- applied through World Heritage Catalysis
In the effort to facilitate a commons oriented community of practice, technology matters. World Heritage Catalysis applies a variety of technologies - some proprietary, other open source. While we aspire use of open source, cooperatively owned and governed technologies, we take a pragmatic approach (#technology4good)
Being transparent in use of technology we want to explain why we have chosen this specific technology and allow members to make a deliberate decision on the use of the various services. Use of technology may be subject to change. Some of the below the below services are already integrated, others are under consideration.
Applied in vitsitor management
The Visitor Management Assessment & Strategy Tool (VMAST) is the central tool applied and supported by World Heritage Catalysis. VMAST was developed through UNESCO and is an open educational resource hosted and supported by Zegeba in collaboration with World Heritage Catalysis.
The World Heritage Exchange Trading System (WHETS) is incubated through World Heritage Catalysis and is currently in a concept development stage. WHETS intends to supplement VMAST with a collaborative infrastructure. It is not yet determined what technology WHETS will apply.
Facilitating community & supporting collaboration
WHETS presence but no activity
World Heritage Catalysis is not yet present at Facebook but will set up an account primarily used for announcements.
We will not make use of Facebook as a primary technology to build community.
