The Event

During this 90 minute online RCCPII eConversation session Anelda van der Walt and Erika Mias will share tips and tricks as well as best practices for using a variety of virtual platforms for online collaboration in academic institutions. The conversation will kick off with two short presentations: the first focused on tools for general use and the second focussing on those more applicable in a research setting. Plenty of opportunity will be given for questions from the audience and open discussion.


The general presentation will focus on tools and platforms for collaborative document writing, virtual meetings (video conferencing), lightweight and accessible tools for project management, and virtual communication in general. The second presentation will include information on the use of online survey tools, computing platforms for data analysis, collaborative article writing, and referencing tools.


These sessions are part of the Rural Campuses Connection Project II (RCCPII) Capacity Development Initiative. The RCCP II eConveration Series will offer monthly online sessions covering topics relevant to researchers, support staff, and students at higher education institutions in South Africa.
