This is a request for help in letting others know about a collaborative site we have set up for the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill, to ask if you know of similar sites...and to ask for your input on making the site more useful. To help with the input I have posed some "peer assist" questions at the bottom of the page (with a little irony in that I believe the 1st place peer assists were used was at BP).
First...here is a link to the site
You should be able to view the site without logging in...but will need a Gmail account to add content to the site. If you do not have a Gmail account there is a link to their registration site on the bottom of the first page.
As part of our Master's in KM program at CSUN we regularly talk about current events and how KM is and could be used within the context of those events. Examples include what is happening in Iraq and Afghanistan...and now the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Last week in one of our weekly calls we were talking about the application of KM to the spill....discussing how KM tools and techniques could be used to help those working on and impacted by the spill. As part of the conversation we started to look for sites that had been set up were anyone interested in and working on the spill could share what they are doing, ask questions, post observations and begin to talk about lessons learned. To our surprise we could not find any publically available site. So we took a stab at creating one.
The intent of the site
Provide a place where anyone interested in the problems associated with the spill could come together to find out who else was working on the problems and what were they finding. An underlying goal is to increase awareness of the CSUN KM program by branding it with the CSUN KM name.
The layout of the site
The site has
CSUN's version of the Google Wiki
