- Occupy your space to test our system, and learn how to build own!
Our e-campus opens its doors to individuals, groups, and communities that are sharing a co-operative and solidarity economy perspective. We invite you all to start experimenting with and exploiting the possibilities: http://networkedlabour.networg.nl/moodle/course/index.php?categoryid=9
Federating Moodle and Big Blue Button and using other plug-ins provided with the Moodle, NLU e-campus platform allows to run feeds from other websites and blogs, host social forums, embed external media, page and other tools (like pads and wikis) and give access to scheduled online classrooms on each spaces created on the e-campus. Together with other design and admin options the overall system becomes a weapon of mass-construction, for networking and organising.
NLU e-campus now gives access to individuals, groups and collective projects access to productive and creative collaborative tool-kit that enable users to schedule, assign and execute tasks collectively, to organise strategic exchanges, skill sharing meetings, press conferences, art shows, film screening, reading groups, educative or action oriented events in all forms in one big shared space.
The NLU e-campus is organised as for main spaces: the ‘Conference Halls‘ which is devoted to one time large events; the ‘Training Centre‘ which is reserved to various types of classes; the ‘Labour and Trade Unions Forum‘ which is built for the use of labour and union related events and debates; and finally ‘Open Spaces for Collaborations‘, the space created for the use of work groups, collectives, and collaborative -local or global- projects. If you like to reserve a space for your courses, events, or group’s meetings just send us an email and we will help you to create and manage it as you like! (admin email: email@example.com)
