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.
