About the same time, I was asked to work with the University of Newcastle in promoting its upcoming GradSchool 2012 e-Business Marketing Course. As way of introduction, it’s offering a free webinar so those in business can get an idea about what the course will offer.
The course itself covers areas such as internet marketing, social media, web analytics and other forms of developing and building web presence. Basically, it helps businesses and working professionals understand and embrace the ever-changing and multi-faceted digital world.
For mums in business, the real attraction will be the fact it’s run online via a “virtual classroom’’ learning platform called Blackboard and involves 1.5 hours each week. Participants’ computer becomes a classroom, allowing them to interact with the course convenor and fellow classmates.
Taking time out to go to a university is just not feasible for many us. Well, me, at least. The costs associated with increasing time at childcare for 15-month-old Holly are hard to manage. This makes learning in a bid to grow your business more achievable for WAHMs or anyone else constrained by location or time.
Here’s some more information about the course and webinar:
