TELL ME MORE ABOUT E-VOLUNTEERING!

According to the Digital Agenda Scoreboard 2014 there are almost 360 million regular internet users - those that use the internet at least once a week. But they’re not only passive users – thanks to the Web 2.0 technology they can also create the Web. Every day people and communities share knowledge and skills, give advices, support each other on forums and do many different things we call: E-volunteering.

 

E-volunteering is a volunteer work conducted via the Internet. It is often called also virtual volunteering, cyber volunteering, digital volunteering, online volunteering, but it always refers to work where an online system (accessed through a computer, a mobile device, etc.) plays a key role in recruitment, facilitating access to tasks, and conducting that tasks (source). And there are plenty of activities that can be done via the Internet:

 

e-learning, free Web counseling, translating documents, researching information, editing or writing proposals, press releases, newsletter articles, forming assistance and self-help groups, moderating online discussion groups, coordinating campaigns, creating web pages, teaching on-line courses, providing expertise, designing graphics, editing videos, creating podcasts, monitoring the news, tagging photos and files, offering feedback and many, many more!
