The United Nations Development
Programme has recently joined the KSToolkit as a sponsor. The toolkit is alredy co-sponsored by CGIAR, the Food and Agriculture
Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the KM4Dev Community and the
United Nations Children's Fund. These organizations help manage, promote and provide support for creating and growing the Knowledge Sharing Toolkit (http://kstoolkit.org), an excellent resource of knowledge sharing tools and methods.
is a living wiki based site where a wide range of individuals from the
sponsor oreganizations and others have written or pulled together
materials about a wide range of
knowledge sharing tools and techniques. It's open to all to participate,
whether ity is just to consult the tooolkit as a resource, or whether
you would like to add new material or improvbe what's already there.
What can you do with the toolkit?
1. Use the Toolkit and share it w/ colleagues - the simplest step. You don't even need to join the wiki to read it. Bookmark http://www.kstoolkit.org/ Tweet it out!
Improve an existing page - every page on the wiki is editable. All you
have to do is join the wiki (upper right hand corner - you will have to
wait for one of us to approve - we do this to keep out spammers), then
go to the page you want to improve, click edit, and have a go! (See also
3. Create a new page for a method or tool that is not yet in the Toolkit (see also http://www.kstoolkit.org/How+to+Make+a+New+Toolkit+Page
) - Go to either KSTools or KSMethods (the lists are in alphabetical
order), click edit, write in the new message in the appropriate alpha
order, click on the link creator in the editor window at the top, and
choose wiki link. The system will create a new link. Then click save.
After the page reloads, click on the new link you made. That will take
you to a page that has to be created (by you!) Then on that page select
the KSToolkit template and start editing! (yes, we built a template to
make it easy)
4. Comment on any page... just click on the little
"comment" balloon on the upper right of any page - you have to be
logged in though!
This is a common resource - so it is as good as WE ALL make it!
