  • ITQ - is aimed at IT users and not professional IT staff such as engineers and developers. ITQ is tailored to the needs of your business and your staff. It provides analysis of workforce skills such as making the best use of technology in business systems and in communication with colleagues and customers. It recognises that all organisations need IT skills but that these will vary in level and type depending on individual business needs and the use made of technology in the organisation. ITQ even allows for the inclusion of bespoke units in recognition that many employers have their own unique IT systems.

  • Before we show you the eye candy, think of it this way
  • Nothing more than to signify a difference between the way the Internet has been used since the early 1990s (Web 1.0 or the old web) and how it is being used now (Web 2.0) and the difference between printed traditional media and something newer.
  • Web 2.0 is a collection of tools, applications and changes in working practice that have enabled people in communities to become more connected, to network with their peers and to collectively campaign as force not possible before. It has enabled supporting organisations develop a new way of working with their members; getting the message to them faster by using new techniques (all the senses not just printed word) and has allowed members to directly comment on and influence the organisations direction. Social Media is a way of using tools and platforms running on the Internet to instantly collaborate, share information and experiences, or have a conversation ideas or causes we care about. It’s a world where anyone can be a publisher, a reporter, an artist, a filmmaker, a photographer or pundit …. even an activist or citizen philanthropist!
  • Other examples: Bebo (aimed at a younger age group) and MySpace (very good for musicians) LinkedIn (more professional business use)
  • Don’t have to go with established social networks. Can use ning to create your own.
  • It may be helpful for a group of people to be able to work together on a document at the same time. They may be drafting a policy together, preparing a grant application or producing guide to services. One option is to save the document with the author’s name and a version number and circulate it by email. Even in small groups documents can get out of sync and take time to work through. An alternative is a wiki, a collaborative web site that allows authorised users to change the content of the pages though the internet, as well as view a history of changes. Alternatively online document services such as Google Documents offer a way of sharing word processing documents or spreadsheets, so that there is just one copy of a document as it evolves. Whatever the choices the tools are becoming easier to use and may well suit organisations of all sizes who have want to help people collaborate.
