It costs just $25, and you'll learn a whole range of things, from how to use hashtags to how to integrate your social media profiles to more effectively harness the internet to further your research goals. (More info on topics at the link.)
The course runs from Sept 18-Oct 8. It's largely self-paced, with regular weekly check-ins with the instructors and your classmates, so that you can help one another succeed in making the most out of Twitter. Each week gets more in depth, but you can pop in and out to get what you need.
Please share this widely -- although this is being run through #SciFund (which I joined way back when for help with my successful crowdfunding campaign), we're not just targeting scientists. We'd love to have you social science and digital humanities folks, as skills in social media are crazy important for academic and alt-ac jobs these days. Grad students are more than welcome, and even undergrads could benefit.
