Web 2.0 and social media learning opportunities

Basic CMYKTechnological innovation is taking place at a breath-taking pace. Simple, open source Internet applications designed to enhance collaboration are now available to the wider public at little or no cost. These new technologies, known as Web 2.0 and social media, enable people to collaborate to create, share and publish information.

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation EU-ACP (CTA) is hosting a series of 5-day learning opportunities in collaboration with various institutions across Africa. These will cover advanced online searching, getting information via alerts and RSS, collaborating remotely using wikis and Google Drive, using VoIP, online mapping and social media.

Participants will get a chance to see what others have done, get hands-on experience on how to use innovative applications, and assess how they could adopt these innovations within the context of their work and organisation.
