Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia

So often I hear “what program should I use to write my thesis?” And, like photographers say the best camera is the one you have with you, the best program to write your thesis with is the one you have.

LinkedIn for Researchers (May 2021)

May 26 @ 12:30 - 13:15 AEST
Zoom (video conference) Victoria Australia

LinkedIn is one of the oldest social media channels. Yet, depending on who or what you listen to it has yet to reach the “maturity” of channels such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

That is, a post you make can be seen by a large proportion of your connections without having to pay to promote or boost the content.…
