Web 2.0 and Social Media Learning Opportunity in Uganda

WOUGNET will be conducting a web 2.0 and Social Media training opportunity scheduled to take place in Kampala, Kamwokya – on the 24 – 26 February 2015. We will introduce participants to selected web 2.0 applications including social media and will learn how to use them hands-on.

The Learning Opportunity will cover advanced online searching, getting information served via alerts and  RSS, collaborating remotely using wikis and Google Docs, using VoIP, and  social networking.

Participants will get a chance to see what others have done, get hands-on experience on how to use innovative applications, and assess how they could adopt these innovations within the context of their work and organisation.
