Presence of Social media is growing vigorously. But still social media is considered to be the deteriorating agent in academics by some people. Instead of fighting a losing battle, as social media is here to stay, the problem of web usage can be turned into an opportunity for the good.
Platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter are used by almost everyone. Social media is about collaborating, networking, sharing and generating knowledge and content, and all of these features are of great value in the context of higher education.
Social media plays an important role in every student’s life. It is easier and convenient to access information, provide information and communicate via social media. Teachers and students are connected to each other and can make good use of these platforms for the working of their education.
Thus keeping in mind the current situation, a page called Smart Media was started to assist the students to make good use of New Media. This page helps one to use media properly and effectively. The positive and negative impact of media is elucidated through PowerPoints and videos. Latest news and developments in the field of media is made known. The materials uploaded can be used in animating the media club members.
