(What is the Canvas Community Reward System?)
Isn't this Quest still available? I loaded the videos at work today, and played them throughout the day. I went back and clicked the watched link as I viewed every 1-2 of them. There's no OKAY button, and when I closed the quest panel, my watched links disappeared. What did I do wrong? Do I have to watch the little advertisement in the last minute or so of the video, since I knew I was going to watch them all, and already bookmarked her Story Lab and Catalog of Widgets, etc.?
Hi Ron Marx! I don't know how the quests work, but I have links to my CanvasLIVE stuff including videos here:
Connected Learning with Cats: An Index – Teaching with Canvas
Hi, Ron, at this writing, that quest is still available. If you ever experience an issue with a quest not completing, please click on the Badge Fail button you'll see at the bottom of this page and fill out the form: What is the Canvas Community Reward System? . We will then be able to investigate it. Thanks!
I also made a kind of personal challenge to go with the official Quest... details here:

Laura Gibbs - I'm still finidng my way in Twitter. This session gave me some very helpful ideas on how to use Twitter. The tips on creating the widgets was a great bonus! Thanks!
I am such a fan of Twitter; it took me a while to hit my stride with it, but it is something I really enjoy now. Especially for all the graphics people share. I just wish I had more time for it... Twitter is kind of an extra for me, something I do when everything else is done. I piggyback on the feeds of other people who work hard at their Twitter feed and read widely. :-)
My students experimented with a class twitter this year. I'm hoping that putting it front and center for next years class will help keep them a bit more motivated with it! Thanks for the tutorial!
Oh, super! One of my favorite things with our class Twitter is that students use it as a jumping-off point for "Wikipedia trails" ... here's how that works:
Online Course Wiki / Wikipedia Trails
The students have fun seeing how different the trails are and they are surprised where their own trails end up. Twitter is a fun way to seed that because there is always something in the Twitter feed that will prompt someone to want to find out more. :-)
Great Ideas! Good Marketing of the Ideas too! I like the idea of a twitter feed for a discussion board. Dynamic.
Thanks Matthew Moore! I've cleaned up the instructions at this site since the advent of the "new" Twitter widgets:
It's been a while since I did that presentation and I'm still a total Twitter enthusiast!
I like dynamic. :-)
