Work Together is a development of the IDeA's Partnership and Places Library - an online repository of good practice stories about different organisations working successfully in partnership in local areas. The new site takes the great content from the library and adds a wealth of social networking style features to it, enabling for a greater sharing of experience and knowledge.
Anyone will be able to access the content on the site and also leave comments and be involved in discussions - all without needing to register or sign in.
Registration does have many benefits though. Signed up to Work Together and try out the following:
* Create a profile, listing your knowledge and experience - and the ability to find and connect with others who have similar interests
* Join and create subject and location specific groups to share stories and information with others
Write your own blog, or collaborate with others on project blogs about partnership working initiatives in your area.
The site is a prototype and is in constant development as the design and functionality is improved to meet the needs of users. A development group has been established on the site to receive feedback and inform users about new developments. We would welcome your feedback on this site via the group.
Work Together is a prototype site for the Knowledge Hub, an ambitious project to create a culture of collaboration and knowledge sharing throughout the whole of local government. Findings from the Work Together project will inform processes and technological considerations for the Knowledge Hub.
The prototype phase will last until the end of March so we would encourage you to explore the site and give us your comments as soon as possible so that we can develop the site to meet your needs and ensure we have as much valued feedback as possible to help in the development of the Knowledge Hub.
If you have any problems with accessing the site or have any technical questions please contact Dave Briggs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- A special thank you to Romilly Rogers from IDeA for the blog post.
