Nancy WhitePresentation
Field StorySlide deck used n a virtual session on knowledge sharing; structures used virtually:
What, So What, Now What
2/11/2014Even though it's already 4 years old it is an important resource; an introductory text would help (e.g. what was the intention of the session; how many took part; how did it go; for whom could this be of interest..)

What, So What, Now What

Keith virtual LS experience 1
?Collaborative (?) ListGeneralA matrix of all LS with an overview of who tried them virtually and to which extent (e.g. breakout groups)Created June 2014; last update Dec. 2017Would be good to clarify the intention and the contribution to the document - is this intended to be updated by anyone who tries out a structure virtually? -> do an introductory text; if the intention is to give help to others who might want to try out sth. then it would be great to have their contact information
also, it would be great to see which platform was used as a sort of third (fourth?) dimension of the matrix
Virtual LS Master
Jim BestCollaborative (?) ListGeneralA matrix of all LS with an overview of who tried them virtually and to which extent (e.g. breakout groups)Created 6/27/2014; last update Jan 2017Looks pretty similar to the 'Keith virtual LS experience 1; if both are intended to be a collaborative journal it would be great to consolidate; notes regarding the other document apply as well
Nancy WhiteChecklist / decision "tree"GeneralKey questions to consider when planning to design a virtual session using LS building up on each other to help decide whether or not to do this virtually using LScreated 9/29/2014; last update 12/02/2017Would be great to get context&intention of this document -> do an introductory text
RRU debrief of using LS online
CTET RRUVideoField StoryDebrief on how RRU used LS online5/30/2016It's a looong video - there might be good stuff in there but it's hard to keep with them through the whole video; a short content description would help; min specs: who is RRU? What was their challenge/what did they do? How many took part? What Structures did they use? can we learn sth/get tips?

LS Platform Experiences
Nancy White (& Keith?)Collaborative journal
Notes on virtual platforms enabling LS
What platform did you use? What worked? What would you have liked additionally or differently in terms of features?
Created 6/18/2014; reviewed Dec. 2017Looks like this got an ethousiastic start and was discontinued; -> do we still need this document? --> could we merge it w/ 'Keith Virtual LS experiences 1'?
Using Adobe Connect
Keith McCandlesVideoField StoryKeith: "Here is an example of a session convened in Adobe Connect for the Organization Development Network (ODN in the USA).  This is a link to the recording (90 minute session) with all the screens and text as it unfolded.  Approximately 35 participants joined in from across N. America. "
?it has a menue to navigate to "group activity" - so don't be afraid to review 90 minutes ;-)
Could benefit from a list of structures used
