 pm CT. Dropbox: Branding Storyboard and Video You will design and produce a video that introduces yourself and describes your brand to your target audience. Your viewer should learn what to expect from you as a follower on your social networks. The video should be between 2.5 to 3 minutes long. Have fun, show your energy and excitement, and make sure your message is clear, clever, and organized. There is information on shooting video and uploading to YouTube in the Content area of the course. Branding Storyboard It is important to plan the message and content of your video before you begin shooting. This is a chance for you to critically think and plan your production. In Week 3, you will create a storyboard that outlines dialogue, action, and any narration you would like to occur in the video. I do not expect you to be an artist, stick figures are acceptable. This is a chance for me to give you feedback before you submit your final video. This assignment is due by Sunday of Week 3 at 11:59 pm CT. Branding Video You should start work on the video as soon as you complete the storyboard. You may find it easier to try a few shorter test videos to work out any kinks and get familiar with your equipment and the production process before working on the final versions. You will upload your final video to your YouTube and then submit a link to the video by Sunday of Week 7 at 11:59 pm CT. Feel free to share your video on your blog. Dropbox: Viral Marketing Campaign Presentation You will design a presentation for your own viral marketing campaign. Using everything you have learned about viral marketing, social media marketing, and digital communication, develop an 8-10 slide presentation using your chosen social media tools or sites (Week 2). You do not need to develop a complete presentation, but make sure to summarize your ideas for creating a viral marketing campaign to promote your personal brand. The presentation should be professional, organized, eye catching (pictures, graphics, etc.), and highlight your personal brand. You must also present (narrate) your presentation. You can choose to insert (embed) your recorded audio in each slide or add your speaker notes in the notes area of each slide. Your slides should include relevant content and utilize images or graphics that support your message, as well as display creativity. Remember, if you use materials from any publications, website, or other media, you must appropriately use APA style formatting and citations. A title and reference slide must be included in your final presentation. The presentation is due to the appropriate Dropbox folder by Sunday at 11:59 pm CT of Week 7.

More and more companies have worked to develop mobile-optimized web sites that will allow for a robust user experience adaptable to almost every type of device.

Number of followers 2. How they are optimized from a mobile standpoint a. Ease-of-use b. Load time 3. Content similarities between the mobile and desktop sites 4.

14 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 14 Course Policies Student Conduct All Columbia College students, whether enrolled in a land-based or online course, are responsible for behaving in a manner consistent with Columbia College's Student Conduct Code and Acceptable Use Policy. Students violating these policies will be referred to the office of Student Affairs and/or the office of Academic Affairs for possible disciplinary action. The Student Code of Conduct and the Computer Use Policy for students can be found in the Columbia College Student Handbook. The Handbook is available online; you can also obtain a copy by calling the Student Affairs office (Campus Life) at The teacher maintains the right to manage a positive learning environment, and all students must adhere to the conventions of online etiquette. Plagiarism Your grade will be based in large part on the originality of your ideas and your written presentation of these ideas. Presenting the words, ideas, or expression of another in any form as your own is plagiarism. Students who fail to properly give credit for information contained in their written work (papers, journals, exams, etc.) are violating the intellectual property rights of the original author. For proper citation of the original authors, you should reference the appropriate publication manual for your degree program or course (APA, MLA, etc.). Violations are taken seriously in higher education and may result in a failing grade on the assignment, a grade of "F" for the course, or dismissal from the College. Collaboration conducted between students without prior permission from the instructor is considered plagiarism and will be treated as such. Spouses and roommates taking the same course should be particularly careful. All required papers may be submitted for textual similarity review to Turnitin.com for the detection of plagiarism. All submitted papers may be included in the Turnitin.com reference database for the purpose of detecting plagiarism. This service is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use posted on the Turnitin.com site. Non-Discrimination There will be no discrimination on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, ideology, political affiliation, veteran status, age, physical handicap, or marital status. Disability Services Students with documented disabilities who may need academic services for this course are required to register with the Coordinator for Disability Services at (573) Until the student has been cleared through the disability services office, accommodations do not have to be granted. If you are a student who has a documented disability, it is important for you to read the entire syllabus before enrolling in the course. The structure or the content of the course may make an accommodation not feasible. Online Participation You are expected to read the assigned texts and participate in the discussions and other course activities each week. Assignments should be posted by the due dates stated on the grading schedule in your syllabus. If an emergency arises that prevents you from participating in class, please let your instructor know as soon as possible. Attendance Policy Attendance for a week will be counted as having submitted a course assignment for which points have been earned during that week of the session or if the proctoring information has been submitted or the plagiarism quiz taken if there is no other assignment due that week. A class week is defined as

15 Columbia College Online Campus P a g e 15 the period of time between Monday and Sunday (except for Week 8, when the week and the course will end on Saturday at midnight). The course and system deadlines are all based on the Central Time Zone. Cougar All students are provided a CougarMail account when they enroll in classes at Columbia College. You are responsible for monitoring from that account for important messages from the College and from your instructor. You may forward your Cougar account to another account; however, the College cannot be held responsible for breaches in security or service interruptions with other providers. Students should use for private messages to the instructor and other students. The class discussions are for public messages so the class members can each see what others have to say about any given topic and respond. Late Assignment Policy An online class requires regular participation and a commitment to your instructor and your classmates to regularly engage in the reading, discussion and writing assignments. Although most of the online communication for this course is asynchronous, you must be able to commit to the schedule of work for the class for the next eight weeks. You must keep up with the schedule of reading and writing to successfully complete the class. I do not accept late discussion postings unless prior arrangements have been made. I will only accept your projects (other than discussions) late if you contact me within 4 days of the due date. If you do not to contact me within 4 days of the due date, I will not accept your assignment. If I do accept your late assignment, the following late penalties will apply: 1-2 Day late: 5% penalty 3-5 Days late: 15% penalty 6- Days late: 20% penalty During Week 8, your assignments must be turned by the due date, unless an Incomplete grade has been granted in advance. I will not accept late assignments in Week 8. Do: Contact me to let me know you will be late no later than 4 days past the due date. Don t: Contact me during the final week of class and ask to submit assignments that were due during the second week of class so you can pass. While I ll feel bad, the answer will be NO because that is unfair to classmates who followed the stated policy. Course Evaluation You will have the opportunity to evaluate the course near the end of the session. A link will be sent to your CougarMail that will allow you to access the evaluation. Be assured that the evaluations are anonymous and that your instructor will not be able to see them until after final grades are submitted. Additional Resources Orientation for New Students This course is offered online, using course management software provided by Desire2Learn and Columbia College.
