Published on


So you've heard people talking about them, but are blogs and wikis just another technology fad? This interactive seminar will help you to understand why the latest wave of collaborative e-learning tools should have a place in your training toolbox and what you need to do in order to start using them: Blogs and wikis explained, including live demonstrations; The value of using blogs and wikis as e-learning tools; What information technology you need to host a blog or wiki; Other issues related to using blogs and wikis in organisations; and How to get started with your own blog.
This presentation was made at a joint meeting of the Australian Institute of Training and Development (AITD) and ACT-KM on 30th March, 2005, in Canberra, Australia.
