Please join us on January 26th and 27th for our two-part free TAYD webinar series on using the Internet Archive with an emphasis on the Wayback Machine! Veteran credentials evaluators Peggy Hendrickson and Shelby Cearley will be sharing some of their favorite tips and tricks for using the Wayback Machine to assist with evaluation work. We’ll have two separate webinars aimed at beginner and intermediate users of the Internet Archive.
As part of the introductory session, we’ll show you some basic steps on how to use the Wayback Machine to look up historical information from institutions like degree plans, catalogs, syllabi, entry requirements, grading scales, program standard duration, and more to ensure you are using time-appropriate information on your evaluation assessments.
Our intermediate session will focus on more complex strategies for searching for these items as well as some different ways of searching for old websites. We will get familiar with using the Internet Archive’s Boolean operators, learn some history about this not-for-profit organization, and learn how we can save information individually or institutionally to the Internet Archive. In addition, we’ll look at the Internet Archive’s library to show you some of the relevant publications useful for credentials evaluations.
Both sessions will be focused on having plenty of time for attendees to practice the strategies via a scavenger hunt! Please come ready to search and share your best ideas! Each session will last from 60-75 minutes. This webinar series is open to TAICEP members and non-members.
