As part of the role out of Canvas for our institution I want to use social media mainly twitter (with Periscope) and Facebook (using Facebook LIVE!) to deliver training on specific features/functionality and pedagogical techniques regarding Canvas VLE. 

This will be in conjunction with more traditional face to face sessions and additionally using Webex (or another video conference tool) for online delivery workshops.


Here is an example of our Periscope online discussions

Here is an example of our Facebook Live sessions

I was live talking about the 'Blank... - Colt Wolverhampton | Facebook 


I was wondering if anyone on the community has used social media to deliver short focused training sessions? Or if you have any other different processes to deliver Canvas training?


Canvas is an exciting prospect for the University and I truly believe that it warrants something new and exciting in the way we deliver training on it.
