Ushahidi .Ke Evaluation Launch
On the 25th of August,2011, iHub will host the Ushahidi .Ke Evaluation Launch. The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative and Ushahidi are collaborating to build educational tools to help community users. Three toolboxes have been built by and for the community. The Assessment, Implementation, and Output toolboxes are interactive and will allow people to self-assess and evaluate the different stages in using Ushahidi or Crowdmap for their projects.
For more information about the project check out the blog series:
The Ushahidi .ke Evaluation Launch has two goals:
- introduce you to some of the research findings and
- give you a chance to interact and shape the content.
Help is needed to test Ushahidi toolboxes. Your feedback will help Ushahidi users in Kenya and around the world.
