Topic: The real value of social media is in the genuine, authentic, word-of-mouth extension of a university's brand beyond its official "fan pages." Seeding and nurturing these online conversations, however, requires significant offline attention.
RedDot is Here!
The mission of project RedDot is to bring an attractive, user-friendly and consistent design to Longwood’s official web site, while making it easier for content owners to create, manage and edit web content without requiring technical knowledge of web design or HTML.
