Here’s a slick little course that highlights how you can push RSS information from your Moodle course (forum postings) to a Twitter account. The course was created/shared by Sukhwant Lota (@SukhwantLota) at Leeds City College and highlights the few steps to making it happen. It’s a pretty cool little tool if you’re interested in letting students follow a course #tag on Twitter or if you just are interested in letting students see updates from the course in another venue (besides email).
