We will be taking advantage of the Penn State Yammer network for several parts of the course. Using Yammer is very similar to using Facebook, so it should be familiar to most. From yammer.com:
Yammer is a simple, scalable solution that lets employees share and connect with coworkers in a private, secure enterprise social network. Collaborate in teams, see what your colleagues are working on, share ideas and get feedback, create and edit content, and receive updates from other enterprise applications – all in one place.
We want to see how a private social network might work to support the work of a course. One of the first accounts we need you to create is your Penn State Yammer username. Getting started with Yammer is simple:
- Go to http://yammer.com
- Click Sign Up
- Please use your real PSU userid as your email address
- Complete the registration and sign up process
- Look for an invitation to join the Disruptive Technologies Yammer group
