Announcing a Learning 2.0 Boot Camp
We are pleased to announce our new Learning 2.0 Boot Camp. The main focus on the Learning 2.0 Boot Camp will be the development of a plan for a Learning 2.0 project. You will work in a team to define a project idea, develop a plan, and deliver the plan as a podcast and slide set. Projects will likely take existing business processes and services and re-develop them into new models based on Web 2.0 services. Your team might find a way to distribute information more effectively using RSS feeds; or you might design a talent pool system that helps identify new talent for projects; or you might see the need for a wiki for customer service agents. You will document your project work on blogs read by all participants and faculty. And all projects will be reviewed and critiqued. At the end of the program you will walk away knowing how to use these services and with ideas about how to apply them.
You will learn: How new “2.0” technologies and services, including weblogs, podcasts, wikis, and aggregators, can be deployed for learning programs. How to build the new desktop: moving from browsing to searching to subscribing. How to plan for and build a learning 2.0 program. How to produce and distribute podcasts. How to motivate and manage networked learners. How to make the “wisdom of crowds” the outcome of your learning programs.For more detailed information on how to set up a Boot Camp for your organization, please read the attached document and call us at 617-973-9400 to start planning your Boot Camp today.

RSS, which stands for really simple syndication, is a tool for condensing information into a feed, which can then be downloaded automatically as new information becomes available. Typically sites that change or add content regularly provide RSS feeds to save users the trouble of having to visit the site and check for anything new. Read more...
