CAM 2011 Workshop:  Have a High-Impact, Low-Budget Website Now!
Wednesday, March 2, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM 

All museums need a website but not all museums have the big budget to hire IT staff or design companies. Fortunately, it is easier than ever to create low-budget, high-impact participatory websites that will allow you to engage, inform, educate and enrich your constituents.  This hands-on workshop introduces you to “best of breed” tools and resources allowing you to create a Web presence that will put you on the map.  Learn about hosting, design tools and the new Web 2.0 applications that will allow you to expand your Web reach.  Instructors: Jim Angus, Senior Facilitator, NASA Engineering Network, Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  Registration Fee: $10. We recommend bringing your own laptop but a limited number of computers will be available for early bird registrants. Transportation not included.  Located 0.2 miles from the Hilton Pasadena at the Pasadena Public Library, Central Library Branch, 285 East Walnut Street, Pasadena, CA 91101.
