Week 14: From plan to action. #ec457

I’ve fleshed out the schedule for this week. The learning is in the doing, although I am asking you to go back to the Networked NonProfit to read from Chapter 8 to the end.  Also note that I am asking you for your Tweeting, Engaging, Getting Techie self-assessment memo.  With classes delayed two hours, you should be able to stay up late and get all your work done!

Dominic and I have been thinking about moving the New Sudanese Community Association to a blog like WordPress because they aren’t able to freely update their current website.  Since this is quite a big move, I wanted to give NSCA some information about WordPress.  I’ve created a GoogleDoc handout, and I want everyone to feel free to use it, improve it, or copy and tailor it for your specific needs.  I just threw it together tonight, so I’m sure I’m missing good information.  Here’s the link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1zsdY_FInCesv3TTFCvZ52EG9bU_jeiMBZCQbsXR1Yo4/edit

More Networked Nonprofit STUFF!

My continuing review of Networked Nonprofit. It’s zany and fun and stuff. Not really. I think most of us are busy with our nonprofits. STUFF
