Calla.chat Virtual Meetups through Jitsi
Thought people might be interested in this. I would be itnerested in similar projects.
"Break out of the box
Traditional "grid of faces" teleconferencing is designed for presentations, not conversations. The presentation and audio processing prioritize one speaker over all others. All participant voices sound like they are coming from the same, disembodied location. Everyone is lined up in a rigid grid, like you're facing down a tribunal interrogation. "

Community Site Ideas
Anyone have any experience running a community site on Cloudron? I am looking to provide the tools for a community to collaborate and plan projects within the community. It would be great if there was the ability to co-learn and co-teach as well. Something that offers much of the utility of Odoo/Flectra but with the feel and openness of Loomio.
I would like people to be able to congregate in online in workgroups with access to tools (scheduling, documents, chat (voice and video), create small knowledge bases based on the work they are doing. Share the product of their effort with the broader community. Being able to stream would be great as well. Thoughts?
RE: moodleNet - open social media platform for educators
Been a while since I checked in with moodle. Did not know what moodlenet was. Found this walk through helpful
Also very curious about Moodlework (also new)
RE: Joplin: feature rich note taking and to-do application
Thought I would add this here. As many who use Joplin are using it to replace Evernote which has OCR. This looked like a way of getting some ocr capabilities with joplin. In Markdown as well.
The text below is taken from the thread linked above:
"I built a command line companion application to supplement Joplin. The app monitors a directory you specify; when new files are created in the directory, it automatically uploads the file as text or an attachment (depending on file type) to a new note in Joplin. The app performs OCR on images and PDFs, and the text is dropped into the note as a comment. An image preview is also created for PDFs. The app requires Python 3.7 and is available on Github 371 and PyPI 38. Hope you like it!"

RE: How do you take and manage notes?
I stumbled up this today so I figured I would share it here as it can sync using nextcloud and that could prove useful for Cloudron users. You are able to format and view notes differently than joplin. I was impressed with Joplin's web clipper. Joplin's biggest asset is it has a huge following. There are alot of plugins being developed to broaden what you can do with it.
"A todo and task managing application, written in Qt and using QML for its UI. OpenTodoList is targeted at typical desktop environments (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X) as well as mobile devices such as Android phones."
This is a nice video walk through.
It looks like select whether each notwork is local or not. I am not sure if you can do that with joplin. Here is a link to the android app.
RE: Options for Audio/Video Surveys and "Passive" Communication
@robi I have had the same experience, discovering a message that was sent to me months before.
I had not thought about using a PTT service. I think the one that shows the most promise with a quick glance is the discord sandbox, as discord allows people to communicate via text and also send files. But then there is the issue that is it active for some ( the tech savy) but passive for the people who are not.
Thanks for the info. I am going to look into it deeper.
@atrilahiji I have seen elsewhere in the forum, that you are knowledgeable about Moodle. Do you think what I am thinking is possible even if a little crazy?
I am always curious why turtl is not more popular. It does not seem like it has been updated much in the past few yeas. But it does have an android app
RE: Obvious noob questions (apologies)
does Cloudron keep NextCloud up to date?
This is part of the magic that makes Cloudron such a great platform. Nextcloud is integrated
This page describes how it works
Options for Audio/Video Surveys and "Passive" Communication
I am a part of a small organization that is interested in soliciting feedback from the community. There is added interest in providing the option for people to give feedback and answer questions by either voice or video. I am curious if anyone knows any open source tools to achieve this. Even better if it can be achieved through Cloudron somehow.
The way this often happens it the user's browser asks for access to the smartphone or pc's mic/camera and a message is recorded and saved.
Here is an example a services:
While there is interested in using a tool like this for a survey, there is also interested in being able to exchange audio and video messages instead relying on in-person meetings and typing corrispondence when seeing to the administrative needs of the organization. People who cannot type well or who experience typing fatigue end up not participating as much. In fact we have lost a number of members as a result of this.
Rocketchat allows someone to send a audio message, but unless the person names it properly the audio message gets buried. Also rocketchat is best for "live" discourse. The organization is more accustomed to the pace of email and forums. These are much more passive forms of communication.
Much of the organization's activity revolves around hosting workshops. This past year has been a struggle. With the pandemic, we have moved towards hosting these workshops virtually. Mostly through Zoom. People being familiar with the platform and also break-out rooms were a deciding factor that lead to adopting zoom. But giving the nature of these activities, many of us wonder about using a LMS like Canvas or Moodle to host workshops or utilize a service like bigbluebutton. In addition to being able host the workshop, we believe this would enable us to more easily archive material. But also, many of these platforms provide the ability for teachers and students to submit audio/video content and responses related to material and classes. Teachers and students benefit from these tools because they help make learning more dynamic, but we also wonder if those tools might be able to help us use audio and video as a part of administrative and planning work. For instance, create a class instance within moodle, and use it much like an organizing forum.
Personally, I am always on the lookout for community/ social platforms that provide the tools to connect and organize around goals. I realize that there is not going to be just one tool, but a collection of tools.
But I would love to hear any ideas people might have about tools that might help.
