Twitter and Other Backchannels
Twitter and other backchannels provide a free-form communication service to exchange information and network with peers. Campuses are using Twitter to promote events and share late-breaking news; faculty are using Twitter to increase student engagement; others use it for microblogging and communicating with their professional networks, including this EDUCAUSE 2011 MARC conference. This session will offer an opportunity to delve deeper into innovative uses of this online application.
