over the past month i’ve been working with jay cross to develop a online course to help workplace learning professionals get comfortable with the new technologies emerging on the internet and their application in workplace learning situations. blogs, wikis, and web 2.0 tools for learning is an "unworkshop."
what’s an unworkshop you ask? an unworkshop is an online, personalized learning experience that combines the formal learning aspects of synchronous webinars, with real life, hands-on experiences, and individualized coaching in support of each learner.
by the end of the unworkshop, you will:
- Be the author of your own live blog
- Create a wiki to share with your colleagues
- Know how to take advantage of RSS for educational purposes
- Understand the principles underlying Web2.0 technologies.
during the last two weeks of february, jay and i will run the beta version the workshop. if you’d like to learn more about what we are doing, go to the application form and let us know if you’d like to be a part of the beta or have us inform you when we are ready to launch the full production courses after the beta.
Please feel free to pass along this information to any colleagues or employees who you think would like to get up to speed with the power of web 2.0.
