Nearly every large-scale disaster evokes an outpouring of individuals wanting to be involved in response and relief activities. These individuals, although well-intentioned, are rarely trained, experienced, or certified in any official disaster response function, and therefore can often add to the already overtaxed resources available to assist the impacted community. This session will explore the issue of these spontaneous, unaffiliated volunteers and provide some thoughts on how to address the issue efficiently and effectively. We will look at ideas for messaging regarding these individuals as well as what motivates them. The session also includes an overview of the Volunteer Reception Center (VRC) and the roles and responsibilities required in managing a successful VRC.
This class is for Points of Light staff only. As most of you know, many of Points of Light’s departments have transitioned from hosting webinars and online classes from Adobe Connect to Learn it Live. This transition has enabled us to create a robust Learning Center, that archives past recordings and advertises new online classes all in one place. Learn it Live has implemented some exciting system changes that will allow Points of Light’s online learning community to continue to thrive. Some of the changes you can expect to preview are: •Integrated conference line for users that prefer to call in •Allowance for multiple types of embedded media in the presentation area (pdf, doc, ppt, xls, and images) •In-browser access and immediate loading time •Flexible interface allowing the instructor to choose what the participants see and how big the windows are. So if you want to be front and center on fullscreen video...now you can! •Recordings are now automatically generated in mp4 format and you can download your videos right away •Both live and recorded sessions are viewable on mobile devices Check out all the bells and whistles with Sid Slover, CEO of Learn it Live, and the Training Department on April 25th at noon. If you have any questions about the event, please contact Stephanie Manciagli. She will send out connection info for remote employees before the event. See you there!
