Renee Kirk, co-founder of Sage Interactive Inc.
, will demonstrate an online community (New Futures Network) and an e-support system (Visa Center for Learning) that she has designed. Afterwards, we will discuss and brainstorm ways to effectively use online communities and e-support systems to meet the learning and information needs of companies.
New Futures Network
is an online community where government employees and their partners in the private sector come together to learn from each other, problem solve, and collaborate to build an environmentally sustainable future. The intent of the community is to ensure that people in these positions have the information, the tools, and the support network needed to be effective and successful. The primary target audience includes city, county, and regional government employees who are focused on sustainability issues and the service providers, NGOs, and academic communities that support them.
Visa Center for Learning
is an encyclopedia of information about Visa products and services, providing just-in-time training and information at employees’ fingertips. Visa employees worldwide can use this knowledge support system to access and explore information using several navigation paths to locate the information they require. Animated flow diagrams are provided to illustrate transaction processing.
