Microblogging is the Web2.0 technology of the moment, having applications in many domains, including education. This paper will focus on Cirip.eu, but the conclusions can be extended to other microblogging platforms. Cirip.eu is an environment specially designed for education, having many uses such as: information and knowledge management, courses enhancement, delivering entire online courses (or in a blended manner), collaborative projects, communities of practice, hosting different workshops/scientifical events, building e-portfolios etc.

The main aspects the paper will focus on are the following:

-the facilities offered by Cirip.eu to use it as a modern and flexible Learning Management System (LMS), integrating participants' Personal Learning Environments;

-how microblogging can be integrated with other Web2.0 technologies, and into the Open Educational Resources movement;

-how the experience and the new pedagogical approach in using micro blogging can be captured and formally represented as learning design objects;

-how learning design objects can be shared, discussed, improved, reused on the microblogging platform.
