E ngā roopu hapori, tēnā koutou
Community Research works in the digital space to share knowledge and learning with a special focus on the community and voluntary sector – all you amazing groups in the community trying to make Aotearoa a better place, street by street, town by town, city by city.
With us all having to stay at home in isolation, many of us are looking to online platforms to communicate, to meet, to keep the wheels of our work turning.
In light of that, we have some capacity to work with groups from the community sector to help upskill their staff/volunteers on how to run webinars.
A webinar is a live, virtual event that is executed online. It is an educational or instructive session that includes audio and visual communication between a speaker and attendees. Webinar software enables the sharing of slides and interactive participation through chat boxes and Q&A features.
As many of you know, we’ve run webinars for more than four years now and we have learnt lots about what makes a good webinar and how to help people access webinars easily. We aren’t tech nerds – just everyday people.
Over the last month we have trained up a team of webinar technicians in order to support last week’s online conference https://www.stirnz.org/tetiritibasedfutures
From this week onwards we will have webinar technicians who can work alongside your staff/volunteers online to show them how to run webinars using the online platform called Zoom. We find this works best if they run a webinar for you, while you learn alongside them.
We’ve managed to get our costs down to make this reasonably affordable for community organisations.

In the meantime, kia kaha koutou. Be kind. Be safe.
