Online Platform: Live Learning, networking and business development environment
This is an already animated environment where you or your staff can develop the right skillsets and practices without need to make the full investment into setting up and maintaining your own platform. This enables us to easily connect with others interested in, and engaging around, our topics of interest. This means you do not have to get the conversation going. Deepen the discussions. Build visualisations to show points of convergence with others as a foundation for potential collaborations around emergent insights.
- Show examples of what comes out of it: OpenCare - A better kind of contact tracing, collective autonomy Report, Digital Futures report, Stewardship Report,
- Add-on features from: https://www.discourse.org/features
- Add-on features for Graphryder & SenseStack
White label option available : We can install and help you customise your own platform.
Add ons for Online Events
Rapid Landing Page generator
We have developed a stack of modules that enable you to quickly set up a single purpose with relevant content .This makes it easy and inexpensive to so things like set up a website around a specific activity such as conference or crowdfunding campaign. As well as present content picked from the online forum that enables your to feature discussion threads or high quality posts with little additional work. Everything is easily updated through the platform. Examples include: http://er-campaigns.surge.sh, work.edgeryders.eu, https://youthful-brown-c96bcf.netlify.com/ and crowdfund.edgeryders.eu
Registration forms for surveys or events that smoothly onboard participants onto online forums
We want to make it easy for people to connect and start the conversations before, and after the event. So that your events generate consistently generate high roi for participants and for your organisation.
- Example: AI & Justice Summit - Booklet
- Demo: Invitation - Registration - articles on platform - summary post & discussion - booklet.
Tiered access landing pages
Example use case: Webinars or Screen videos with password-protected livechat. This is very useful for when you want to have different levels of access. For example you may want to limit access to people who participated in the preparatory conversations or participated in a previous activity. It is also useful if you want to do crowdfunding campaigns where one of the perks is to have one’s questions featured during the webinar. Example here: https://live.edgeryders.eu/
Always-on video chat meeting rooms
These are intended for things like running online events where you need breakout rooms, running team meetings or setting up a digital watercooler spaces for spontaneous chats. They are only available to people with user accounts on your online platform.
- Features: We need to ask Maria and Owen about this!
- Demo: create an edgeryders account (fill in registration form) then click here.
Add ons for Communication & Marketing
A message app-based alternative to the email newsletter
we have a chatbot on telegram and on whatsapp to which people send messages in response to a call for input on social media. That chatbot relays and aggregates the contents onto a platform where an editor can then put together a summary of what has been said and send it back to the people who participated. Use case is that frontline medical workers and activists are largely sharing information and coordinating via messaging apps . The problem with this is that: 1) it is not clear that the information shared is accurate 2) people are just overwhelmed with the sheer volume of info 3) there is no documentation of what has been exchanged — so no way of passing on learning in case of a new crisis 4) you do not keep track of who has contributed what - which means that you do not know who the real experts are that you could then turn to in the future for help. We have already developed some of the code to enable this: Now we need a rough sketch of a nice, simple user experience and interface/information architecture that works for people who are really short on time and super stressed. Can you give us 30 minutes of your time today? We are working here: #t_edgeryders_an1s2t4bxd

Research Services & Training
A team of researchers to help us seed, harness and turn conversations into collective intelligence - regardless of topic. Together their work results in an easy to understand, visual overview of what connections people in the different discussions are making between experiences, topics, concepts and initiatives. These videos we made for a course give a good idea of what this involves:

Community management services & Training
@johncoate @noemi and @MariaEuler help ensure the space is welcoming and inclusive, connect people across shared interests and help move the conversations forward towards action. But what do we mean when we say “community” and “community management”? Again some materials from a course we developed to teach others how to do this:
