First, let’s review how to register and interact with the site.
How to Interact with the Site
1. Register and Create a Profile
The first step to engaging this online community of practice is to register and create a profile. You may do this by clicking the link in the upper right-hand corner that says “Sign Up/Log In”. While you may browse our community as a guest, we encourage you to register to make yourself known to the community, and to contribute your knowledge and experiences; this is, afterall, a community and we want you to feel safe sharing information and perspectives.
2. Contribute Content and Browse Resources
As a registered User you have the ability to contribute content to the Learning Portal! You might start by sharing your favorite DM&E resource, adding a DM&E-related opportunity or introducing yourself and your interests on the Forums! Remember, as a community of practice, the Learning Portal can only be as vibrant as its members!
3. Find Users near You!
We encourage you to use the Learning Portal as a resource, not only for information on peacebuilding DM&E, but also for networking and establishing contacts with other professionals working in this area. You might start by checking out who else in your area is registered on the Learning Portal by going to the Users tab, or telling the community about an upcoming event!
Navigating the Site
The Learning Portal for DM&E for Peacebuilding is organized into four primary sections, all of which are accessible from the homepage as well as the upper navigation bar. These sections are:
Here you will be able to add content to the Learning Portal, such as documents and opportunities, as well as start a discussion on the Forums. Also be sure to tag your documents with our taxonomy as you upload them; this will allow other Users to easily find the resource in a search.
Here you will find all the resources contained in the Learning Portal. These resources are organized by two taxonomies: Theme and Subject. Within Subject you will find specific issues relating to DM&E; for example, there is a Monitoring section which contains all resources tagged as relevant to “monitoring.” Within Themes you will find issues such as DM&E relating to Good Governance and its various sub-categories such as Rule of Law or Civil Society.
Here you will find the Learning Portal Forums, where you can interact with other registered Users, pose questions, and share experiences and knowledge. We encourage you to introduce yourself to the community here, as well as share any challenges or insights you have in peacebuilding DM&E.
Here you will find a range of opportunities relating to peacebuilding DM&E. This includes job opportunities, events, funding opportunities, as well as our custom roster of peacebuilding evaluation consultants.
Here you will find all the resources you have bookmarked. On each resource page there is a button that says "Bookmark this". Clicking the button will add the resource to your customized bookmark list for easy future access!
