November 2, 2009  / Hotseat Lets Students Facebook, Tweet In Class To
Improve Learning / Steve Tally

 

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - College students have always talked about their
classes, and lately the conversations have moved to Facebook, Twitter
and text messages, often during the class lecture itself.  Now, in a
clever bit of educational jujitsu, an application developed at Purdue
University uses those backchannel conversations to improve the students'
learning. 

 

"Hotseat is really sort of subversive in a delightful way, taking
technologies more often used for things like dating or spontaneous
get-togethers, and applying them to learning," says Gerry McCartney,
chief information officer and vice president for information technology.

Hotseat is a software application that captures student comments about a
class and allows everyone in the class to view those messages, including
the professor and teaching assistants. Students can post messages to
Hotseat using their Facebook, MySpace or Twitter accounts, or they can
send text messages or simply log into the Hotseat Web site.

 

Currently being pilot tested in two Purdue courses, the application has
become a favorite of both instructors and students.

Students in the class most often use Hotseat to ask questions about the
material that they don't care to ask in class.

Lead developer Kyle Bowen, director of informatics at Purdue, says
students can post messages from a variety of social media sites. "We're
not asking them to go to a new destination or use a new technology.
We're letting them work on their studies from where they already live
digitally ... ." 

 

As an advanced Web 2.0 technology, Hotseat requires the extra bandwidth
provided by Purdue's new campus network,  ... . The network, and
Hotseat, are expected to be fully deployed across the West Lafayette
campus during the 2010-11 academic year.
