|Blogger Andy Pawlowski took a look at the America East.|
As part of his America East review, Andy checked out the new-look of AmericaEast.com as well as its paths that lead you here to AExtra. He also took a closer look at the blog, noting the use of campus correspondents and direct feeds from and links to America East's Twitter, YouTube and Facebook pages.
Over the course of his America East week, Pawlowski also took a look at the web practices of Boston U., Binghamton and New Hampshire.
From Boston U., the Blast featured head men's basketball coach Pat Chambers and his blog, "Coach Chambers." Pawlowski seemed to be particularly fond of the use of journal entries from some of the Terrier players.
From Binghamton, the Blast featured bubearcats.com and its weekly feature, "Making an Impact," which puts the spotlight on Binghamton student-athletes and their contributions to the community away from the field of play.
From New Hampshire, the Blast took a look at how the Wildcats reach their fans on gameday through multimedia. New Hampshire has a dedicated "Multimedia" tab on the front page of unhwildcats.com that leads you to live game stats, audio and video.
And that is just a sampling from the nine member universities. Go take a look at each university and you'll see that America East athletic departments are really getting out and about and making use of social media and technology.
