Twitter Widget Ready-to-Use: OU Tulsa's Schusterman Library


I'm really grateful for the nice Twitter stream from OU Tulsa's Schusterman Library @OUSchusterLib. They share a lot of good stuff, and the events they offer are always tempting. Occasionally I have a student in one of my classes (online) who is based in Tulsa, so it is also really useful for me to be aware of the OU Tulsa Library services. You can find out more at their website: Library.Tulsa.ou.edu.

So, what I have done is to create the Twitter widget, and then I published it in my https webspace (thank you, Reclaim Hosting!), and then I created a Canvas page to display the Twitter widget. The whole process takes about 5 minutes, and you can see the widget in action at the Canvas page: Schusterman Library Twitter in Canvas.

Even better: now you can just copy-and-paste the iframe snippet which you see there if you want to create your own Canvas page with the OU Tulsa Library's live stream.

You don't need a Twitter account, you don't need your own webspace: just copy-and-paste into your own Canvas webpage, and you will have the latest Library news from OU Tulsa!


I've also pasted in the Twitter widget below. And if you make your own Canvas Twitter widgets — this Twitter4Canvas Self-Guided Workshop explains how to do that — you can also choose to share them in this way! If you have a Canvas4Twitter example to share, let me know, and I'll spread the word.

Keep on reading and researching, everybody!
