iKnowHow: building a wiki for the voluntary sector (part 7) One week on...
One week on from the launch we are delighted by the fantastic feedback we have had both internally (at the NCVO) and externally. It has been great to hear the positive comments from users; and that they have found iKnowHow easy to use.
So, I believe this is a good a time as any to show you the value in iKnowHow by highlighting some of our latest contributions:
- Bev Hepting created a new guide on planning, vision and mission to our setting up a charity wiki
- TPP, the charity recruitment agency, added content to our setting up a charity wiki on the importance of diversity when building a board
- Amazon PR created a new guide on merger communications
These are just a selection of contributions made to iKnowHow since the launch. You can see who's been contributing to each guide by checking out the profile names and avatars at the top right of each wiki page.
Now we have a successful launch behind us, the test is to keep the momentum going. At the moment I am very busy here at NCVO HQ speaking to charities and individuals across the sector about how and why they should be a part of iKnowHow.
Given that the NCVO has more than 60,000 people on its various mailing lists and KnowHow NonProfit gets over 100,000 visits a month, we are confident of building good community of editors for our guides. But we still need your help. In particular, I'm looking for:
- people who've set up charities or social enterprises from scratch, or been involved in a charity start-up in any way
- people with experience in commissioning and procurement
- people with experience in any forms of joint working or formal collaboration between organisations.
If that's you, or you know anyone who first the bill, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new public service delivery wiki goes live next week - so keep an eye out for that. And keep those contributions coming.
