How HootCourse takes advantage of existing digital identities to participate in a course
Basically, as an instructor, you use existing services like Twitter, WordPress, Facebook to give your students/participants the social learning aspect, without creating another identity especially for the class.
You can share links, ask questions, write “essays” which are blog posts (this thing, but without the categories/tags (as I’m writing on the hootcourse interface). There’s something called “Hoots” – I’m not sure what that is, but I am going to play with this to see how well it works and what applications it might have.
