In the “Fabcamp and digital souk” area of the Ludovia Summer University, you can discover tools or hands-on projects in a very user-friendly way. This is how I participated in a presentation-discussion about TwittMOOC, moderated by teacher Stéphanie de Vanssay.
The latter followed a MOOC * on the creation of MOOCs. She fell for this form of knowledge dissemination and in turn decided to create a MOOC on the use of Twitter, a social network that she likes as a means of continuous professional development. She thought it would be a good way to introduce her colleagues and benefit the entire web community. Obviously, since she was working full time at the same time, this was quite a challenge, but she was able to count on the support of her “tweetlist”. For example, when it came time to set up the website, in the form of a WordPress blog, she said that completely unknown people came to her aid and guided her step by step. They were people she only knew through Twitter!
The TwittMOOC takes a completely free form. There is no formal framework, but a series of challenges to fully understand how the tool works. Interestingly, much of the learning is done recursively and immersively, that is, directly using the tool that is the object of study.
Twitter allows teachers to come out of their isolation and benefit from a support network. The more we share on this network, the more the list of people who "follow" us grows, so the more the reach of the next messages that we send extends, thus increasing the chances of response when we ask for help, for example. example.

* A MOOC (Massive Online Open Course), or CLOM (Massive Open Online Course) is a free online course that anyone can register for. We also mean FLOT (online training open to all) to designate this trend.
