    Tweeting Students Earn Higher Grades Than Others in Classroom Experiment
    “Students chatting on Twitter both inside and outside the classroom got higher grades than their nontweeting peers in a recent experiment conducted at a medium-size public institution in the Midwest.
    “At the end of the semester, the tweeters had grade-point averages half a point higher, on average, than did their nontweeting counterparts. And students who tweeted were more engaged.”

  • 77. Instructions
    Finding and using HTML embed code:
    In the case of Twitter, Widget code can be generated by going to About > Resources. By and large, other services follow a similar methodology or possess a Tools area. (Or, Google for HTML Widgets.)
    Generating embed code typically entails following a few easy instructions. Various options are specific to each service.
    Once the embed code has been generated, it must be copied via selecting the code and using Edit > Copy (Ctrl+C).
    Within the LCMS, a new Custom Widget must be created. After doing so, the copied code must be pasted (Ctrl+V) into the HTML Source Editor. Save the widget and add it to the course Homepage.
    Copy embed code and paste into HTMLSource Editor.
