Hi Bentley Students/Potential Project Group Member ~
I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with Bentley students on my new business. It’s a social enterprise so we are using best business practices to achieve a social and environmental mission. I think students will be able to learn a great deal, not only about social media and the power of the internet, but also about social enterprise and the power of conscious capitalism ~ with our eye on the triple-bottom-line: People, Planet and Profits (in that order!).
Here are a couple of ideas for the Web 2.0 project focus:
1. Design a membership platform where members can join in, have access to a calendar of workshops and events at Time Well Spent – perhaps even with the capability of signing up and making payment online. While I’m leaning toward using NING for this platform, are there other options that we should be considering? Development Crossing is a ning group I am a member of, as an example.
2. I’d like to come up with a mini web page to offer to others so they can embed it on their website. check out this link to Sprout. It’s something I saw quite a while ago. Upon returning to their site, I see they have something about Sprout Campaigns that sounds like it is in synch with the Web 2.0 course.
Any questions, post ’em here or email me.
p.s. At the risk of information overload, I thought I’d just put some sites that are on topic here:
