I am working on developing a Web 2.0 course I will be teaching for Holyoke Community College starting in late September. I am using my Moodle site to teach the workshop. The course will only be five weeks long and two hours each class. It is frustrating trying to get any depth in these short time workshops. I decided to approach the workshop as tools in a Web 2.0 toolbox. What are the essential Web 2.0 tools? Firefox, gmail, iGoogle, Google reader, wiki. In 10 hours about all you can do is teach the basics.The Moodle workshop will be online so the students will be able to spend some extra time working with the tool box.
I am hoping that a variaty of people sign up for the workshop. I would like to work with people other then teachers, not that I don’t like working with teachers. But, I will spend the the school year with teachers. I am interested in finding out what people can do with Web 2.0 in other careers and in their privent lives.
