Colleges and universities learned from the communications failures during the Virginia Tech massacre, and many have established emergency plans that use various forms of technology to warn students of a security risk. This morning, Casper College in Casper, Wyo., faced a shooting on campus and used Twitter as one avenue to alert the community and communicate with students and faculty during the crisis.
All classes and public events on campus are closed for today because of the homicide. More information still forthcoming.—
