This is part of the second wave of online training I'm doing with PiCS in 2017. There will be three separate courses, done across a couple of different time zones for the Australasian library world. They're all communication themed, and the second set are on digital marketing and online tools.
Time and date
The training will take place over two sessions a week apart, each lasting two hours.
- Digital Tools Part 1) June 13th. 9am - 11am Auckland time.
- Digital Tools Part 2) June 20th. 9am - 11am Auckland time.
[Click here for all times and dates: including this course at different times and dates, and two other sets of workshops delivered online for PiCS this year.]
This online training covers several useful online tools to help modern libraries communicate. They're all free to use, they all help solve existing problems, and they're all available to use right away (rather than being some kind of 'future trend' which is still a couple of years off...)
Tools and concepts covered include marketing with video, online publishing platforms, augmented reality, mobile and apps, and geolocational platforms.
In week one learn whats new, take away and test it out. Come back in week two and share with the group your experience.
These will be interactive online workshops, using online software. Delegates will log-in on their PCs, and we'll run the training and provide tech support, plus all the slides and materials and an online booklet with the tasks and instructions in.
As well as hands-on exercises, there will be chances throughout to ask questions and interact with other delegates, just as you'd expect in face-to-face onsite training. All the content and materials are tailored for the online environment and I've got this whole thing down to a fine art, it works well.
We've left a week between the two parts because there will be some ideas to go away and play and things to try out between sessions. In this particular course it'll be all about trying out the tools and emerging technologies we discuss.
