#19 Discovering Web 2.0 Tools

Throughout the course of this Learning 2.0 program we’ve explored just a small sampling of these new internet technologies and websites that are empowering users with the ability to create and share content. But given time there are so many more we could explore.

For this discovery exercise, participants are asked to select any site from this list of Web 2.0 Awards nominees and explore it. With so many to choose from, it might be handy to first select a category that interests you (like Books or Personal Organization) and then simply select a tool/site to explore. Be careful to select a tool that is Free and that doesn't require a plug-in or download. The majority of these free, so this shouldn’t be a problem.

Discovery Exercise:

  • Select any site/tool from the list of Web 2.0 Awards nominees.

  • Explore the site you selected.

  • Create a post about your discovery. What did you like or dislike about the tool? What were the site’s useful features? Could you see any applications for its use in a library setting?


Web 2.0 – with so much to explore, just start with ONE. :)

I really enjoyed this exercise!
I chose to preview Lulu.com, it's a forum to assist would-be authors in getting published. I just might have to dust off my manuscript and try it! The site answers any questions that you might have. This would be a valuable tool for our customers because we do get asked questions about how to publish a book.
