Week 1 Advanced Social Media
In the first class of the semester one of things that had importance is that we reviewed what we were going to be doing in the class. We will be getting different types of online certifications throughout the class including badges from Codecademy and an online certification from HubSpot. Being certified in these will mean that we have developed an understanding of making a website and different ways of marketing.
The class also voted on which certification we would like to be our third, Google Analytics or Content Marketing through HubSpot. The winner was Content Marketing through HubSpot. The class session overall was used to get a feel for what the students wanted to do and it accomplished that.
The badges for Codecademy Making a Website should be finished by February 16th and Hubspot should be finished in steps as it will be a longer process. The first step is due January 26th which includes the Intro, Fundamentals and Attracts. Codecademy Making a Website will take an approximate four hours. The first installment of HubSpot will take approximately a little over two and a half hours.
The first class has decided the direction of the class and I think that the students have established where it is going. This class will better the resumé of every student who takes advantage of the opportunities given to them in this class. The next couple weeks will show a lot as far as what will be covered and done in class, and the fact that Ike is putting us into groups for our projects could be a great advantage. Ike knows all of us and who would work best together, but it also gives us all more of a real world experience as we will not be able to pick our coworkers in the future.
