Bonnie Shucha has asked us to “spead the word” about the exciting Web 2.0 Challenge that is being sponsored by the Computer Services Special Interest Group of the American Association of Law Libraries. We are happy to do so. Here is part of Bonnie’s announcement:
Are you interested in learning about applications like blogs, wikis, and Second Life, but don’t have a lot of time?
Take the Computing Services-SIS Web 2.0 Challenge!
The Web 2.0 Challenge – a free, comprehensive, and interactive online course – will use hands-on exercises to introduce law librarians to many kinds of social technologies in just five weeks. The course will take only 1-3 hours per week.
The Web 2.0 Challenge will take place between July 21 and August 18, immediately following the AALL Annual Meeting. The course will focus on:
Week 1: Blogs & RSS
Week 2: Wikis
Week 3: Social Networking and Second Life
Week 4: Flickr & Social Bookmarking
Week 5: Next Steps: Web 2.0 @ Your Library
For more information, visit the CS-SIS Web site at http://cssis.org/cssis-web-20-challenge/. See also our brochure (PDF).
Registration opens today, so don’t wait. We expect that the course will fill quickly.
If you have any questions, please contact CS-SIS Web 2.0 Challenge Co-chairs Deborah Ginsberg, Meg Kribble, or Bonnie Shucha
