Ohio ERC launches online social media training

Good morning, Ohio Municipal Clerks Association!


The Ohio Electronic Records Committee (OhioERC) is proud to announce the release of its first interactive, online training module!  The module, Social Media: The Records Management Challenge, 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 free 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.


The training registration can be found at http://go.osu.edu/ohioerc-socialmedia. After registering, you will be taken to BuckeyeLearn to access the training.  This training will take approximately 30 to 40 minutes.  Upon completion of the training, you will be able to print a certificate of completion from BuckeyeLearn.


Grant funding from the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board (OHRAB), through the National Historical Publication and Records Commission (NHPRC), has provided for up to 2000 unique registrations.  Since the number is limited, act fast to take this online training! 


Please share this exciting opportunity with others that you feel would benefit from the training.
