“We are very excited about our new partnership with Enterprise Hive and the positive impact it will have on our member community,” shares NMC CEO Larry Johnson
Dedicated to the exploration and use of new media, The New Media Consortium (NMC) has entered into a partnership with Enterprise Hive and is launching a new website to support its mission and goals. “The NMC Commons” is currently under development utilizing HiveSocial from Enterprise Hive. NMC will support its international community of experts in educational technology utilizing the software-as-a-service application.
From the practitioners who work with new technologies on college and university campuses every day; to the visionaries who are shaping the future of learning at think tanks, labs and research centers; to its staff and board of directors, advisory boards, and others helping the NMC conduct its cutting edge research, Enterprise Hive will enable online communities where members will gather.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Enterprise Hive and the positive impact it will have on our member community,” says NMC CEO Larry Johnson. “The NMC Commons platform will provide a way for NMCers to more seamlessly collaborate, share and explore new ideas, and disseminate information about what’s happening across their campuses. It is a great opportunity for our members to engage with each other around the subjects and content that are meaningful to them.”
Members will have the ability to create personal profiles. Members will also have the opportunity to post jobs, events and blogs. In addition to collaboration and communication, members will find a new and improved platform for the NMC Horizon Project wikis. With five to ten reports published each year, the new wiki is expected to provide considerable time-savings for the NMC staff.
“Enterprise Hive is pleased to support the NMC. We understand the value of enabling not-for-profit organizations to support public and private collaboration. Delighted that NMC selected HiveSocial, we look forward to serving the member community,” says Vicki Tambellini president and CEO of Enterprise Hive.
