So my new social media courses just came out and they are all available through the Endeavor system for staff. They are limited in seats so I would sign up early if you want to attend and they all cost a big fat zero (except you’ll get abused by my bad jokes and rabbit hole tangents).
Come join me in the social media fun. If you haven’t signed up through Endeavor, (go to Learning in the top nav and then to Catalogs or just type in a keyword like Facebook into search. They should come up.)
