Yammer Time! – Creating Collaboration, Conversation and Culture

Yammer is a private microblogging platform that has been described as a cross between Facebook and Twitter. ECU is piloting this platform during the Fall 2010 semester. The pilot consists of many different groups around campus including the College of Business, New Faculty Orientation group, College of Nursing and the Instructional Technology Consultants, just to name a few.

During the pilot we will be looking at how Yammer changed the culture at ECU. Does it facilitate collaboration? Is Yammer an appropriate platform for facilitating communication and has it change the culture in which ECU communicates?

During this presentation you will learn what Yammer is, how it works and the lessons learned during the Fall 2010 pilot.
