A new workshop has been added to the E-literacy for E-Learning programme:
Social Software: blog it, tag it, share it!
Friday, 10th November, 12:00 – 13:30
This session is a mixture of demonstration and hands-on activities covering blogs, RSS, news readers and social bookmarking. It looks at reading blogs as a way of keeping up-to-date in your field, focusing on how to find academic and other relevant blogs. One feature of blogs is that they produce RSS feeds, also known as news feeds. RSS feeds can be collected and read in a news reader allowing you to read the content of multiple blogs and other news sites (such as the BBC) in one place. The session will show you how to set up an online news reader for collating your personalised news, saving you from having to visit each site individually. Finally, the session looks at social bookmarking, the practice of storing your Internet Favourites or Bookmarks online, allowing you to access them from anywhere and share them with others.
