AGORA is a professional-oriented social networking site for interaction between key stakeholders. Here you can browse through the different categories and interact with other participants.
You'll find two types of AGORA forums/chats:
- Opened to everyone: these are forums/chats based on the core interests of EASPD, where anyone can participate
- Closed to certain participants: some topics are closed because they are forums/chats dedicated to a specific group (projects, communities of researchers, etc.)
Our open forums are free, however you will need to enroll before accessing. This is a one minute process! You just need to click on "Enrol me in in this course" on the top left corner of your screen when you access each module, as you cans see in the image below.
Start by selecting one of the AGORA topics and choose to CHAT or to use the FORUM.
Take a look first at the different AGORA chats and forums before publishing your comment or doubt. Please try to integrate your publication in the most adequate topic.
In the CHAT you’ll be able to
send in real time messages to the other participants in the CHAT. You can use
this function to interact with other participants, post questions or to find out more about the topics discussed in the FORUM.
Please keep in mind that in the CHAT users might not be able to see your message if they are not logged in to AGORA in the moment of your message. Being an immediate way of communication, the chat should be mostly used in more imminent matters.
The FORUM is a space for reflection and sharing of experiences, where you can express your doubts, comments or opinions in with other users that share the same interests as you. Here you can start your own topic or browse through the other topics to join the conversation.
For both the CHAT and the FORUM there will be an assigned moderator, an expert on that topic from EASPD.
Don’t hesitate to ask your questions and participate in the discussions! The AGORA depends on the engagement of its public!
