Sep 26, 2008 05:00 PM
The purpose of this workshop is to assist projects in creating and managing a project website using the freely available IW:LEARN Toolkit. In addition, related ICT subjects such as GIS and content syndication will be discussed.
NOTE TO PARTICIPANTS
Participants are requested to bring their own laptop computer for use at the workshop.
The workshop is appropriate for information specialists, IT managers and project members who are responsible for developing and/or maintaining a project website.
Participants will gain a comprehensive overview of the Toolkit capabilities and functions including freely available resources on the internet. Participants will also gain hands-on knowledge on how to create, manage and maintain the website with little or no IT knowledge.
Participants will be introduced to WebGIS using the Toolkit's GIS module including how it can be used to access data from other GIS map servers on the internet.
IW:LEARN will have a better understanding of project needs and develop a joint work plan to address these needs in reasonable work time.
In addition to covering the cost of hotel accommodation, meals and transfers to and from the airport, IW:LEARN will sponsor air travel (economy airfare) for one project member to attend the workshop.
Participants are advised to arrange for their own travel insurance.
