Last week I began the new class of Online Journalism. First task: getting students signed up to Twitter. Then, I asked half the class to ‘twitter’ my lecture on, er, what Twitter is. I then asked the other half to twitter me talking about the news diamond. While I gave the lecture I had my Twitter page on screen so that students could see the twitters coming in as I spoke. The result is shown below – start from the bottom and work upwards. Forgive the poor image quality – I reduced it to 8 colours to make the file size reasonable.
Great idea! Loved to have something like this in my first OJ-course.
