Embedding a Twitter feed in a Moodle Course | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

If you are using Twitter for Teaching, Learning or Assessment, then you may want to embed a Twitter Widget into your Moodle course, so that students who aren’t using Twitter can see what is happening.

Embedding Twitter into your Moodle course involves two steps:

1. Create the Twitter widget
2. Paste the code for your widget into Moodle

How You Can Prepare for Twitter’s Potential Upcoming Changes | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Twitter strategy might be shifting and the implications for our personal and business experience could be profound.

If you're in social media marketing, you probably cringe at the mention of the word EdgeRank. I know I do, because it makes me think of how frustrating it is that even the best of my brand's Facebook content might not be seen by more than 200 or 300 of our 57,000 fans unless I spend money to promote it.

Brace yourselves, social marketers, because algorithms just like Facebook's EdgeRank might be coming to Twitter. In this post by our friend Mark Schaeffer, you can learn about some of the reasons why Twitter is thinking about implementing this, including the pressure from investors now that Twitter has gone public.

Interesting article written by @Ally Greer. To me, the potential Twitter algorithm boils down to this: As a brand, you need to build relationships with your community of supporters.



In 2014, you have no choice. The popularity contest/honeymoon is over. You MUST focus on people. It's not a "me vs. them" approach, it's what should have happened a lot earlier.



It doesn't matter if you only have 50 followers. What matters is what you do with them. If you have taken the time to know them, they will help you make it to the top. Period.

How To Integrate Facebook, Twitter And Google+ In WordPress

How To Integrate Facebook, Twitter And Google+ In WordPress | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Integrating social media services in your website design is vital if you want to make it easy for readers to share your content. While some users are happy with the social media buttons that come built into their design template, the majority of WordPress users install a plugin to automatically embed sharing links on their pages. Many of you will find that a plugin does exactly what you need; others not so much. Some are poorly coded, and most include services that you just don’t need. And while some great social media plugins are out there, they don’t integrate with every WordPress design.

 

If you aren’t comfortable editing your WordPress templates, a plugin is probably the best solution. If you are comfortable making a few edits to your theme, then consider manually integrating social media so that you have more control over what services appear on your website.

Adding a Twitter feed to Moodle

Adding a Twitter feed to Moodle | elearning stuff | Scoop.it

Last year Twitter changed their API which caused a lot of custom blocks which implemented the Twitter API to stop working. Today I will tell you how we can re-add this feature into Moodle without any block development.

 

1. Open the Twitter account that you want to show in Moodle and navigate to this page: https://twitter.com/settings/widgets

2. Click “Create New” to create a new widget and copy the html code to your clipboard (Ctrl + C)

3. Turn on Editing and add a new HTML block. You can do this by turning editing on on the home page, find the “Add a Block” block, as shown below, and then select “HTML”.

4. Click HTML Source view.

5. Paste (Ctrl + V) the widget code into the HTML editor

6. Save your changes and view your new Twitter block in Moodle
