What is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0 is the term given to describe a second generation of the World Wide Web that is focused on giving people the ability to collaborate and share information online. There are many different Web 2.0 tools that contribute to this sense of community, collaboration, and creativity. We will be highlighting a Web 2.0 topic every month or so to help inform you about Web 2.0 tools and resources.

In order to get you started, here is a 5 minute video that captures the essence and spirit of all things Web 2.0.

Have you heard about "social networking", MySpace, and FaceBook? Do you watch videos on YouTube? Do you read blogs and subscribe to RSS feeds? Have you added photos to Flickr? These are some of the things we will be exploring in the upcoming months.

So, be sure to check back and watch for the first "lesson" to help you learn all about Web 2.0 tools.
