One of the biggest impact to our work is Social distancing, also called physical distancing. This is a set of non-pharmaceutical interventions or measures taken to prevent the spread of a contagious disease by maintaining a physical distance between people and reducing the number of times people come into close contact with each other. Today we are sharing with you various networking tools that can be used with your teams or clients during this unprecedented crisis:

* Conferencing tools * Presenting tools * Engagement tools * Project management tools * Other tools

Networking tools

Conferencing tools

Zoom – A popular tool for video conferences and webinars. No matter where you are or which device you are connected to, you will be able to join a meeting. It is very easy to set up and to use. You can download the free version and give it a try. If you like it, we recommend that you get the Pro version, which has unlimited meeting duration and cloud recording, among other advantages.

GoToMeeting – A popular alternative to Zoom, which is easy to use and has all of the functionalities that you need, including screen sharing and a new feature which enables you to start a meeting from the Slack project management tool.

FreeConferenceCall – A free service that offers online meetings, video conferencing and audio conferencing.

Webex – Another great tool that is comparable to Zoom and GotoMeeting, with screen sharing and document sharing capabilities. There is also an app available, which means you can easily use your mobile phone or tablet to stay connected wherever you are.

OpenMeetings – An older tool providing video conferencing, instant messaging, white board, collaborative document editing and other groupware tools.

BigBlueButton – Web conferencing tool designed for online learning.

Jitsi – Open source video conferencing tool for small or large groups.

Vidyo – A tool commonly used for healthcare organisations, governments and education facilities

Presenting tools 

YouTube Live – Some of you might already be familiar with the online streaming options of YouTube Live. One of the advantages of this tool is that you can have a very large audience and choose who views you by creating an unlisted streaming (only the people with the link can see it). Zoom meetings can also be streamed via YouTube Live.

Facebook Live – This is a great option for Facebook lovers. A Facebook profile and a camera in your device is all you need. One of the advantages of Facebook Live is that it is more interactive than some of the other tools; your audience can react and comment with emojis and you can interact with them.

Engagement tools 

Slido – If your priority is to engage with your audience during a conference or webinar, Slido is the tool you are looking for. It offers live Q&A and multiple poll options. You just need to create an event code and share it to give the floor to your audience. Free version available.

Swipe – Free to use and easy to use too! Although there is a restriction on the number of questions that can be asked.

DirectPoll – Create instant polls and share them with your audience during presentations. This tool also works really well as part of PowerPoint presentations too.

Project management tools

Slack – A well known project management tool, which “brings the team together, wherever you are”. This collaboration software is intended to make remote working easy and efficient. You can organise your projects and conversations through the ‘channels’ in which you speak to your colleagues and share multiple files, photos or documents. It integrates with your other workplace tools and has a great search function.

Glip – A team management tool that also allows you to hold conference calls. The free version has most of the functionality of the paid for version and even includes unlimited chat, unlimited users and unlimited storage.

Freedcamp – Another popular tool, which is free to use and easy to create team management flows for projects. One of the more popular functions is the task board for projects, as well as the gantt chart feature.

Miro – Online whiteboarding platform that brings teams together virtually.

We are offering to help Painters and Authors During the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The Covid-19 pandemic is in full force, and artists, painters, authors have been hit especially hard as book tours and gallery shows and exhibitions are being canceled for the foreseeable future. With such a major revenue stream drying up almost entirely, finding ways to continue supporting artists in the coming months is now an urgent priority for anyone who cares about books, art and the artists who create it. The good news is that we’re already seeing many fans going above and beyond to support artists across Jaamzin.

To raise even more awareness around the pandemic’s impact on painters everywhere, we’re waiving the fee to feature art pieces maximum 3 pieces (email to apply) or for author's (1) book title, for the first 10 Interview orders starting this Friday, May 1 (from midnight to midnight Pacific Time), and rallying the Jaamzin Art community to put much needed money directly into artists’ pockets.

Why digitalmarketing for your artist is helpful?

For many artists and authors, a single day of boosted sales can mean the difference between being able to pay rent or not. Still, we consider this just a starting point. Authors and artists will continue to feel the effects of lost touring and art shows income for many months to come, so we’re also sharing some ideas below on how fans can support the artists they love and how artists can give fans new, creative ways to provide support.

It may sound simple, but the best way to help artists is with your direct financial support, through the coming months as we work to support artists in this challenging time.

Recently we are working on an education innovation platform. The idea is to activate youths and high school and higher education level students, using education innovation to promote the development of the knowledge, skills, understanding, values and actions required to create a sustainable world, which ensures environmental protection and conservation, promotes social equity and encourages economic sustainability. It takes on the Open Society Open School's concept, by providing a more engaging environment for learning and makes a vital contribution to the community: student projects meet real needs in the community outside school and draw upon local expertise and experience. And finally: learning in and together with the real world creates more meaning and more motivation for learners and teachers.

Our work revolves in co-strategizing and execution of the communication for a new global (and local) platform tool aimed at advancing partnerships that deliver on five focal sustainable development goals: education, climate action, sustainable cities, reduce inequality within and among countries and the circular economy.

Engage with key government and private sector partners, educators, schools and youth communities. The word of the project name 'Proovikivi' means 'touchstone' in English, but in Estonian 'Challenges'. It was formerly 'GTL Lab'. It uses "Project-based learning" which is a student-centred pedagogy that involves a dynamic classroom approach in which it is believed that students acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems.

Besides these activities, UXSCOOPS is also focusing on the eLearning sector. The CARe Network is very much supportive of two other new eLearning programmes:

UNCRPD e-Course. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is an international human rights treaty of the United Nations intended to protect the rights and dignity of people with disabilities.

The other course is NGO Social Media e-Course which is also an eLearning programme. We really support these great e-courses as other than the useful course content, it is a paperless way of learning, it protects the environment to a lot of extent As per a study done on eLearning courses, it has been found that distance-based learning programs consumed around 90% less power and generated 85% less amount of CO2 emissions as compared to traditional campus-based educational courses. #sustainability#sdg#elearning#digitalmarketing#nonprofit#edtech
