Transcript of "Enhancing Your Online Community With Web2"

  1. 1. Enhancing Your Online Community with Web2.0 Karen Brooks
  2. 3. What is a Widget? <ul><li>According to Wikipedia, “A web widget is a portable chunk of code that can be installed and executed within any separate HTML-based web page by an end user without requiring additional compilation. They are derived from the idea of code reuse. Other terms used to describe web widgets include: gadget, badge, module, webjit, capsule, snippet, mini and flake . Web widgets usually but not always use DHTML, JavaScript, or Adobe Flash. Widgets often take the form of on-screen tools (clocks, event countdowns, auction-tickers, stock market tickers, flight arrival information, daily weather etc).” </li></ul><ul><li>The technology used for widgets has been around for 25 years. </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.niallkennedy.com/blog/timelines/widgets/ links to an interactive timeline of the widget. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Important to Know <ul><li>They are used on phones, on computer desktops and on the web. </li></ul><ul><li>As any program code, widgets can be used for malicious purposes. One example is the Facebook “Secret Crush” widget, reported in early 2008 by Fortinet as luring users to install Zango adware. </li></ul><ul><li>Educational Widgets should come from reliable sources. </li></ul>
