Creating your own Learning Network

This is the first webinar in the three-part series "Getting online information to come to you," but stands alone, so feel free to attend, regardless of whether or not you participate in the others.

Today we face a problem, not of information scarcity, but an over abundance of information. Getting the online information you want to flow to you is critical to keep pace with the explosion of online knowledge. This webinar will focus on mapping out your own objectives and begin to introduce tools to get you started. The main tool highlighted will be Google alerts for search and news. You’ll learn how to customize alerts for your particular topical, geographical, and individual interests.

Thought the youtube video was great. I had been using the google alerts, but didn't know the news.google tab so that was good. Thanks. I tweeted about the video.

Thanks, Donna. I really like the video. I think the message of managing your own learning is one that can resonate with those who haven't yet engaged in online networks.

Thinking that informal learning represents a return to where learning started before institutions were formed around it...

Jerry, I agree, but without the barriers to accessing knowledge that led to the creation of the institutions that codified and controlled information. That's what is so empowering; we can access it all so easily.
