with Ken Varnum

6-week eCourse
Beginning Monday, June 2

Drupal is an open source content management tool that allows users to build complex websites without extensive programming, making it perfect for library websites. In this introductory eCourse, librarian, consultant and Drupal expert Ken Varnum will give participants the know-how to get a library website up and running.
Estimated Hours of Learning: 30
Certificate of Completion available upon request

Learning outcomes:
*         Functional knowledge of Drupal
*         Ability to build basic websites
*         Experience in developing a fully-functional Drupal website
*         Knowledge of resources for expanding the functionality of a Drupal-based library website

How this eCourse Works:
The eCourse begins on June 2. Your participation will require approximately five hours a week, at times that fit your schedule. There are no live sessions. All activities take place on the website, and you will be expected to:
*         Read, listen to or view online content
*         Post to online discussion boards
*         Complete weekly assignments or activities

Instructor Ken Varnum will monitor discussion boards regularly during the six-week period, lead group discussions, and will also answer individual questions. All interaction will take place on the eCourse site, which will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It's recommended that students log into the site on June 2 or within a few days for an overview of the content and to begin the first lesson.
