Course Outline

Find out how 2.0 applications are being used in libraries and information centres, and what actually works. Blogs, wikis, RSS? YouTube, podcasts, Slideshare? Flickr, Connotea, LibraryThing? Facebook, Second Life, Twitter? This workshop will look at the reality of 2.0: what is useful and what is destined for Gartner's 'Trough of Disillusionment', never to be seen again. 

The workshop will start with a brief overview of Web 2.0 and what it means. It will then look in more detail at how 'stuff' can be used as sources of information, as a means of enhancing services to users, and raising the profile of information services. The areas covered will include:
*	Blogs, wikis, RSS feeds 
*	Shared authoring tools
*	Start pages e.g. iGoogle, PageFlakes, NetVibes
*	Social bookmarking services
*	Using YouTube and Flickr as information resources and to promote your group or organisation
*	"Presentation" sites such as Slideshare and Authorstream
*	Social networking sites e.g. Facebook
*	To Twitter or not to Twitter

There will be a heavy practical element to the workshop so that participants can explore Web 2 and try out the technologies for themselves. There will be extensive notes and exercise sheets to guide participants through the day, and all the information and presentations will be available electronically.

**** N.B. Places on this course are strictly limited because of access to PCs****
