This webinar will discuss innovative ways to incorporate social media into discussions, assignments, and content pages within a Canvas course.

InstructureCon agents, I have to apologize about a goof during my presentation.  At about the 17:16 mark in this video, I copied a twitter widget to embed into the html editor on a Canvas content page.  However, I skipped a necessary step.  Embedding twitter is just like embedding a pinterest board.  You need to copy the widget into a plain text file, save it as an html file, upload it to Canvas, and then use the html URL in an iFrame.  I walk through that process in this video (which I had actually prepared ahead of time in case I didn't have internet connectivity during my session):

A good spy doesn't make excuses, but I'll tell you that the oxygen was thing there for this Floridian.  And there was also a silent fire alarm going off toward the end, bright lights, villains everywhere.  I have plenty of excuses (I am not a good spy), but I do apologize for goofing up.  

Also, if you would like see the course I was using in the presentation:
