Earlier today, the NABJ Digital Journalism Task Force held a joint webinar with the great people at Knowledgewebb – 10 Steps to a Tech-Savvy You. The notes from today’s session are posted. Even if you were unable to attend, the information in the notes will still be very helpful. And you can check out the #kwchat on Twitter here.
For the uninitiated, Knowledgewebb, founded by Amy Webb, is a fantastic, members-only digital tools training site. Members (including me) can take self-directed classes, watch training videos, attend webinars & live chats and learn about the latest trends and opportunities in social media, website development, starting small businesses, digital content and more.
I bought my membership back in May 2010 at the advice of NABJ Media Institute Chair Doug Mitchell, who also happens to be the career coach for the website. Since then, some of the courses I’ve taken include:
- 3 Tools to Make Interactive Maps
- 50 Ways to Improve Your Blog
- Getting Started With QR Codes and Other 2D Barcodes
Amy is offering NABJ members the chance to join Knowledgewebb with a 30% discount on the yearly $129 price. Go here and use the code NABJDIGI to get the discount. Trust me, the membership fee will pay for itself after your first lesson. And bonus — when you join, Amy and her team will create a personal development road map for you, based on existing content.
If that weren’t incentive enough, Doug Mitchell will be holding a CoverItLive session Feb. 2 from 11:30 to noon: New Year’s (Employment) Resolutions. And Amy has unveiled a new lunchtime Boot Camp series, 15-minute sessions that offer a quick explanation of a new skill, website or technology for things including Quora, QR codes and Tweetdeck vs. Hoot Suite (I moved from the former to the latter). So I urge you to take advantage of this opportunity!
