Practical information

Website instructions - how to use this site


This site is more than a website. It is a collaborative online platform. As a registered user, you will be able to share insights, learn from and with each other and collaborate on projects, free from the constraints of the geographical distance that separates us.

This platform contains several tools, like policy fora, books (also called wikis) etc. that serve different purposes. Whether and how you will use them depends on how involved you want to be in the Community:

1. Reading only: “I just want to know what is going on in this Community. I want to stay tuned.”
2. Reading and first step writing: “I’m ready to try some postings.”
3. Reading and writing: “I’m routinely posting my own content and reacting to what others have put”.
4. Reading, writing and engagement: “I find myself to want to get involved even further, even take up responsibility for facilitating some of the work.”

Netiquette

  • It is very important never to just copy/paste content out of Word, Excel, etc. into the site. The formatting may carry over into the formatting of the navigation of the site. If you want to copy/paste please first do this in "notebook", which you can find in your Windows start menu, under programmes / accessories.
  • Be aware that you always have two options for communicating with members: posting on the website or sending an email to a member personally. The content of your message should determine which of these you choose.
