We continue to look for ways to engage our audience in a conversation and e-Insights is a great testament to that
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 22, 2009
Drexel University Online was recognized by the Philadelphia Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America for its outstanding achievement in the category of blogging. The 41st annual awards dinner, held in December, showcased the work of public relations professionals across the Philadelphia region. Drexel Online was awarded the second place Ladle for its outstanding work on the blog, e-Insights. The blogging award, given annually, recognizes an organization for its use of a blog to create awareness of a cause, product or company.
E-Insights was launched in July 2008 to keep the Drexel Online community informed of current happenings in the online learning world. Today, e-Insights serves as a forum for students, alumni and community members to interact. Stories and articles are posted regularly, encouraging readers to respond and engage in a dialogue. Posts include stories of Drexel's online students and their experiences with online learning, faculty achievements, and relevant industry articles. The blog also features videos, podcasts, and interviews with business leaders. Via the blog, students can also communicate with Drexel Online on twitter and facebook.
"We continue to look for ways to engage our audience in a conversation and e-Insights is a great testament to that," said Michael Schwartzman, marketing director for Drexel University Online. "We are honored to have received the prestigious Ladle award this year. The entire team looks forward to building on the success of e-Insights in 2010 and beyond."
