How Did We Do?

Our first module is now live and we'd like some feedback. 

How did we do? We are learning so much from this course and finding our feet as we go just like everyone else.

We're delighted to see so many registrations already. There are one or two things to consider when registering for the course.

Did you include your blog URL when you registered? 

It's OK if you didn't. You need to read the first module to learn how to set one up. Now that the first module is live you can set up your blog and submit your blog address.

The reason we have asked for your blog URL is so that we have a list of all the participant's blogs. We have made this list available publicly on a Delicious feed so that you can see who else is participating and look at the other participant's blogs. If you don't want your blog to be publicly available that's fine. We will need some way to view your blog posts at the end of the course if you want certification, but we can come back to that when we need to.

Did you submit a work blog or the blog address of your institution?

It's up to you what blog you would like to use for the course. Just remember that the blog posts that you will be writing as  part of this course will be of a personal, reflective nature and perhaps not suitable for your institution's main blog or target audience. It might make more sense to set up a personal blog and use that.
The authors and/or other participants of the course may wish to leave comments and open discussions on your blog posts, so a personal blog rather than an institutional one will allow for this sort of useful engagement.

If you have registered but you haven't submitted the URL of the blog that you plan to use during the course please do so as soon as you can. 

Here is the link to our Registration Form

If you have registered you can view the Delicious feed of all the blogs submitted so far here. We have added tags depending on the details you added in your registration form. This will help you find others working in the same field as yourself. If you don't see your blog, please let us know and we will add it.  You can either email us or comment below.


  1. Didn't realise how global Rudaí23 was until I looked at the list of other blogs on your Delicious feed - looking forward to checking some of these blogs and bloggers out and finally learning how to blog myself! Enjoying the course so far.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. We're excited to see what all these international librarians too.
