The AALL Computing Services Special Interest Section (CS-SIS) is pleased to offer the Web 2.0 Challenge, an online course to introduce law librarians to social software and how to use it in their libraries. The Web 2.0 Challenge will provide a free, comprehensive, and social online learning opportunity designed for law librarians by directing them in hands-on use of these technologies. The course is intended for those who have little experience with these technologies but are interested in learning more.
The online course will take place between August 3 and September 6, immediately following the AALL Annual Meeting. The five week course will cover these areas:
Participants will be required to complete a series of weekly activities, including viewing an instructional screencast; completing hands-on exercises based on the lesson; weekly blogging about their experience; and participating in a weekly small group chat session. The course will culminate with each participant developing a proposal for implementing a Web 2.0 tool in their library.
Full enrollment is limited, however, course content will be freely viewable to anyone who wishes to follow along. Enrolled participants who complete all weekly activities are eligible for weekly and grand prize drawings (prizes provided by CS-SIS). Certificates will also be awarded to all participants who complete the course.
