First, there is a new post in the Convergence Analytics section of ClickZ called Convergence and Info-Literacy in 2014, have a look when you get a chance.
This is a short post – finally have a few minutes to relax (but just a few- ha!)
- Second, I have been non stop since Christmas, updating my Social Media for the Arts course at Rutgers University - logging over 80 hours of time in the last two weeks – but now, I’m done! The nature of this updating is so intensive that I find myself unable to write much outside of it while I’m doing it.
- Baruch College courses in Web Intelligence (Undergraduate and Graduate) are now built – I spent a good 30 hours on that material as well – and of course, since I teach my classes (hybrid) on Monday nights at the Vertical Campus, people are welcome to drop by if they let me know in advance.
- An FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology course) on Web E-Commerce and Email Analytics is being prepared for May 10th and 17th (both Saturdays).
And that’s not the end of it – stepping back and trying to look at what is ahead, this year does indeed look as if data and analytics capabilities are converging and I’m seeing it in not only the industry, but in my students as well.
2014 so far…
- Lots more Analytics improvements – and a few more courses, no doubt, from Google Analytics Academy. Lots of jobs that are hot now didn’t even exist in a meaningful way 5 years ago.
- I got a Pebble for Christmas - likely to play with it a bit more .
I imagine I’ll have a few posts out shortly – now that I can finally clear my head – ha!
