Tomorrow July 13th 2015, I'll be taking part in the kickoff of a working group supporting World Bank's transition to more collaborative online practices, named CLEAR approach.


I spent some hours preparing this kick-off meeting. Here's what I've done :


1. Read Wiki Approach CLEAR 2015.pptx
....  and listed some additional elements :


a) Slide significant pros and cons on comparative analysis of the 4 webplatform (developers community profile, versioning updates management facilities, gardening facilities, confidentiality, licensing) - notice they confirm the jive and wikiskapce, but a third interesting tool could be added, Xwiki. See also this global comparison of wikis software


b) Slide 19 : identifiying possible additional key conditions for success, such as "creating a simple checklist of good parametering of the client machine and of simple know-how to use wikis", maybe with an optional introduction/integration online session with shared screen, to be proposed to all newcomers during their registration on jive or other wiki-webtools.



2. Registered on jive CLEAR space of C4D here

- tested,

- posted a short article on the blog,

- and listed some possible simple reparametering if wished (TBD, for example adding a blog for and/or by gardeners, creating a tutorial or simple short episodes of a webserie telling the story of the community with how it started and is being developed, and also modifiying categroies in blog).



3. Research on our database of key pedagogical and strategical resources
Searched in archives of previous similar tools and research for comparable institutions and needs. I browsed in our DIIGO working groups (Diigo is wiki-alike collaborative social bookmarking webtool). In our general working group (observatory) on eCulture , I found some useful resources tagged in relation to online Collaboration for Development of sustainable network of co-workers.

eCulture group is here (multilingual). Here some of the key tags identified within this group (which contain possible useful web resources such as comparative analyses, free online training services, tutorials, quizz...) :
