It's a Wrap!

This was an interesting exercise, Learning 2.0.

My favorite discoveries were the Image Generators (FUN!), YouTube, downloading recorded books, and LibraryThing.

It was also useful to explore the web based software applications, like ZohoWriter.
This will be important to share with users who may be on the net and need more portability of their files.

I need more practice with tagging and Technoratie, things like that.

This program's format is difficult in our everyday work world.
For one thing, the time frame to finish all the lessons is too short.
Equipment and software abilities range at each location, making it difficult to complete all the exercises in a timely manner.

Daily library tasks take precedence over this method of learning.

Could the Library set up a weekly workshop where staff can be scheduled to go to a location with the most current technology and learn the information?
I know it is hard to get staff out of the building and go to a single location, but it would also bring more importance to this type of Learning Experience to give people the workshop.
If they are in-house at their home branch, they may not be given the opportunity to conduct each lesson, or they could be interrupted in learning if their help were needed on another project.

I would participate again in this type of training. I would like to have a longer time period to complete the exercises.

Congratulations on completing all 23 things. You make some excellent suggestions and perhaps if we do this again, we'll extend the period more and offer laptops or other equipment to supplement.

Thanks Helene
