How Useful is Twitter for Learning in Massive Communities? An Analysis of two MOOCs

T. van Treeck, and M. Ebner. Twitter & Society , Peter Lang, (2013)


In this chapter we concentrate on an analysis of Twitter usage surrounding a German-language MOOC that could indicate future trends in technology-enhanced learning. Our research focuses on the Twitter stream accompanying the course and ask how Twitter is used and for what purposes by the heavy twitter users, by the educators / organisers / guestspeakers in the course and if tweets from “outside” get into to the stream.
