Social Media 101 Workshop Registration for AUB Students, Faculty and Staff

Social Media 101 is a workshop organized by Online Collaborative at AUB to help students learn the basic concepts and technical skills of social media.

Workshop details:
  • The workshop will take place during the period of nine weeks (on Tuesday) starting March 15 to May 10 between 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
  • The workshop will be given in a computer lab (OSB 211) and will include lectures, direct applications, videos, discussions and testimonials.
  • At the end of the workshop, an online final exam and/or project will be administered and certificates will be distributed to participants.
  • In order to obtain a certificate, participants must not miss more than one session (unless otherwise conflicting with exams)
  • Course fees: $50 or LL75,000. (Fees are just enough to cover costs of the workshop. AUBOC is not aiming to gain profit from the workshop. All guest speakers will be volunteers as well.)
