“PBworks lets the whole TEDx community to share and access files and information.”
Lauren Cucinotta, Branding + Editorial Manager
1. What organizational needs were you trying to solve when you brought in PBworks?
PBworks was brought in after TEDActive 2010 because the TEDx organizers that attended wanted a platform for sharing documents and other information.
2. How were you meeting those needs prior to bringing in PBworks?
There was no platform before, so basically email.
3. How did you roll out PBworks to your team?
For the first iteration of the platform, one of the individual TEDx organizers volunteered and coordinated the rollout. Once that was working, the TED team worked directly with PBworks to understand the different capabilities of the platform, and how to best use it to meet our organizational needs.
4. How did the PBworks team help you configure PBworks to meet your team's specific needs?
We got on a few calls with the PBworks team to better understand how the platform worked, and how it could meet our specific needs. From there, we worked internally to set up the platform, checking in with PBworks along the way to make sure we were doing things correctly, and to get advice on how we could augment what we were doing.
5. How has PBworks changed the way your team works?
PBworks lets the whole TEDx community to share and access files and information. It has definitely changed the way that TEDx organizers access and share information. We now have over 6,000 organizers, volunteers, and staff on the system, sharing the resources they used for over 140 TEDx events. The shared resources have been translated into Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Korean, Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish, Russian, and Turkish!
6. How do you feel about PBworks after rolling it out to your organization?
I really like it!
