If you are looking for training that can be completed remotely, the OhioERC still has spots available for its free online training module Social Media: The Records Management Challenge. This training delves into topics such as:
- Government use of social media – through both public and personal accounts
- Capture, management and disposition factors of records created on social media
- Citizen interaction with government through social media
This training is geared toward governments that have social media accounts as well as elected officials and public employees who may find themselves balancing a personal social media presence with their public roles. This is a great resource to have Human Resources bookmark and make available to newly hired staff or newly elected officials. It is especially important for department heads and those in elected offices to be aware of the issues brought up in the training.
