Objectives:
A workshop for Cochrane entity webmasters or those editing or managing entity sites using the Collaboration's content management system, Drupal, to learn about all the tools and resources that are available to make the most out of their online presence.

Description:
Cochrane entity websites that use the Collaboration's website builder system in Drupal will learn how to maximize the impact of their online presence using tools already available in the system. Tools include RSS newsfeeds, blogging, podcasting, feed aggregation and social networking and web 2.0 tools. Also, we will discuss and gather ideas on how to expand upon and improve the system to best meet the needs and requirements of entities including Centres, Branches, CRGs, Fields and others.
