eLearning Tip #23: Karmic Learning with Twitter

You probably already know that Twitter is the 140-character microblogging platform. It's where people talk about what they had for lunch. So what? But I have to tell you that sometimes it really is interesting to hear what Jay Cross is having for lunch in Palermo or Rome.

But Twitter is way more than that. Twitter is a powerful platform for resource sharing, community building and connection. It's a gift-giving economy: you give, you receive. Karmic learning.

In my first eLearning Tip for Kineo , I've created a short piece on getting started with Twitter. It's tip #23.

While you're there, be sure to check out the previous 22 tips -- all great articles written by Stephen Walsh, one of Kineo's founding partners.
