Using Social Media for Archaeological Groups Workshop

posted 5 Jun 2011, 06:56 by Paul Brayford   [ updated 12 Feb 2012, 09:14 ]
On Saturday 5 November 2011 we shall be holding a workshop on using web-based social media (blogs, photo sharing, Facebook, Twitter etc) for archaeological groups in Yorkshire.

The workshop will be held in York at a venue with full WiFi Internet access. Loan laptops will be available.

The workshop is intended for those who have basic computer awareness but want to know how to exploit the new social media to help build networks of interested people in their areas. and communicate their work to a wider audience. We aim to cover some of the common blogging tools such as Wordpress, Blogger and Posterous, as well as Facebook and Twitter, together with photo-sharing sites such as Flickr and Picasa. We'll cover features features such as RSS feeds.

There will be an opportunity to hear about real-life use of these tools by people working in archaeology, as well as time to get practical with expert help in the room.

Places will be limited but if there is sufficient demandl we shall schedule a re-run.

We shall publish details of booking arrangements on this page in the near future.
