Citation: Spencer, M. (2010, April 20). Introduction to Twitter: An Instructional Design Module. Powerpoint presented at the 15th Annual TCC Online Conference.
Abstract: This project sought to implement an instructional module that can serve as an orientation for new users of Twitter. The module covers important aspects of Twitter such as explaining what Twitter is, how Twitter works, how users can get started using it, and tips beginners should know. The module was created as an interactive PDF so that users would be engaged by animations similar to those in Powerpoint presentations, be able to answer questions that mimicked Flash, and easily distributed across multiple computers. The module was tested by participants and its effectiveness evaluated in a survey completed by participants after they finished the module. At the heart of the project was the thought that having a better understanding of Twitter before using it would help new users with adoption.
