With the new structure and the new name, Societ3 Academy also made some significant enhancements to both, the training program and also the way we deliver the education.

Enhanced Education Model / Delivery
While the biggest advantage of our Academy was always the hands on experience right inside the social web, collaborating online and acting in real cases, in the real environment, we did recognize the need for onsite training class room education.
Online Only Training
For the more advanced users we continue to offer online only classes. Meaning the entire program is delivered in a “hybrid model” of self paced online learning and instructor lead online workshops.
Class Room Training
Most of the new classes are a combination of two day intense training in our training center in San Francisco or Cannes (France) and then 3 to 6 weeks hands on experience. All project exercises are performed in teamwork and online collaboration and participating in weekly instructor lead online workshops.
Business Relevant Education
Social media is neither complicated, nor technically challenging. You will find thousands of free webinars and lists of tips and tricks online. Some of the more challenging business aspects can easily be learned through any of our $49 online lessons including exercises. But at some point in time you want to get real world project experience, without using your customers as ginny pigs. You will want to do things right at the first time. When it comes click to social business strategies, social media marketing concepts, crowd sourcing initiatives, improving customer experience, service models, and many other business aspects, a solid education becomes mandatory. S3 Social Media Academy programs assume that attendees have been through a first series of experiments and now want to get a professional and effective education.
