    Students today are social – as a faculty member you can harness that strive to be social and create content online by using Twitter! You can create an account under your course name like Prof. Cooper does @ENG102 and post audio lectures, assignment updates, reminders, course announcements, and more by having your students “follow” you. https://twitter.com/ENG102

    Other ideas would be to create a course # and encourage your students to live tweet your lectures – ask your students to tweet out important points, new ideas, something learned, muddiest points, etc. You can see this happen with conferences all the time – GREAT conversation can come from hastag # live tweeting. See a conference tweet conversation by hashtag for the Annual Educause Conference: https://twitter.com/hashtag/EDU14?src=hash

    With a course # you can also include guest speakers – have students submit questions or ideas to guest speakers via twitter before visiting your classroom.

    Don’t forget to talk to your students about expected online etiquette when using Twitter for class – you are helping them learn how to be digitally responsible and flexible depending on their social situation! Happy Tweeting!

    I chose twitter because it is one of the most popular website and applications worldwide. Also, it has a secure privacy for any personal informations and protection from fake accounts or aggressive attitude. Most of the students use twitter to communicate with others. This application could have many accounts that share benefiting informations.
