  • DIGITAL ENGAGEMENT A context for virtual volunteering
  • “Providing opportunities for using informationand communication technologies (ICT), suchas the internet, as means of makingconnection within and beyond a community.” Government of South Australia’s Information Economy website http://www.informationeconomy.sa.gov.au/digital_engagement
  • “People who commit their time and skills overthe Internet, freely and without financialconsiderations, for the benefit of society.” http://www.onlinevolunteering.org/
  • Prosocial behaviour refers to “voluntaryactions that are intended to help or benefitanother individual or group of individuals”…
  • (1) there is no previous connection between the volunteerand the recipient of the service;(2) there is no expectation of any kind of reciprocity; and(3) the requests for help come at random times.
  • Volunteering is undertaken “to be of benefit to the community and the volunteer”TO GIVE IS TO RECEIVE Room for reciprocity online
  • Clearly defined tasks:“Make sure to break down your needs into well- defined tasks. An assignment focusing on one distinct task will increase your chances of finding qualified online volunteers”
  • •Starting small: “Start with just one or two short-term, simple assignments to get used to working with online volunteers”
  • Being prepared to start immediately: “Online volunteers apply at a time when their personal and work schedule allows for their volunteering activities”
  • Schedule: “A rough schedule outlined in the opportunity description will help interested online volunteers decide whether they can commit to the task”
  • Feedback for development: “To enable your organization to continue benefiting from your online volunteers’ knowledge well into future, consider each assignment as a learning opportunity”
