Web 2.0 Course now available anytime

December 24, 2008 by

Congratulations! You have made it to the revised introductory page for:

Web 2.0: Introduction to Web Second Generation Web Tools.

This content is now available as a self-paced, non-interactive course only. Web 2.0 will be offered again as an interactive class in the future.

The Tucker Medical Library staff is pleased to bring you this online course. No prior knowledge of Web 2.0 technologies is required. This class provides an eight part hands-on introduction to 2.0 tools about the benefits and challenges of Web 2.0 as related to medicine and research and the management thereof. Content includes background readings, discovery exercises (along the lines of ‘try this tool out’). The staff extend a special thanks to the Medical Library Association’s Social Networking Task Force for providing content for this course.

Since this was originally designed to be an eight week interactive course with National Jewish Health employees, some of the content will not be applicable as a self-paced course. Library staff will respond to questions, comments or concerns as time permits.

Click on the green Library Labs header anytime and you will find a list of course content on the right side navigation bar under Library Labs. You will probably want to start with the Welcome page.

  • Wikis
  • Social networking
  • Social bookmarking and tagging
  • Web office tools
  • Photo sharing
