This is an excellent resource for educators wishing to learn how to use Twitter to enhance teaching and learning. The resource features a logically structured, informative and pedagogically sound interactive tutorial combining text, video and ongoing quizzes to assess learning. The tutorial gives step by step instruction about how to use Twitter's main features, followed by an educator-specific section giving stimulating examples of how Twitter might be used in the classroom. The examples include a blog post with links to a wealth of additional supplementary material on the use of Twitter in educational contexts.

Technical Remarks:

The log-in screen is potentially offputting so maybe a more explicit  note could be provided prompting users to choose 'Guest' access.

What an incredible project! This is very engaging and presented content in multiple ways. The review questions were refreshing as they force the user to think about what they just watched/read, and also asks scenario questions. The lesson presented scaffolding by asking the learner about their learning every step of the way. I would very much like to use this in teaching both students and teachers about microblogging, it is a very effective and interactive platform.

Technical Remarks:

The lesson is incredibly fluid throughout the progress.

This is a fabulous piece of work! I have always loved working with Moodle and this one just reinforces my views on using the tool as an instructional resource. The Instructional strategy I found to be prevalent throughout the presentaion was Cues, Questions and Advance organizers The multimedia tutorials used are engaging and appropriate.

Technical Remarks:

Excellent use of Moodle!
