Online Class: Web 2.0
"Web 2.0" is a course that's designed for people who want to make sure they are ready for the next change in the Internet. While Web 1.0 started by giving people information they could easily access, Web 2.0 stepped in to help people engage.
While many online users may not have realized it, the static web pages of the past were limiting their experience. As a result, online conversations weren't happening, and people began to lose interest. Once the dot.com bust happened in 2001, designers wondered if there were ways to get people excited about the Internet again – and that's where Web 2.0 tools started to emerge.
Some of the online tools that Web 2.0 uses include blogs, social media, tagging, Wiki sites, RSS, podcasts, and more. Within the "Web 2.0" course, you will learn more about the basics of these tools, how to use them, and when you might want to get professional help for your goals.
Even though most of the conversation about Web 2.0 revolves around business and marketing uses, individual users can also benefit – and they may already be benefitting without realizing it.
With examples, lesson summaries, and quizzes, "Web 2.0" is designed to help you find out where your place in the Web 2.0 movement you might be. Since Web 3.0 seems to be coming into the picture more quickly, it never hurts to find out what's already working for audiences online – and how you can join the conversation too.
