Networking Via the Web course

The workshop looks at optimising web browsing, getting the most out of RSS, the potential and expectations of mobile web access, applications on the move, and the usefulness of Social Networking.

Practical elements throughout the day will enable participants to begin networking online, embed dynamic content and personal updates directly to their own web sites or blogs in the classroom, providing real experience of the skills needed to do it.

This course is aimed at media and entertainment creatives who will be introduced to a variety of free online tools, community platforms and collaborative services through hands-on sessions.

No formal qualifications are necessary to attend. However, participants will need basic computer skills and a text enabled mobile phone.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own wi-fi enabled laptops; a 160 character biog; a 160 word biog, a PDF with 3 pages or more; and a square photo or graphic. More details will be given on booking.
