A Volunteer Community Portal has been created for Albury Wodonga VRB partnering with Euroa CEC and Berry Street, Alexandra.
This ning network will provide a space for collaboration and community development of the managers of volunteers in NE Victoria.
Events, notifications, discussions and project team members reflections will be enabled in this environment.
The portal will be provided as the first step for participants in the Volunteer programs and a stepping off point to the Googlesite for the learner support materials for CHCORG525C Recruit and coordinate volunteers and other competencies to follow.
The team will now plan to meet in Elluminate using the Albury Wodonga VRB Elluminate room and access to this room is now being provided to all partnering organisations. Some usual technical issues associated with accessing Elluminate using Internet Explorer - so we've called in the IT experts for assistance at Berry Street, Alexandra.
A Getting Started with Technology participant guide will be prepared to help the participating learners to access:
- The Volunteeer Community Portal http://way2govolunteering.ning.com
- VRB Elluminate virtual classroom https://sas.elluminate.com/site/external/launch/meeting.jnlp?sid=voffice&password=M.B5DD56B33470DF8AEC373E0C7BF681
- The Way2Go Volunteering learner support space http://way2govolunteering.ning.comhttp://way2govolunteering.ning.com
