· Distribute materials efficiently and effectively e.g. email being distributed automatically to WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yammer, Diigo

· Collate materials efficiently and effectively e.g. minimise effort in the creation of online magazines using Flipboard and paper.li

Once established these tools will enable you to advertise to a wide audience with the minimum of effort.

The course would run for 4 Wednesday afternoons from 1-4pm
