Please join Lorna Costantini and myself on Wednesday, March 17th or March 24th at 7pm EST for a ‘Twitter for Beginners‘ webinar. The session will be in Elluminate and anyone new to using Twitter is invited to join us. If you are already an avid Twitter user, please invite colleagues and friends to join our session tomorrow evening or on March 24th.
During the session, Lorna and I will walk the participants through the basics of using Twitter. Participants will sign up for a Twitter account and the use of the Tweetdeck application will be featured to demonstrate different aspects of using Twitter. Participants may already create a Twitter account and download Tweetdeck for use during and after the Elluminate session.
Tweetdeck is a fantastic application to manage Twitter feeds but it is not required to successfully use Twitter. Tweetdeck is an easy application for beginners and helps Twitter users become more adept at using Twitter on a larger scale and for this reason we will be using this application in our sessions.
If you are new to Elluminate, you may want to join the session a bit early to make sure that you do not have difficulty accessing the session. You can use your computer microphone to ask questions or use the chat window to participate in the discussion using text only. The ‘Twitter for Beginners’ session will be offered through the ‘Host Your Own Webinars‘ group at LearnCentral.You can register for the session at the LearnCentral event page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This session is free and open to the public. If you are unable to register or email us prior to the start of the session, please still join us.
The “Twitter for Beginners‘ webinar will be the first session of our new venture and offerings of our innovative ‘eLearning Center‘ training center. Each week, Lorna and I get requests for us to create webinars on a variety of topics for beginners. Our sessions will be designed to offer support and resources to beginners just starting to use web 2.0 tools and technologies. All of our training sessions can be customized for groups of employees or faculty members.
