How do I Follow the College on Twitter?
If you don’t have a Twitter account, you should still be able to see at least the most recent of the college tweets; however, this is not “following.”
Twitter provides help to get started:
Twitter is a free social networking/micro-blogging service. When you have a Twitter account, you can send “tweets” (up to 140 characters of text) to your Twitter profile page. Your tweet is delivered to your subscribers (followers).
It’s a tool for real-time quick messaging, forwarding news, marketing your business, sending a link, and social networking.
Follow the college on Twitter and receive automatic updates of our News, along with announcements and deadlines.
Can I Tweet with a Class?
Thank you Pookie Sautter for bringing up and pursuing this example: You’re an instructor with 300 students in your class. How do they ask you a question?
What your students do
- They have to have a Twitter account.
- If they tweet you through a device other than a computer (e.g., a cell phone), they will need to go to their Twitter account → Settings → Devices and add the device.
- They don’t have to “follow” you on Twitter.
What you do
- You set up a Twitter account and name it something relevant. We’re using AskBlinky as the Twitter account in this example.
- Tell the class your username (e.g., AskBlinky).
- During class, you login to your AskBlinky page.
- Students tweet a question to @AskBlinky using cell phones, laptops, PDAs, iPhones, etc.
- On your AskBlinky page, you click on the link @AskBlinky.
- It takes you to a page named “Tweets mentioning @AskBlinky.”
- You read your students’ questions and answer them.
What everyone needs to know
- Your Twitter account can be used for future classes. Just let your new students know the UserName.
- Sometimes Twitter goes down because everyone in the galaxy uses it and it gets overloaded.
- Student questions will need to be within Twitter’s 140-character limit.

How do I Subscribe to Your YouTube Videos?
There are a couple of ways:
Jan. 8, 2010: In a how-to, question-and-answer demo, Dr. Pookie Sautter shows how to use NMSU’s MediaSite facilities in O’Donnell Hall, room 111. ICT Video Services’ MediaSite is an application for recording and archiving classroom lectures. Other video services include video conferencing, media conversion, webcast/streaming video and Internet data streaming, and webcast/streaming video archives. Video Services website: http://video.nmsu.edu. More info: Contact Classroom Technology at 575.646.2360. Video Services coordinator: Francisco Martinez, 575.646.8200, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A service hosted by Apple for colleges and universities, iTunes University (iTunes U) is web-based, free and delivers instructional content via the iTunes program. Instructors can create content for a course by recording lectures, developing assignments, and creating videos and podcasts.
Podcasts are more for serial presentations and provide a subscription-based model for distributing course content. Podcasting makes your course content mobile and allows your students to subscribe to the course and have the content automatically downloaded as soon as it is made available.
Podcasts can be converted to .mov to put on YouTube. They are not archived or saved, so save and maintain backups of your podcasts where you can get to them.
NMSU podcasts are stored at NMSU on iTunes U.
