Promo Connect: Putting Content into Context
Recorded On: 10/11/2017
In today’s world you can find just about anything you want to know online. And while it can be great to be able to access so much content, the downside is just that—it is only content. Adult learning theories tell us that in order for content to be meaningful it has to be put into context. One of the best ways to put content into context is to engage with your industry peers on a relevant online platform. PPAI is excited to provide members with a new professional development platform in the promotional products industry community, called Promo Connect. Join Jennifer Crowfoot and Melissa Weber for this session on how to access Promo Connect and what best practices will help users get the most out of this online community.
