A New Tab for Webinars on WebJunction Kansas:
Did you see it? WebJunction recently added a tab for webinars. Look for it on WebJunction Kansas and bookmark it for even faster access to information and registration for WebJunction’s upcoming webinars. If you haven’t tried them, webinars are a fast and free way to find out about new, hot topics or to get ideas for services and programs you can use at your own library. You can get information about even more webinars and online events through the Online CE Roundup, a monthly service of the State Library.
WebJunction Learning Paths:

Each path guides the learner through a short series of recommended courses designed to offer an efficient continuing education experience that allows the learner to attain competence by building skills and knowledge in the given area. Path topics: Computer Skills (Microsoft Office, Windows 7), Library Skills (basics, customer service, compliance for staff and diversity for staff) Lead and Manage (library leadership, compliance for managers and diversity for managers).
On Beyond 23 Things Kansas:
23 Things Kansas is still available for exploration, but Heather Braum and I have gotten inquiries from several learning pioneers wondering what is next. As a response to that question, we developed Virtual Learning: A World of Opportunity . Through its pages we hope that you will find the path to your own continuous learning using every option you can find. On our page you will find links to articles, people, media and more that will help you learn something new everyday. And don’t forget to have fun on the way.

Don’t forget WebJunction Kansas for self-paced courses. There are over 500 courses to choose from in topics ranging from library management to technology of all kinds. Courses are provided free of charge to WebJunction Kansas members so login and browse. If you are looking for some library focused courses that you can complete in two to three hours, start with the LE@D courses.
