The web is filled with tools to enable participation, collaboration and discussion, but it can be difficult to know where to start.

This resource aims to give you a few pointers to help get you started. It’s based on a combination of our own experience, discussion with other practitioners and knowledge of good engagement principles and practice. It covers:

  1. Where to start;

  2. Synchronous (same time) vs. asynchronous (different times) participation;

  3. The different uses of digital tools;

  4. Digital tools database;

  5. Other resources.
