An introduction to collaborative working software

Work Out Loud is running free a series of workshops that provide an introduction to the range of free and low cost collaborative working software that is now available to businesses, social enterprises, and charities.

Cloud based collaborative working tools are helping to drive a revolution in the way we work. It is now easier than ever for colleagues to share information, and work together on projects, whether they are at the next desk or different locations.

At the workshop we look at a range of cloud tools that will enable your organisation to:

  • Securely share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations
  • Set up shared calendars and simple appointments systems
  • Work with partner organisations
  • Manage projects
  • Hold video conferences and webinars
  • Create your own social intranets and online communities

This workshop is for managers, and anyone interested in collaborative working. No IT knowledge is necessary.

The workshops run for about 90 minutes and there’s plenty of time for questions and discussion.
