Susan Kistler on Wallwisher, Your Free Online Bulletin Board

My name is Susan Kistler, aea365’s usual Saturday contributor and guest weekday post provider this week on new tech tools. Have you ever found something that was just really cool but you aren’t quite sure how to make the most of it?

Rad Resource – Wallwisher: Wallwisher allows you to create a free online virtual bulletin board where others may post notes. I have embedded an example below, asking for your feedback on aea365. Please go ahead and add a note to see how it works (and to tell us what you think of or would like to see on aea365). You can use the boards on the wallwisher site or embed them in other websites. This is another one of those tools that you may need to click through to aea365 to try out if you are receiving this via email.

It takes fewer than 30 seconds to set up your wall – you select a URL, indicate who can see the wall, note if you want to approve posts (potentially a good idea on a public bulletin board), and select a theme. Tah dah! Your wall is good to go.

Hot Tip: How might evaluators use the tool? I’m hoping that you have great ideas to share. You can use it to post informal feedback, or even in real time perhaps during a phone-based planning meeting for a group to post ideas.

Do you have questions, concerns, kudos, or content to extend this aea365 contribution? Please add them in the comments section for this post on the aea365 webpage so that we may enrich our community of practice. Would you like to submit an aea365 Tip? Please send a note of interest to aea365 is sponsored by the American Evaluation Association and provides a Tip-a-Day by and for evaluators.

  1. What a great idea! I’d envision using the wall for anonymous feedback from a leadership or participant group in a project. It would be a nice way to get informal feedback at different stages of the project.

    It would also be useful in the early stages of writing a proposal for a project or writing up final reports. People could make suggestions and additions easily and without passing around lots of emails. Another advantage would be that you could organize them on the wall as you go!
