I am new to community management. I come from a background in distance learning for higher education where I assisted faculty who were developing new courses (aka instructional design) and incorporating discussion and engagement online.
I am now managing 4 communities consisting of research panel members. Apples to oranges I know, but I’m hoping my basic skills will carry over. The communities have been in place for quite some time and members have been responding to survey requests, but now we are moving toward a platform that offers opportunity for engagement and conversation for the first time.
In particular, I’m looking for advice on how I can roll this out to members with a splash! Ok, actually, I have lots of questions. I’m excited to be joining this community!
