HootCourse

A HootCourse is an online classroom. HootCourse uses a combination of the most popular social networks and blogging platforms to provide a new type of online virtual classroom.

HootCourses are built on tweets and status updates in real-time. There’s no particular structure to them, at least no more than a classroom with chairs and a blackboard; they’re a simple construct that lets a teacher and pupil interact.

It’s a virtual environment built to facilitate the free-flowing dialogue of an educational setting. Like a real-world classroom, it leaves teaching materials and format to the teacher.

HootCourse’s flexibility lets students interact anywhere they can use Twitter — at a computer, on their phones, or on a tablet.

Students can tweet questions, concerns or corrections during a lecture without interrupting the flow of the lecture. The flexibility of the Twitter platform allows students to tweet from phones, tablets, or laptops.
