New Site Launched WGCU Connect

After over a year of planning and production we are proud to announce the release of WGCU Public Media’s revolutionary new web platform, called Connect!

Connect

Connect! converges WGCU’s conventional media: Television, Radio, and Print, with a complete online community, featuring web 2.0 technology, where users can become a part of the discussion by creating individual profiles, sharing ideas, and contributing to the local dialogue.

According to WGCU, Connect!, is:

“an exciting multimedia initiative designed to give Southwest Floridians a dynamic place to explore with ways to connect within the region’s diverse and ever-evolving communities. Through Connect! the outdated concept of a passive audience is transformed into an interactive, two-way street, where WGCU invites your participation”

The new website features state-of-the-art web 2.0 technology including, streaming video, individual user profiles, an interactive journal (blog), and discussion area. The website allows anyone to register and become a user, customize their personal page, vote on journal entries and certain topics, and start discussions involving the entire WGCU audience. Check back often as we are continuing to develop the community and people continue to subscribe and contribute.

If you would like to Connect! to local Southwest Florida residents and participate in an online discussion about the things that matter most to you, login to Connect!
