    1. (English)


    -Interesting for internal organization of the Cooperative

    -A tool to make decisions together

    -You can create a group, invite people, discuss different topics, make proposals and vote them in order to find solutions


    – Interesting for online courses

    – This is a very very complete platform. I think it’s the same used by “coursera”, in case somebody knows it. I love it.

    – The features are very extense to write down here


    1.1. possible tools for online confercenes –> one suggestion from the FairCoop Tech group. It seems very easy to use without the need to istall the software. Just share the link (like with a pad) and you can join the conference. Maybe we can test that? We can arrange a date and the way to do it. Once we know how it works, we can think about everything else better.


    Wire is good tool too, rockchat has video too (proposed for the contents of FairCoop
