What content can you find and create on this web site? This depends obviously also on whether you are logged in or not. Blog entries Each co-counsellor can maintain a blog (a contraction of the term weblog), a kind of personal web journal. Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diary. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and media related to its subject. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. You can choose the visibility of each blog entry: for your group or project only, for co-counsellors only or for everybody on the Internet. Where it co-counsellors concerns you can decide if they can leave comments. Articles An article is a much more thought-through piece of work, as opposed to a blog entry that is written more in the spirit of the moment. Once you have finished your article, you can publish it or you it be reviewed and edited by friends first. For this you set up a peer review group and invite friends in. Publish your article first in that group and give your friends the opportunity to edit its text as well. Once you are satisfied, you make your article available to co-counsellor or to the Internet. Articles have a title, a teaser and a body. The teaser appears in the overviews and is part of the body as well. Wiki Editable Pages Everybody who is logged in at CoCoInfo can edit and work on a single piece of wiki content The fact that multiple people can edit a wiki page differentiates it from a blog or an article. A single article or blog is generally attributed to a single author. A single wiki page could have as few as one author or as many as tens or even hundreds of authors. Hence there are no acknowledgements of authors. It is the collaborative effort that makes a wiki so great and that is how the Co-Counselling Community can really shine. There are several kinds of wiki pages at the CoCoInfo site: the general oneExamples are 'International Contact Persons', 'Co-Counselling Web sites'. These need to be as updated as possible to be useful. Hence all co-counsellors can update them. the book pageThese form parts of books such as 'How to...' booksThe wiki pages are created from within the respective books the minutes - time limited wikisSeveral groups and projects have meetings that are minuted. After the meeting people can edit the minutes so that they reflect better what has been discussed. After some time the minutes are finalised and then they cannot be changed anymore. As minutes are parts of groups or projects they can only be created from there. linksThese are links to a web sites and resources relevant to Co-Counselling.. Forum topics There are many Forums on this web site. The Support forumsHere you may ask for support. People can give you support by sharing their experience or giving suggestions. It is not a discussion forum. Co-counselling issues can be discussed in groups or discussion forums. Discussions will be removed from these Support forums. All these forums are visible to all co-counsellors. Discussion ForumsHere people can raise topics, discuss each other views and clarify disagreements. The Group and Project forumsAll groups and projects have their own forum. Depending on the chosen visibility, its forum might be visible to members only or to all co-counsellors. Each Blog, Article, Book page, Wiki and Bookmark has its own forum where people can submit their comments to that specific content. To add a forum topic you need to go to the specific forum where you want to raise your point. Event Announcements Co-Counselling is known for its rich variety of events, ranging from introductory workshops, to a great variety of follow-up workshops, residentials and community days. Not to forget the organisational meetings and support and topical groups. Groups In a group or club people come together with a common theme, topic, interest or denominator. Its focus is often on sharing, exchange, mutual support and networking, benefiting the group's members in the first place. Examples are an Internet based support group, a topic sharing group, e.g. coping with anxiety, a local co-counselling community or network, etc. Your collaboration can also be focused on achieving deliverables benefiting people outside the group, such as maintaining a CCI business meetings archive or wring a manual.
