Gerry McGovern's newsletter this week is an excellent discussion of how the Web is different from print. Gerry succinctly outlines 6 ways the Web is different than print, and it echoes my often-repeated statement that the Web is all about pointing.
And speaking of Gerry and Carewords, I held a workshop last week in Davis with a group of Master Gardener coordinators and volunteers on incorporating our Carewords into their Web sites.
We jointly critiqued each Web site, and then made suggestions for content and navigational changes. This workshop worked well for a variety of reasons - it was hands-on in a small group setting, and all of the participants were working in the same program area. This last point was key.
If you think this kind of workshop would be of benefit to your group - contact me and we can discuss holding a workshop for you.
One of the workshop participants, David Alosi from the Napa County Master Gardeners, passed along an excellent primer on Search Engine Optimization - written my none other than some folks at Google!
