The ict@innovation groups provide collaborative spaces for registered users. The groups contain certain functionalities:
- wikis for collaborative work
- space for file sharing
- a joint calendar for group events
- forums and message posting function
Some of the web groups are private – meaning only invited users can access them. Other groups are public and can be accessed by all users, whether they are a member of the group or not.
- Public Groups may be created by any community member and serve the purpose of enabling community exchange on Open Source related topics. If you need a space to get together, for example, if you would like to get together a group of people to work on a topic such as Open Source in Education, Advocacy for FOSS, planning an Open Source event etc, you can use the ict@innovation groups as a platform. Each group contains a file sharing platform, a wiki, and a news page. You can also create groups-specific events.
Check the list of all public groups (login needed).
- Private Groups are reserved for the planning of the ict@innovation programme and may only be created by members of the programme management group, and steering committee as well as the pillar managers. You will find your groups on the right hand side menu.
