New Future Guide Purpose:  Private research, learning and general information website. New Future Guide is published in the open access internet for ease of use as an “Online Open Learning” classroom model, and is linked-to public offerings on the worldwide web.

Many schools and organizations provide student and teacher resources including counseling, course syllabus, lesson plans, video presentations, and textbooks. The range of offerings extends from K12 through Graduate level. Page banners and links lead to publicly offered subjects and research references in support of independent learning, and do not indicate approval, accuracy or endorsement of the contents.

New Future Guide provides the ability to compare and evaluate differences between online open learning and traditional on-campus academic programs. Changes in technology enhance learning and sharing ideas and complete concepts between professionals and practitioners in an open environment.

Road-Map: Lifelong learning is pursued to qualify for initial job entry, advancement, career changes, and self-interests. Developments in digital technology from portable devices to desktop systems support individual learners and interactive groups allowing them to learn when and where it is convenient.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is used as a frequent reference as a result of the wide range of public online open learning resources provided by MIT.

Primary social media (program platforms and applications) utilized are:

WordPress Review

Easily the most accessible and possibly the most commonly used content management system (CMS).

The strength of WordPress is in its quick installation and the massive user and developer community.

This versatility results in a vast array of plugins and enhancements for the platform.

Therefore, WordPress is the underlying “program” which additional social media “applications” will become an integral part of. (2015 Gartner CMS Report) Also review: WordPress Com and WordPress Org

Twitter Review:

Twitter has become a social networking resource for getting real-time news and connecting with high profile individuals and celebrities.

Twitter is used extensively throughout, providing scrolling streams of tweets via the application search function. Twitter has changed dramatically over the years, becoming a top source for real-time news sharing. (about tech)

For a micro-blogging site with a text limit, Twitter has made its mark online. It’s an ideal platform for mobile users, and it is easy to share multimedia content in tweets.

Also review: Twitter.Com

Twitter is a remarkable service, as it provides open access to all writers, amateur and professional alike, and provides a forum for advertising and promotion on a minimal budget. As users become experienced in using the service, they will become more proficient and exacting, as a matter of pride.
