For this lesson:

16. Learn about wikis and discover some innovative ways that libraries are using them.
17. Create a wiki or add an entry to a Vermont’s 23 Things sandbox wiki.
18. Take a look at some online productivity (word processing, spreadsheet) tools.

Way back in my first e-mail about Vermont’s 23 Things, I referred to it as a winter learning opportunity. My vision certainly didn’t include entering Week 10 with the snow still flying.

So, to take our mind off of the still increasing snow banks, let’s sit down with some hot chocolate and look at free web-based online productivity applications (word processing, spreadsheets, calendars, presentations, project management, and web conferencing) and the most recent Web 2.0 Awards list.
