Creating your own Learning Network

This is the first webinar in the three-part series "Getting online information to come to you," but stands alone, so feel free to attend, regardless of whether or not you participate in the others.

Today we face a problem, not of information scarcity, but an over abundance of information. Getting the online information you want to flow to you is critical to keep pace with the explosion of online knowledge. This webinar will focus on mapping out your own objectives and begin to introduce tools to get you started. The main tool highlighted will be Google alerts for search and news. You’ll learn how to customize alerts for your particular topical, geographical, and individual interests.
