Seelio Now Available to All Students at The University of Toledo

We’re excited to announce that The University of Toledo (UT) has launched Seelio campus-wide!

Last year, the University of Toledo partnered with Seelio to bring its technology and services to the Jesup Scott Honors College and College of Communication and the Arts for faculty members to incorporate portfolios into their classrooms and for students to have a place to document their experiential learning. Deans, students, and faculty members embraced it, leading to this month’s enterprise agreement. See some of their feedback along the way:

As an enterprise campus with Seelio, The University of Toledo gains access to data visualization tools, learning management and student information system integrations, a dedicated UT community on Seelio, as well as dedicated service support for portfolio implementation across all colleges.

Now, every student at The University of Toledo can access special community features and faculty across colleges can work with Seelio’s Educational Service Team to integrate Seelio into their courses. UT students and faculty can get started by visiting utoledo.seelio.com.

Seelio Ed Tips

Tips from an Educator on How (and Why) to Use Social Media With Students

Understandably, using social media with students can feel a little overwhelming, but could it ultimately improve student engagement and letter grades? In this interview we talk to an educator who is embracing social media in classes to tackle some of the big questions like why? what if it goes wrong? what good will it do? and where do i start? — and proving that by taking them on, there can be great benefits for both faculty members and students.

Our guest, Nick Bowman, an Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at West Virginia University isn’t new the idea of using social media with students in the classroom. With a Ph.D. in communication from Michigan State University and over a decade of teaching experience, social media and technology in the classroom have been core elements of his teaching philosophy. He regularly has great advice to share, including an upcoming panel on the social classroom at SXSWedu, and he catalogues many examples of how he is using social media with students in his portfolio on Seelio. Read on (or bookmark this treasure trove of info) to get practical advice and tips for a social classroom.
