Welcome to Learning 2.0

Welcome to Web 2.0 or 13 Things to explore and learn about Web 2.0 tools!

You have found the Dykes Library Web 2.0 blog. Chances are that if you made your way here you are either:

  • A member of Dykes Library staff who is interested in participating in the Web 2.0 Project
  • Interested in learning about some of the new Web 2.0 tools and applications (such as blogs, wikis, Flickr, and del.icio.us) that you’ve heard so much about
  • Are interested in actually playing around with some of those cool Web 2.0 tools and figuring out how to use them in your daily work and leisure activities.

No matter why, we’re glad you’re here.

Learning 2.0 is an online learning program that encourages staff and others to learn more about emerging technologies on the Web that are changing the way people, society and libraries access information and communicate with each other.

Over the course of the next 10 weeks this blog will highlight “13 Things” and discovery lessons to help staff become familiar with blogging, RSS news feeds, tagging, wikis, podcasting, online applications, and video and image hosting sites.

To familiarize yourself with this project, please be sure to read the “About Learning 2.0” page. The FAQs should answer many of your questions. If not, please add your questions to the FAQ page as a comment.

Get ready to log on, explore, and have fun! (Yes, you are allowed to have fun working in a library.)
