Registration for Web 2.0 Challenge Opens Today

Law Librarians: Are you interested in learning about applications like blogs, wikis, and Second Life, but don't have a lot of time?
Take the AALL 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 or see the brochure (PDF).

Registration opens today, so don't wait. We expect that the course will fill quickly. Any law librarian or employee of a law library may apply for enrollment in the Web 2.0 Challenge.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at bjshucha@wisc.edu. I'm one of the co-chairs for the course.
