What’s a YamJam ?

Yammer can be using in hundreds of ways to increase conversation and collaboration across a given network.  One of the most interesting examples is what’s called a “YamJam” .  A YamJam is simply a planned conversation based around predetermined topics at a planned time. 

This idea has unlimited possibilities that range from the classroom to the university network.   A YamJam might be used to brainstorm an idea in a course chapter or it could be used for community feedback on larger university issues like budget or planning.   If you are interested in planning a YamJam within your unit or classroom please send me a message at or call me at 252-328-9866.

Lastly, take a look at this Yammer blogpost about a successful YamJam by the  head of Transport Operations at Brighton & Hove City Council.  Here is the link.  —–>  YamJam Blog Post.
