How it works

These Components can be Configured to Meet Your Needs:

Host Posts – are used to structure a conversation into distinct sessions, questions, agenda items or sub-topics to address.
Easy-to-Use Collaboration Design Tools - include use of conversation Templates and design guides for specific purposes and hosting methods.Templates also make it easy to replicate and re-use successful collaborations for new purposes or new groups.
Small Groups – can be used to break a large online group into small groups, and bring them back together again. Hosts can set group size and group assignment method to increase diversity or similarity, sharing ideas and insights.
Group Pages – Groups and organizations can create their own branded Group Page as a single container for all of their Trusted Sharing collaborations, plus easy links to their external resources, such as Google Docs, Dropbox, and calendars. Group pages can be private or open to the public.
Innovative and Scalable Harvesting Methods - make it easier to elevate best ideas, create summaries, and discover patterns for more effective sense-making and follow-up.
Use of Trusted Networks and Shared Interests – to widely spread participation in conversations, and to filter content of very large conversations for greater relevance.
Ratings and Data Analytics – can be used to drive content filters, to measure and encourage listening and cross-perspective dialogue; and to assist in harvesting ideas and solutions that have the most widespread support.
