#EMchat 31 was week one in a three week Tech Series. Tonight we talked about online notification and tracking for applicants and admits. Our conversation revolved around how institutions are (or aren't!) using online methods to notify students about application status, admission decisions, etc. @EMjennielle and @AlexMWilliams_ left @TimDunning and I in charge tonight because they were both busy--hope we didn't let you down! Tweet of the Night:
Tonight's TOTN goes to Erika Pepmeyer (@higherederika) for her tweet about the importance of personal follow up with students in addition to online notification:
Tweet of the Night Honorable Mention:
Our first TOTN Honorable Mention goes to Beth Jordan (@b3thatx) for her tweet about using a variety of communication methods to reach out to students:
Our last TOTN Honorable Mention goes to #EMchat's own Tim Dunning (@timdunning) who reminded us about an important consideration with online notification: bandwidth.
Thank you to everyone who joined us tonight! We look forward to continuing the Tech Series with you next week! Have a great weekend--and Happy Father's Day to all the Dads in the #EMchat family!
