Meetups and Online Students: Online Doesn’t Mean Alone – is a resource for helping students start, find, and/or use social media like Meetup to enhance their educational experiences. The current trend, moving higher education from the physical campus to the virtual, online campus, creates a number of new challenges. Classwork from a computer means that students are isolated, class sizes are often very large and therefore, struggling students may go unnoticed. But for every problem, there is a solution, and that is where social media comes into play; creating and engaging social interactions based upon common interests and common need.
