New Media Communications Course @ SMU

It was exciting conducting a second round of a two-day program on new media communications for colleagues in Singapore’s public service. On Day 1, participants were brought through some trends and developments of Singapore’s online space, and agencies such as the Health Promotion Board, the National Heritage Board (pics below are of Walter in action), and the Ministry of Education shared case studies, followed by a sharing on Wikipedia.

Day 2 saw many of the participants making their maiden foray into Web 2.0, creating their very first blog posts, contributing their first pictures onto Flickr, and uploading their first YouTube video. Ivan from the National Library Board brought the participants through how to create a podcast. Here are some pics.

The participants came from diverse walks of Singapore’s public service, such as Temasek Polytechnic, MINDEF, the Central Provident Board, the Energy Market Authority, and Tan Tock Seng Hospital, just to name a few. Here is a video of the class in session, taken from Day 1. If you were part of this class, please send me your blog URL. 🙂

    Hah is that Walter?! Always nice to know SMU is providing a venue for these events! Next time ask for the seminar rooms, I think they seat better.

    What kind of topics were discussed?

    Hi there, yep, that’s Walter. SMU is “providing” a venue for these events–for a pretty penny. Universities are profit-generating machines too! Good to know that Michael Netzley is your prof.
