Time to Start Wrapping Up Things

It’s hard to believe, but there are only three weeks to go in the class!

This week we’ll finish up Part Five of your Semester Assignment. By the end of the week, you should post all of the required content for your owned media channels and make the final changes to your paid media campaign.

This week:

On Monday, you’ll have time to work with your team to finish up Step 1 of Part Five of your assignment.

Then, on Wednesday I’ll introduce Part Six of the Semester assignment.

On Friday, I will have a short meeting with each team to review the current state of your campaigns and answer any questions on how to best summarize your work for your final presentation.

Next week, your focus will be summarizing your work for the entire semester and developing your final presentation. I have a training session on Wednesday, Apr. 18, so we won’t have class on that day. However, you’ll have the entire class period on Monday and Friday to work with your group and discuss your final presentations with me.

Remember, the final presentations are the week of April 23-27!
