Tame The Web

Webinars and such

Man, webinars, streamed meetings, recorded speeches, etc. are everywhere. Earlier today I stumbled across a twitter hashtag #gwws discussing a seemingly interesting (haven’t had a chance to watch it yet)  presentation on screencasts and staff development. This is directly in my professional interest wheelhouse. I am lucky I noticed the hashtag. What if I hadn’t?

I, on the same hand, recently facilitated the Chicagoland Library Drupal Group.  We had some great content, discussing the soon to come and conquer Drupal 7 and how to allow patrons to make customized database lists using the Flag Module. We streamed and recorded the event (here).  I advertised on the drupal4lib listserv, web4lib, ALA Connect and Twitter.  I am positive I have missed a large portion of the audience that have or will have an interest in learning about these topics. 

I think it is important to put my recorded content in a place where it can easily be found. I also want a place I can easily find content that interests me.  Does this exist?  I don’t think so, at least I have not been able to find it.

So, might as well create it, right?  I have made a page on the Library Success Wiki as a home for these webinars, streamed meetings, recorded speeches and the like, titled Webinars and such.  I imagine I don’t have to describe why a wiki is a good idea for this.

Please add links to the wiki and spread the word.
