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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 252-328-9866.
