The Benefits of Virtual Collaboration
SNRD Africa’s workflow utilises modern digital tools. Each working group and community of practice has access to an internal community platform. Based on Microsoft Sharepoint technology, these virtual communities with their knowledge sharing and exchanging on management practice have become essential to active cooperation, networking and partnership.
Virtual collaboration via the community platforms adds value:
To exchange with members on current topics in real time, e.g. in webinars and online meetings, online discussions, blogs and fora
Options to share news, updates, announcements and articles among members
A document management system: upload and administer documents and information, share documents, information and links with other members
To work jointly on documents and presentations (via MS Office online) in your working group or CoP
A better knowledge management through wiki functions
To organise, prepare and document your events and meetings
A calendar function synchronised with Microsoft Outlook and push-messages for updates – never again miss a webinar organised by your working group
The option to administer tasks and duties and your working group, to organise polls and surveys among members
Option to share links to external communities, institutions and websites
The SNRD newsletter
