Imagining Web 2.0 in Your Organization: The Wonderful World of Wikis with Cindy Chick

Plan to attend the webinar, Imagining Web 2.0 in Your Organization: The Wonderful World of Wikis with Cindy Chick, on May 21st, 2009 12:00 – 1:00 PM Central Time.

Wikis are well-known as collaboration tools, but they’re also easily the fastest way to create mini-web sites on the Intranet or Internet, making them a good tool of choice for many knowledge applications. Wikis can be used to track the status of a project, compile deal documents with commentary, build a small intranet, or collaborate on a procedures manual.

Cindy will discuss the variety of wiki tools available and identify wiki pitfalls and limitations.

Who should attend? Anyone who is interested in implementing wikis in a law firm environment including:

  • Library Directors
  • Library Staff
  • Knowledge Managers
  • Technology Managers

Speaker: Cindy Chick, Global Manager of Knowledge Systems, Latham & Watkins LLP
