Twitter Updates Inside Online Courses

Twitter Updates from @DrLepervanche are replicated in several online discussion forums to generate conversations about current topics. Students select one tweet per week, visit the link if there is one, add their comments about the tweet, article, report, or video, and then post in a thread adding the tweet as a reference. Some of the comments are then fed to Twitter. Students do not need a Twitter account although some of them create one to continue the conversation after the course is over. A Twitter Widget is used in the courses.
