Last month, at the Adobe Learning Summit, Shameer Ayyappan demonstrated a great new widget that Adobe is working on. This widget allows us to integrate Twitter with Adobe Captivate, creating a ‘live’ back channel in our training, one that is also archived and searchable.

Now students can easily havea conversation with the teacher and each other.

By creating a custom Twitter account and appropriate hashtags, learners and teachers/moderators can see what is bing said about a lesson.

Some extra trickery also makes it possible to associate a comment with a specific slide within the lesson, so that a visual hint will appear on a slide when a comment exists.

Shameer intimated that a release version of this widget might be available sometime this month, but until it is released, you can begin planning how you might use it by watching this recording of Shameer’s demo.
