Stage 4

In Stage 1, you started tweeting and in Stage 2, you learned about more Twitter features. Then, in Stage 3, you took a look at lots of Twitter add-ons and tools. Now, in Stage 4, you will complete a Twitter project, building your own D2L TWITTER WIDGET. 

I've chosen a D2L Twitter widget with the University of Oklahoma audience in mind, but this could be adapted to using a Twitter widget in any kind of web platform: another LMS, a course website, a course blog, etc. So just jiggle the elements of this project to turn this into a project that will meet your needs!
