Hello! My name is Andrea. I enjoy writing and in my spare time I am an avid photographer and artist. I love to spend time with my husband who is my best friend.
"I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20

You may have heard or read the word "Yammer" a lot lately and aren't quite sure what to think of it. Well, take a deep breath because this post will hopefully help answer all those questions!
As you probably know by now, Microsoft Office 365 is available to download for free for all online and residential students! Along with this great opportunity are several tools that you may not have known about, including Yammer. Yammer is a way for people in the same business or institution to communicate with each other and keep connected easily. Think of it as a social media platform just for Liberty students and staff. You can follow people you know, join groups in your subject area, and get connected with online students from around the world!
Just like the Discussion Boards in Blackboard, you can share your thoughts and comment on each other's posts. But Yammer goes way beyond in that you can tag people in your comments, reply to specific posts easily, upload photos, and have your own personal profile page where you can add your interests and where you live to more easily connect with online students near you!
Some of the groups that Online Communities moderates are "Introduce Yourself,' "Daily Encouragement," "Study Tips," "Discover Your Campus," "Prayer Requests," "Just for Fun Polls" and more!! Go online today and log in to your account at www.yammer.com/liberty.edu. I look forward to seeing you there!
