Becoming digital

So you are a BCMS student, and have stumbled upon the link to this site through your subject outline or in the first lecture?

As a future media and communications professional you are expected to acquire and demonstrate skills in establishing and maintaining a coherent and professionally presented online identity. While virtually all our students are on Facebook, we have discovered that many of you have not yet been exposed to blogging and the creation of an online identity that goes with the practice.

This site is intended as a very simple introduction to the first steps you are about to take towards creating a coherent online presence.

The tabs above contain quick guides to getting started with wordpress and twitter, good practices of an online presence, and staying out of (academic) trouble.

The useful links on the right will lead you to much more detailed guides to effective blogging and tweeting practice.

Happy blogging!
