JANET Collaborate is a 'one-stop-shop' for teachers and lecturers looking for opportunities to work collaboratively, especially using videoconferencing.
The website is free to join and use. Members can search through the catalogue of Opportunities to collaborate:
- with museums, galleries, archives and other content providers
- with other teachers in schools in the UK and further afield
The site is arranged in three main sections: Find, Share and Organise.
Who is it for?
The JANET Collaborate prototype is available to all teachers, lecturers and support staff in Schools, Colleges, Universities and Research institutions. It is also available to educational content providers including museums.
How can it help me to videoconference?
With links through to the JANET Videoconferencing Service, an Opportunity in JANET Collaborate can simply and quickly be converted into a JVCS Booking and activate a live videoconference. The JANET Collaborate prototype is free to use.
Why is JANET Collaborate a prototype?
The JANET Collaborate prototype is designed to be a platform for discussion and to be the focus for the JANET Collaborate Pilot Project. The lessons learnt from the pilot will enable the development of a full production version of this service.
