CS-SIS Web 2.0 Challenge is Now Available

I'm posting the message below on behalf of Bonnie Shucha, but OoTJ readers should feel free to contact me with any questions!

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 Service Special Interest Section's 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 is intended for those who have little experience with these technologies but are interested in learning more.

Although enrollment in the course is now full, anyone may follow along with the course as a guest. Most of the course content will be available to you. To access the course, go to and select "Login as guest"

The course is scheduled for the five weeks after the AALL Annual Meeting (July 21-Aug. 24, 2008). You may follow along with this schedule, or at your own pace if you prefer.

If you're planning to attend the AALL Annual Meeting, I invite you to attend session H1, Cool Tools: Energizing Law Librarianship with Web 2.0 on Tuesday from 9:00 to 10:30. I'll be leading one of the showcases in which I'll discuss the Web 2.0 Challenge and preview the course content.

If you have any questions about the Web 2.0 Challenge, please contact course organizers, Bonnie Shucha , Debbie Ginsberg , or Meg Kribble.
