Starting in autumn we will further experiment with engaging and social live online events.
The aim of the Webinar-ICL project is to investigate ways of developing dynamic, interactive synchronous online events and using them to build online communities. We do this by offering technical and methodological support to a number of partner organisations from different sectors in the Nordic region (e.g. adult education organisations and centres, local authorities, companies with distributed staff) to help them offer collaborative webinars that will benefit their operations and target audience. By assisting a variety of organisations in organising interactive webinars we will assemble a number of case studies to be included in a toolkit that will inspire other organisations to use webinars in a more communicative and collaborative manner.“
The project will be carried out in cooperation with several adult education organisations, institutions, local authorities and companies that want to use webinars for informal learning, to build social capital and to develop collaborative communities.
One starting point of this project was the „Running an effective webinar“ webinar in November 2013. I am looking forward to a challenging co-operation project.
