Welcome to the blog for Learning 2.0 @ Mac for McMaster Career Partners! This page provides more information and an FAQ on the program.

What is Learning 2.0 @ Mac?
Learning 2.0 @ Mac is a hands-on, immersive learning programme that provides an opportunity to explore Web 2.0 tools and the impact these tools are having on education & campus services. All participants are encouraged to use the programme as an opportunity to check out 2.0 technologies and think about ways in which we can use these tools to deliver innovative services. Learning 2.0 @ Mac is all about exploration, discovery, and play!

What are we learning?
For 12 weeks (starting November 5, 2007), participants will use freely available online tools (such as Blogger, WordPress, Google Reader, and del.icio.us) to complete a number of activities. Each week focuses on a specific type of tool (e.g. blogs, RSS, wikis) and each activity will give participants a chance to explore the tool and consider the ways in which it can be used for campus services. Participants are encouraged to use their blogs (which they will set up in week 2) to discuss their thoughts about and reactions to the tools and technologies they explore. For a complete list of weekly activities, click here.

How is it going to work?
Every Monday, I will add the week’s content to this blog. Once the content has been published here, I will email all programme participants the link to the post for the week. Participants will then complete the activity and log their response/reactions on their own blogs.

Getting Help
This programme is being run by the Emerging Technologies Group at McMaster University Library. I (Amanda Etches-Johnson) am your contact for all things L2@Mac related, so if you have any questions, or need help with anything, feel free to get in touch with me!

Thank you to…
This programme is built on the original Learning 2.0 @ Mac programme offered to Library staff in early 2007. ETG is indebted to the Learning 2.0 program at the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenberg County and Helene Blowers for the inspiration and ideas!

    This training will enable me to explore new computer applications at a reasonable my pace. I’m looking forward to the learning and exploring how I might incorporate applications for Employee Career Services.
