Creative media students complete part of their Public Relations module by supporting the annual http://ictedu.ie conference every year on the Thurles campus. This year. pieces of rich media content have started appearing inside social media channels and on mailing lists targeting educators and exhibitors who enjoy attending the event. Several PR Tutorials on the Clonmel campus unpack business insights about the promotional material, using Twitter Analytics, Google Analytics, ...Statcounter, Mailchimp, Spreaker audio demographics, and Facebook Insights. By creating the content and watching the PR campaign unfold, LSAD students learn how to create their own Event Playbooks that could be used to promote their own businesses or to enhance advertising programmes they join during their summer work experience.

Third year students taking the PR module can often see immediate results from campaign material they produce. For example, during the two hour tutorial session on 13 March 2018, student content had a direct impact in organically boosting the message of the Voices in Education Conference. A single short video created and uploaded during the tutorial session doubled the impressions normally observed on a client's timeline. Third year students have also created a simple landing page for http://ictedu.ie and plan to grow that website's traffic by more than 1000% during the month of March.
