Post-Yoga Creativity, Vine, and Teaching

My post yoga day

This morning I wrote about my need for yoga and my tendency to not go if I get too busy. Today I practiced and it paid dividends. I came home to write a pop quiz for my MKTG 2350 students and devise a new assignment for them involving Vine and blogging.

It’s the 2nd week of class–many of my students are new to blogging or at least new to WordPress. They’ve posted videos, hyperlinked text, cataloged, tagged, and written posts; but none of this is really facile yet. Hence their extra credit assignment outlined below.

We wrote the assignment description collaboratively in class on our private class blog and posted it with an embedded Tweet of one of my Vine videos. Then we pitched it to our University MarComm department. Check back next Thursday on Twitter and Vine for the #M2350 hashtag.

What do you think? Does this sound educational and interesting?

2) You don’t.
