Free Web 2.0 Course for Learning Professionals


Beginning today, Work Literacy, a "network of individuals, companies and organizations who are interested in learning, defining, mentoring, teaching and consulting on the frameworks, skills, methods and tools of modern knowledge work," has begun a free, six-week online course to introduce learning professionals to a wide assortment of Web 2.0 technologies. These technologies have made a significant impact in teaching, both online and classroom-based, and can be a great advantage for any instructor.

Technologies covered include:

  • Social Networking
  • Social Bookmarking and Tagging
  • Blogs
  • Aggregators and RSS Feeds
  • Wikis

A different topic will be covered each week beginning today, September 29, 2008, with Social Networking. However, the course is designed to be self-paced and can be taken at your convenience. Check it out by signing up at workliteracy.ning.com.
