Powerful Personal Portals

Perth (Oct 23)
The term "portal" is kind of old Web 1.0-ish concept (remember when everything was "My_"?) that is being reinvented using Web 2.0 technologies. Learn how to use free web tools such as Google Home Pages, PageFlakes or Netvibes to quickly and easy build custom portal-like web sites that aggregate information from multiple web sites, RSS feeds, and offer add-on "widgets" or small useful tools built into a web page; use to create topic hubs, student generated information resources, etc or to organize your own private web dashboard.
