We have exciting things in the works for Spring 2012 Commencement. Twitter, Facebook, Ustream, Flickr. We’re doing it big!
Last year, we streamed the spring ceremony live over the internet for the first time with great response and international viewership. We’ve also added audience participation to the mix, encouraging our graduates and guests to live tweet with us using the #UALRgrad hashtag and share their photos from the event by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A page has been designed that aggregates all of these tools, including Facebook commenting, into one location to display all of the different ways that the live audience can interact with us and the audience online.
With more people using smartphone technology, we fully expect a crowdsourced commencement like never before!
