More and more people are finding themselves working from home or trying to stay in touch with colleagues, volunteers and other creative group organisers remotely. Technology has improved a great deal in recent years to make this easier than ever before, but for those who are unfamiliar with this way of working, it can be difficult to adjust and understand the terminology and the wide range of software and services available.

This Briefing aims to demystify the world of remote working and working from home, including:

  • Telephone conferencing
  • Video conferencing
  • Cloud storage
  • Online collaboration
  • Keeping in touch
  • Keeping safe
  • Tips for working from home

We explain the standard features of commonly used platforms such as Zoom, Skype, Google Drive, Slack and more. Also included are links to more in-depth tutorials for getting set up and getting the best from these services.
