Online interaction can help groups expand their reach and extend their depth through well designed, deployed and facilitated online interaction spaces and processes. Full Circle Associates is skilled at assessing your needs and helping you design and deploy such spaces and practices. We have helped clients across the globe execute online meetings, support distributed networks, trainings and deployment of virtual teams, communities of practice and networks.
We can help you identify interactive web-based online interaction strategies and processes to connect with your audiences, constituencies,members or collaborators. We also can work with blends of online and offline strategies. Applications include communities of practice or interest, virtual teams, distance learning/training, online events and conversational communities. We deploy a full range of strategic options such as online conferences, live or asynchronous events, collaborative content creation (text, audio, video), building shared knowledge bases and many other types of interactions. We support these outcomes using tools such as blogs, micro-blogging (i.e. Twitter) wikis, Voice Over IP (i.e. Skype) chats, events, newsletters, dynamic websites and email lists. We can take you from concept to execution by assembling a team of specialists to meet your needs for creating online communities and collaborative workspaces.
We have a particular interest in helping groups build internal competencies to design, build and facilitate their own interactions and support this through a blended range of services. We pay particular attention to process. Our services include:
- Needs assessment (technical, target audience and purpose/goals)
- Creative ideas and imagination – exploration of possibilities
- Site concept strategic planning and social architecture
- Evaluation and selection of interactive tools and software
- Site design and implementation (short and long term online events)
- Provision of experienced online facilitators
- Training of your online facilitators (online and F2F)
- Site monitoring and critique
We teach a range of online facilitation classes through Full Circle Training. We can also do private label, in-house online facilitation trainings in our online training environment, or combined with your face-to-face events.
