Learning 2.0 is an an online self-discovery program that encourages the exploration of Web 2.0 tools and new technologies. From the site:
This program was originally developed and launched for the staff at the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County in August 2006 with a total of 352 PLCMC participants creating blogs and many additional guests joining in. Since the program's launch, the exercises here have helped other library systems develop programs of their own, the first being the Yarra Plenty Regional Library system in Melbourne, Australia.
If you're interested in duplicating this program for your own staff, please feel free to do so under Creative Commons. And although PLCMC staff have already completed this program, this site will remain up for your use.
See also New Wiki on Libary 2.0: "The "15 minutes a day" approach to new technology is a growing trend in libraries. This wiki page is designed to provide a practical curriculum for any library interested in putting on their own Library 2.0 program. The whole reason for the '15 minutes' approach is that time is of a big concern, and certainly every library won't have time to build a full curriculum of this sort." [RJ]
