Recommendation 7

Summary of recommendation: ALAC should choose – taking into account budgetary constraints and technologies already used elsewhere in the ICANN community – its own communication and other collaborative tools.

Summary of tasks in implementation:

  • The communication and collaboration needs considered unmet by ALSes and RALOs will be reviewed.
  • Technologies already used, as well as those not used, within At-Large and ICANN will be reviewed as solutions to these unmet needs (accessibility and cost/benefit issues will be considered).
  • A plan for the use of those technologies deemed appropriate will be created and implemented within At-Large.
  • Recommendations, as appropriate, will be made for the use of these technologies elsewhere in ICANN.

Implementation Task

Status

Notes

7.1

 

Review of communication and collaboration needs considered unmet by ALSes and RALOs globally   

Completed 

This task has been referred to the Technology Taskforce, its continuous progress will be supervised by the At-Large Staff.

 

7.1(a)

Introduce to the ALSes selected information-dissemination, communication and collaboration tools (such as Posterous, Twitter Twibes, mobile-device compatibility) and provide training.       

Completed

See: At-Large Structure 2010 Survey Workspace

 

7.1(b)

Conduct a survey of ALSes regarding communication & collaboration tools

Completed

See: At-Large Structure 2010 Survey Workspace

7.2

 

Review of technologies already used by At‐Large and across ICANN that could fill all or some of the 7.1 needs of the ALSes and RALOs 

Completed

This task has been referred to the Technology Taskforce, its continuous progress will be supervised by the At-Large Staff.

 

7.2(a)

Establish a Technology Task Force (TTF) of community members that would periodically review the  appropriateness of available technology, help train RALOs/ALSes in new technologies introduced and possibly staff a help desk.

Completed 

This task has been referred to the Technology Taskforce, its continuous progress will be supervised by the At-Large Staff.

7.3

 

Review of currently available technologies not already used by At‐Large or elsewhere in ICANN that could fill the 7.1 needs of the ALSes and RALOs 

Completed

This task has been referred to the Technology Taskforce, its continuous progress will be supervised by the At-Large Staff.

7.4

 

Create and conduct implementation plan for training ICANN's IT Support in the 7.3 technologies (and, as needed, in keeping IT Support current in 7.2 technologies) 

Completed

This task has been referred to the Technology Taskforce, its continuous progress will be supervised by the At-Large Staff.

7.5

 

Based on At‐Large's choice of communication and collaboration tools to best fill its needs, make recommendations for use, or not, of these tools across ICANN 

Completed

This task has been referred to the Technology Taskforce, its continuous progress will be supervised by the At-Large Staff.

7.6

 

Create and conduct implementation plan for the periodic identification of technologies, either newly introduced to the market or updated, that can better fill the 7.1 needs of the ALSes and RALOs than those technologies currently being used 

Completed

This task has been referred to the Technology Taskforce, its continuous progress will be supervised by the At-Large Staff.
