eSeminar: Social Networking Communications & eLearning: Tweeting in Adobe Captivate Course Modules

Tablet PC with cloud of application iconsAs the web evolves it’s impossible to ignore the ever rising tide of social networking. The ability to micro-message, inquire, post & share our ideas, thoughts and questions in virtually every context has given rise to expectations that within our eLearning modules, students and teachers should be able to communicate effortlessly. Advancements to the Adobe Captivate Twitter Widget are designed to facilitate this sort of immediacy within your courses by leveraging the Adobe Captivate Course Companion to send instant, context relevant messages from inside Adobe Captivate course modules between educators and learners & even between students & their peers. Join Dr. Allen Partridge for a walk-through of this social media learning innovation, in order to learn how you can introduce social networking into your own courses.
