How to Tweet Course Description
What is Twitter? What can you do with it? What's the point? If you are confused about this growing social media tool, this workshop is for you. Learn what Twitter is, how to use it for making connections and marketing and be able to determine if it's the tool you need to promote yourself or learn new things. Tweeting can be fun.
Website Course Description
This is a 1 1/2-hour course to impart fundamental skills to build simple websites with programs available on the web that require little or no cost. Two tools for website construction, Blogger.com and Weebly.com, will be demonstrated. Both are free with an existing email account.
The course will include free handouts and access to this website for further information. The class is designed for people who have a basic knowledge of the web (how to browse, send email, etc.) and would like to venture into creating their own presence on the internet with a website or blog.
You should leave knowing how to launch a website, although there will not be sufficient time in the class to complete a site. How you use the information -- for your life, career or creative project -- is up to you.
