23 Things: self-directed online course using digital web 2.0 tools

Do you want to learn how to use some Web 2.0 tools, such as blogging, twitter, RSS feeds, LinkedIn, Flickr, Dropbox? Look no further than 23 Things which is taking place this Michaelmas Term. Simple sign up and get started.

“23 Things is a self-directed course, run as part of the Engage programme, that aims to expose you to a range of digital tools that could help you in your personal and professional development as a researcher, academic, student or in another role.

Who is it for?
The programme is open to all members of the University of Oxford, regardless of their position or status (staff, student, full time, part time, etc.). If you are not a member of the University, you are very welcome to participate in the programme, but you may not be eligible for support.

If you’re already an experienced social media and digital tool user, don’t worry! The ‘things’ cater for different different levels of engagement, so you may find ways to take your digital communications even further.

How does it work?
To take part, you’ll need to set up your own blog (don’t worry – we’ll cover that right in the first week). You can then register your blog with us (we’ll explain that too) and use it to post reflections on the Things and your participation. If you already have a blog, you’re welcome to use that to participate instead.”
