HootCourses are built on tweets and status updates in real-time. There\'s no particular structure to them, at least no more than a classroom with chairs and a blackboard; they\'re a simple construct that lets a teacher and pupil interact. Most online learning solutions have the same problem. They try to be a virtual teacher instead of a virtual classroom. HootCourse sticks solely to the role of classroom. It\'s a virtual environment built to facilitate the free-flowing dialogue of an educational setting. Like a real-world classroom, it leaves teaching materials and format to the teacher. Students and teachers can sign in with either Facebook or Twitter. Both types of users can interact in the course through the HootCourse website. Twitter users can also tweet to the course from Twitter or any Twitter client. HootCourses are unique in their openness. Tweets and Facebook updates are visible to followers and friends. A HootCourse tweet about anthropology could potentially be seen by leading anthropologists. A film student can tweet at movie stars with questions. Opening the classroom to the world opens all kinds of possibilities.
