FAQs

How do I participate in this course?

This is a free, open-source course first started and developed by a Danish Librarian, Jan Holmquist. This course is available for free to anyone who is interested.

I am neither a librarian nor from the Philippines or Singapore, can I still join 23 Mobile Things : PH & SG?

Of course! We would love to have you! Please register with us here.  Do note, however, the timing of online activities are scheduled to suit Philippine and Singaporean Librarians. Hence, might not be fitting to you (depending on where you are from).

Your session had commenced; can I still join the course?

Definitely! Please register with us here. The activities and how-to for the 23 Things will be released week by week following this schedule, but that doesn’t mean that you have to participate and join in all the 23 Mobile Things week after week. This online course is meant to be self-paced and self-exploratory. The use of this blog and the online sessions are meant to help you to track your progress and provide you with an opportunity to talk to us and seek help from our “community of learners”.
