UCOL Library Learning 2.0

Welcome to Learning 2.0, an online self-discovery programme that encourages the exploration of web 2.0 tools and new technologies, specifically 23 Things.

This program was originally developed and launched for the staff at the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County in August 2006 with a total of 352 PLCMC participants creating blogs and many additional guests joining in. Since the program's launch, the exercises here have helped other library systems develop programs of their own, the first being the Yarra Plenty Regional Library system in Melbourne, Australia.

This project is loosely based upon the website 43Things (which allows you to set and track personal goals) and the Stephen Abram article titled 43 Things I (or You) might want to do this year (Information Outlook - Feb 2006).

So what do you get out of it? As well as learning new skills and exciting ways of communicating with our students, when you have completed the 23 things you will be presented with a certificate showing that you have successfully completed the programme and a MP3 player!! (UCOL Library staff only)
