WV State Univ. Debuts Unique New Web Presence
Our friend and fellow PR colleague, Todd Beane is "calling all West Virginians to Join the Conversation!" Todd is the communications marketing specialist for WV State University's Gus R. Douglass Land Grant Institute. He and his colleagues have launched a new Web site. It's a fine example of how an institution or educational entity can incorporate social media, like blogs and chat rooms into its Web presence. I visited the new gorgeous, feature-rich Web site. Check it out. It's worth a visit!
If you do visit, you are welcome to share your feedback here, in the form of a comment. Or you can send feedback directly to Todd at ToddBeane@WVStateU.edu. He shares the following news release with us:
West Virginia State University Gus R. Douglass Institute’s (GRDI) new and completely redesigned web site at http://grdi.wvstateu.edu is now LIVE. Once online you can make posts to the GRDI blog or even join online chats taking place with GRDI staff and administrators. We welcome you to bring your own personal insight and experiences to the table.
We have podcasts available to share with you on current topics from our Extension programs. And if audio is just not enough, you can also click on the Extension Matters logo and watch the monthly television show on live streaming video.
Visitors can virtually step inside our programs and learn about the three divisions that make up the Douglass Institute: WVSU Extension; the Agricultural and Environmental Research Station (AERS); and the Center for the Advancement of Science, Technology, and Engineering (CASTEM). Also visit the Calendar of Events and Upcoming Events to see what activities are happening.
Visit the website frequently and often to join the conversation. While you’re there check out Extension Matters podcasts, Extension Matters Magazine, or watch Extension Matters the television show right here on our Web site!
