the future of libraries in the digital age
I am new to Library 2.0.
I have a question regarding training volunteers. I am working on a school paper on Educational Technology and our assignment is about creating an OER or online course.
I have trained volunteers and I know, though helpful they are, the training takes time. So I was wondering about an optional online training module.
It would be simply and focus on the library and the specific task they are training for, for example, circulation or shelving. Of course any training would be supported by in-house training.
Have any of you heard of this type of OER? What are you thoughts on training volunteers and could you see them learning this way?
Thanks for your input,
