DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire and other partners have created a series of free, extremely short, online courses aimed at teaching entrepreneurs about social media.

The new mini-courses last up to 15 minutes each and cover three topics: “Pinterest for Business,” ”Mobile Marketing” and “Instagram for Business.”

They’re being offered by the New Hampshire Small Business Development Center, which is a cooperative venture of the university, the U.S. Small Business Administration, the state and the private sector.

In addition to the mini-courses, the center offers two hour-long online courses about social media, and dozens of other free, online courses on financing, marketing and other topics for entrepreneurs.
