Web 2.0: Online communities and social media - 10 Feb 2011

This practical course will clear away any perceptions that Web 2.0 is a mix of confusing jargon and technology, and demonstrate how Web 2.0 thinking and tool use can help publishers to become more successful.

In both of these cases and many others, project management techniques can be employed to ensure a successful outcome. The course will demonstrate, through the use of case studies, how to apply effective project management techniques within publishing.
