Web 2.0: Introduction to Web Second Generation Web Tool

Due to the overwhelming interest in our summer course offering of Web 2.0: Introduction to Web Second Generation Web Tools, the course content is now linked from the Tucker Library Instructions and Guides Web page . This content is currently available as a self-paced, non-interactive course only. Web 2.0 will be offered again as an interactive class in the near future.

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’).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.

To view, go to the class blog, click on the green Library Labs header, 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 Introduction page.

You will learn about:

  • Blogging and RSS
  • Wikis
  • Social networking
  • Social bookmarking and tagging
  • Web office tools
  • Photo sharing
  • Online hosted video and podcasts
  • Mashups

The staff extend a special thanks to the Medical Library Association’s Social Networking Task Force for providing content for this course.
