Prezi Technology

Designed for undergraduate students at Rowan University, for use by the Writing Arts Department and  the Writing Center, this Twitter tutorial is comprehensive, yet concise and engaging.

With the explosion of new media technology circulating not only in social spheres, but equally so in the professional arena of the marketplace, it is vital for students in diverse arenas of communication to effectively harness and maximize new media’s potential.

My objective in this tutorial is twofold: the first objective is for students new to Twitter to easily grasp the basics of navigation, the second objective is to demonstrate the broader concept of the relational dynamics behind Twitter, and the core constructs that are key to success in networking.

After putting this tutorial through rigorous user-testing, I was able to locate the intersections of mistranslation in the tutorial’s instructions and the user’s interpretation of those instructions. The current version of the tutorial has been reconfigured to correct the areas of troubleshooting thus far detected. Another facet of the current version is that additional layers have been added to make the tutorial a multidimensional, interactive experience using Prezi technology.

Here is a look at the skills that this tutorial will equip Twitter users with:

  • Learn how to set up a Twitter account.
  • Configure and customize account settings.
  • Strategically search for people to follow.
  • Gain fluidity in Twitter lingo.
  • Locate topics of relevance being Tweeted about.
  • Leverage technology to construct multilayered Tweets.
  • Set up for both mobile and laptop usability.
  • Create value for the Twitter community.

*TIP: To view the tutorial in Fullscreen Mode, first read these these quick steps:

  1. When the tutorial appears, click the gray arrow.
  2. Next, look to the right, and click on the option for “More“.
  3. On the small menu that pops up, scroll up and hit “Fullscreen“. (To return to normal view, just hit your ESC key.)
  4. Once in Fullscreen Mode, hit Automode by again clicking on More.
  5. To navigate at your own pace, simply use the left and right arrows on the tutorial to go backward and forward.
  6.  ENJOY!
