CLT recently ran a workshop for the LSE Library e-literacy for e-learning programme called “Social software: Blog it, Tag it, Share it”. The session started with an introduction to blogs and then how to search for and find useful blogs. We then looked at various online tools available for keeping track of multiple blogs. The second half looked at social bookmarking with del.icio.us and various academic collaborative linking and referencing sites such as citeulike.
Rather than say more about it here I’ll point you to a recording or ‘screencast’ of the session created with Camtasia. You’ll need at least Flash Player 9 for full functionality. You can also find all of the links referred to at del.icio.us as well as the traditional presentation PDF, plus handouts for the personalising Google exercise and for the Google Reader exercise.
We’re running the session again on November 24th if you fancy experiencing the live event!
