Until recently, the timeline would only show that new posts have been added but the user had to click the link to see the updates. Not any longer!
Now, in real-time, message appear in the timeline as they are posted! This could be used to generated instant ideas or feedback from students. It can also be used as a real-time back-channel chat! Maybe you wish to create a quick poll on the fly! The possibilities are only limited by your creativity!
If you have an idea for this new auto-refresh feature, please share!
