Digital Tools and Emerging Technologies for Libraries

With little time to spare and so many new technologies, this innovative learning delivery over 2 weeks will enable you to learn on the job, test strait away and report back into the group a week later. Keep your tech knowledge up to date.

About this course

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. 

This LIVE Webinar is run in 2 sessions of 2 hours each, one week apart allowing you time to test your new tools and report back to the group.

What you will gain from this course

1) Participants will know how to present information online in and engaging and useful way, which works with the library website but doesn't rely on it! 

2) Participants will be able to generate ideas on how to use location-aware mobile technologies in their own institution 

3) Participants will have several options for making effective videos about their services, with no need for cameras or expensive editing software
