When Royal Roads approached us with the project of setting up a collaboration platform that allows students of Royal Roads University to work together beyond course structures and even after they graduated university, we were excited. Gathr.ca is a platform that lets people get together in groups around topics of interest in order to "create the change they want to see in the world" (one of Royal Roads University slogans).
Features of the platform are event management, collaborating in groups, a bulletin board, a resource library and an extensive user and media management. This type of platform can be transferred to other areas, such as community platforms or internal business collaboration platforms, to mention but a few.
The Learning-Hub of the International Institute for Child Rights & Development in Victoria is a platform where people all over the world can communicate about projects that are realted to the children's rights. It also offers space to attend virtual and real-life courses and get certified by IICRD's recognized stamp and certification system. We are glad to have been able to contribute to such a good cause by setting up the tools that members around the globe can now use to work on behalf of children all over the world.
The platform lets members collaborate on projects, or offers the gathering space for course participants.
