Using a platform (or a site) to engage with your community is a different experience than using social media, live meetings or a simple online survey. In this 4-hour course, you will learn about:

  • Best practices and issues of using a platform
  • Planning for an online engagement process
  • Tools available to engage online
  • How to engage and close the loop

The trainer will share her experiences from over the past fifteen years and provide a number of examples. Participants will get a copy of the presentation and a workbook to help plan online engagement projects.
