The At-Large Technology Taskforce (TTF) evaluates and reviews different technologies and tools that can help the ICANN At-Large Community and other related groups communicate, collaborate and accomplish their goals and objectives for ICANN activities. These tools range from chat tools, web conferencing tools, captioning to anything that will help Individual Internet users become active in the At-Large Community. Technology provides the tools that enable people to connect, collaborate, and work towards making the world more accessible, enabling the benefits of the Internet to be available to all.
We welcome anyone who is interested in collaborating and seeing how we can better meet the needs of ICANN At-Large to participate, suggest ideas, and become an active member. We have recently opened up the group to other ICANN constituencies and look forward to working with all ICANN communities to solving common problems. All who are interested to join are welcome. We look forward to your participation and involvement.

The TTF was established as part of the recommendations coming from the ALAC/At-Large Improvements Project Final Report in June 2012. These recommendations include:
- Under Recommendation 3 "ALS-RALO-ALAC structure to remain"
- 3.1 - Introduce to the ALSes selected information, dissemination, communication and collaboration tools and provide training.
- Under Recommendation 7 "Choice of communication and collaborative tools"
7.1 Review of communication and collaboration needs considered unmet by ALSes and RALOs globally.
- 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.
- 7.2 - Review of technologies used by At‐Large and across ICANN that could fill all or some of the 7.1 needs of the ALSes and RALOs
- 7.2(a) - Establish a Technology Task Force (TTF) of community members that will periodically review the appropriateness of available technology, train RALOs/ALSes in new technologies, and possibly staff a help desk.
7.3 - Review of available technologies not already used by At‐Large or elsewhere in ICANN that could fill the 7.1 needs of the ALSes and RALOs.
- 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).
- 7.5 - Based on At‐Large's choice of communication and collaboration tools to best fill its needs, make needed recommendations for use, or not, of these tools across ICANN.
- 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.
