This course is recommended for organizations in Socialsuite version 4.0. We will be upgrading Socialsuite 3.0 organizations shortly to 4.0. This new version has new features to extend out Socialsuite’s capabilities and streamline exiting functions.
Getting Started with Socialsuite 3.0 will continue to exist for those familiar with the functions and features.
The following course is designed to help you understand the fundamental concepts of Socialsuite and how you measure the impact of your programs using Socialsuite.
The course, while not comprehensive, aims to work through the necessary steps to complete an evaluation of a program we have created for this course. By applying this simple case, you will be able to complete an evaluation using an email collection method to collect data from program participants.
