I need help from the creative community of RiotACT. I’m planning a new course on web2.0 applications @ Hawker College Evening School. I have preliminary approval but I need a name (I don’t have a creative bone in my body).

The course outline is below. Basically I want to introduce non-techheads to the latest and greatest tools on the web without them needing to install a thing.

Can anyone help me out with suggestions for a name for the course that is catchy without being offensive or geeky.

The first course: (4×2.5hr) would cover:
1. Gmail – Huge, free and easy to use webmail.
2. Del.icio.us – Easiest online bookmarks for the world to share.
3. Flickr – Easy photos storage and sharing.
4. Blogger – Easy creation/posting of your own blog.
The second course: (4×2.5hr) would cover:
5. Netvibes – an awesome AJAX-based start page.
6. Meebo – an AJAX-based chat client that works with AIM, Google Talk, Jabber, ICQ.
7. Vimeo – is for video what Flickr is for photos.
8. YouSendIt – Send large files without file size limitations.
9. Writeboard – a web-based word processor where multiple people can login and share ideas.
10. Digg – a news and story-based site where users get to decide what gets shown.

How about Webchoices? It worked for the gubbmint.

They don’t need to worry about file sizes, 8. YouSendIt – Send large files without file size limitations.

“Safe, free and easy web resources.”
The course sounds good, but think the second part will be too advanced for beginners. File sizes always confuse people.

How to become a nerd – hehe. I’d take it!

Easy Internet for Everyone.

Internet Fraud 101.

“The internet is not just for Porn”

“Become a L33T G33K in 4 easy sessions”

“the internet is for porn but it has other uses too”

Easy, No cost, Online communication tools.

“A bunch of tools”

No, hang on…

Perhaps straight forward “Introduction to Webtools” or “Webtools, or how I learned to stop worring and master the internet”

(that’s my suggestion, I’m not calling you a froob)

How about Byte Club?
