So, I think I’m starting to find my groove with Snapchat. Definitely having a planned schedule for the week helps. I can also see how I can re-use items for future semesters (the jigsaw puzzle of content terms can stay the same). I’m wondering if having consistent days, like “Hello I’m a Consultant” Thursdays (where each Thursday I highlight different consultants) or “Fun Friday” where each Friday I have a game (jigsaw puzzle, word find) and Saturday I snap the solution will be useful, or put me in a rut.
You can swipe up on your snaps to see who has looked at them. Unfortunately, I have only a handful on average. I’m going through a lot of work for only 3 to look at it! So, consistent marketing it to the students may be important. For my own sake, posting at a specific time (e.g., 3 p.m. since students have said they don’t check it until the afternoon because they are working or seeing clients) might be a better idea than whenever the mood hits me. Also, creating teasers that involve the students, like the one below, and sending that out through the course announcements function is something else I might try.
Committed to making this work. Upping my game!
