Katapult’s Online Collaboration Toolkit

The goal of the Online Collaboration Toolkit by Katapult is to help public-private partnerships identify and start using effective tools for online meetings, file management, presentations, and co-creation. This toolkit is designed for partnerships that are moving their collaboration and meetings online for time and financial efficiency. It is particularly useful for those who are just getting started with online collaboration and are looking for guidance on which tools to use.

What is it?

The toolkit is a PDF document that offers several suggestions for services in these categories. It is divided into five categories: meetings, data storage, brainstorming & collaboration, presentations, and website. Each category offers several suggestions for tools that can be used for that specific purpose. For example, the meetings category offers suggestions such as Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams, while the presentations category suggests tools like Prezi, Google Slides, and Canva.

How do you use it?

To use the Online Collaboration Toolkit, partners should download the PDF file and share it with their team. They can then research the tools they need by selecting a category and finding up-to-date comparisons online. After identifying a tool that fits their needs and budget, they can try it out using the free version for 30-90 days and evaluate its effectiveness. Finally, if the tool works well, partners should consider investing in a subscription for the full-featured version to save time and expenses in the long run.
