21 Luxemburg 28 January 2013 European Commission – DG CONNECT GaLA Game and Learning Alliance The European Network of Excellence on Serious Games D4.19 Stakeholders community building

22 Luxemburg 28 January 2013 European Commission – DG CONNECT D4.19 Stakeholders community building Stakeholders participation in GALA communities GALA communities facilities Strategies to foster community building –Contents strategy- Serious Game Society membership Community governance Next steps

23 Luxemburg 28 January 2013 European Commission – DG CONNECT Serious Game Society Stakeholders participation in GALA There are not 4 (or 5) GALA communities but rather one GALA community that comprises a number of different sub-groups or sub-communities. Serious Games Society will ensure the sustainability of GALA efforts. Stakeholders Industry SG developers SG Users Academy Learners Teachers/ Researchers Policy makers WP4 – Industry Games Creators WP5 Academy WP6 Academy Professors WP7 Industry Games Users WP3 - Analysis Domain WP2- Technological Topics WP1 Strategic Coordination WP8 Living labs, Tools and services WP9 Dissemination

24 Luxemburg 28 January 2013 European Commission – DG CONNECT GALA Online communities Facilities to offer: Access management: –Single sign-on for all services/facilities –Easy and direct access to all facilities independently of entry point –Different users profiles (Clear and partial separation between buyers and sellers – curated joining ) Access facility to latest (scientific) papers/reports about SG Access and integration with other communities/social networking websites related to SG inside or outside GaLA (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, specialist academic networks: List included in Section 5.4, D4.19) Management of sections News/Events/Blogging of the Serious Games Academy Serious Games Knowledge Management System (Catalogue) Serious Games Job market section Directory of SG Companies (under feasibility assessment) SIGS dedicated and public spaces in GALA website Instruments to verify motivation achievement: Statistics of visitors/contents visualization/ functionality access, Satisfaction surveys, Network Analysis tools

25 Luxemburg 28 January 2013 European Commission – DG CONNECT Strategies to foster community building If we want to attract and keep new users involved, they should find a great online space containing: great overview (mission, vision, objectives, how to get involved) great contents (papers, links to Serious Games and demos, SG catalogue, CVs, job opportunities, directory of SG companies) great opportunities to contribute (easy forms to upload information, repositories). Overview strategy: Clear statements about mission, vision, how to get involved in SGS, the SG Academy, and the GaLA website (work in progress). Content strategy Dissemination strategy ( in close collaboration with WP9) 25

26 Luxemburg 28 January 2013 European Commission – DG CONNECT Strategies to foster community building Contents strategy: Heavy contributions (within GALA consortium): –Start with a contact list of people that are experts and passionate about serious games - really collaborative people with time allocated for this task within the GaLA consortium –Join a group of at least people (1 or 2 per partner) with at least 4 monthly contributions. These contributions must belong to at least 4 different categories that can be chosen from the following: blog entries, uploading CV, create a job opportunity, create an entry of a serious game, create an entry of a SG enterprise, upload a paper to a repository –10 selected contributors will do at least 4 weekly contributions –This calendar of contributions should continue at least until the end of the project (2+ years). –A moderator (the Community Manager) will check that the contribution is progressing as accorded. Intermittent contribution motivation ( Serious Games Society members): –Promote your brand in the SG community –Showcase your organization’s products and activities in the SG community –Be visible and active in the SG think tanks as an organization –Get scale discounts for the SGS publications, events and services In addition to proposed membership benefits provide additional advantages to contributors: –A year free membership –Earning points of free days/months of SGS membership when participant upload contributions to more than one of the content categories 26

27 Luxemburg 28 January 2013 European Commission – DG CONNECT Strategies to foster community building Dissemination strategy: The community should not be promoted until it has interesting contents. It is vital to ensure that visitors want to return! Assign a country representative for the Community. Community will work in English, translations are not needed, but a representative in each country will be crucial for national dissemination actions –DE –BIBA –NL –Delft –FR –ORT –IT –Genoa –UK –Coventry –ES –ATOS –PO –INESC-ID Redesign or adapt the pack of advantages already done for SGS for each target group ( e.g.the alternative of earning free membership time from “contributor points”). Consider the most updated list of events in WP9 to be attended taking special care in reaching all target stakeholders groups. Prepare dissemination materials with references to the community (other networks, multichannel awareness, word of mouth, interviews, presentations in relevant events, blogs, podcasts, videos) Promote the community 27
