WebJunction- Free online continuing education web portal
If you are searching for free online continuing education courses on the web, try Web Junction. Described as an online learning community for librarians and library staff, Webjunction provides information, insights, and online learning relevant to libraries and their staff. Supported in part by OCLC and grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this web learning portal has been around since 2003 and recently updated its website.
The new interface makes it easier for librarians and staff to:
• Connect with friends, peers and colleagues from across the library community using powerful new social tools such as friends, public profiles, groups, discussions, tagging and recommendations;
• Create their own content, conversations and spontaneous communities with fast, fun and easy-to-use tools;
• Learn the skills they need to thrive in their careers with new and more flexible online courses covering general business, technical and library skills, complimented by powerful social and learning management tools that add depth to the experience.
