 GNOSS guide for... including GNOSS in your web site

The GNOSS widget lets you take content of the GNOSS communities to the websites of users and people interested in the information shared on the net. How does it work?
 
1. Enter the GNOSS community that you want to see on your website. In the ‘I want to’ menú you’ll find the option ‘Create a widget’. Click on it and you’ll go to the settings page.
 
2. The page shows you four options: number of resources, width, code and preview.
Number of resources: You may include a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 resources of the choosen community. These contents are the latest ones that have been uploaded to the community. If you want to see how they’ll be shown, take a look at this picture of the ‘Preview’. In this way, you can define the appearance of GNOSS on your web.
Width: The widget can have a width between 220 and 650 pixels. Like with the number of resources, you have a preview to see the result.
Code: the text box gives you the code you need to paste into your website so that GNOSS adds contents. Copy and paste, so easy.
Preview: it offers the look you’ve defined for your widget. As you can see, the header displays the logo and title in your community. From there, you have a resource list and a widget footer that lets you keep surfing more resources of the community.
 
 
3. As an appetizer, we’ll show you examples of GNOSS widget integrations

The Asociación de Empresas Riojanas TIC, AERTIC (ICT Companies Association of La Rioja) considered the possibility of offering its members updated contents with information about the sector. To do so, it changed the widget of its GNOSS community and expanded its size to fit the structure of its website. In this way, visitors of AERTIC web can now have a bulletin board with the constant updating that the GNOSS community enables.
 
 
 
The blog 'Ideas Aumentadas' offers a very interesting and comprehensive content on ‘marketing’. Its creator is responsible for two GNOSS communities: Branding and Marketing Aumentado. In them, he and other GNOSS users share information on these two issues. The blog offered the chance to edit a column to include more comments. At that point, the GNOSS widget has become an excellent complement to the blog entries: it enriches the blog with new contents, shows updated information and links to the GNOSS communities.

GNOSS guide for... discovering GNOSS in ten steps

We are a little insistent, we know, but ... we want to make it very easy for you. If you’ve just signed up for GNOSS, you may have questions about what content and services you have in our network. Therefore, we offer you a guide to take your first steps in GNOSS.
  1. Surf freely and find out interesting content: GNOSS users are grouped into communities where they share information that they consider relevant or featured on a particular subject. For example, community Innova is a virtual space for scientists, researchers, technicians, entrepreneurs, managers... who want to work together to create a knowledge base with quality content on innovation. In this virtual space, you can discover and enjoy new and interesting content. You can access the list of all GNOSS communities and surf freely the most suited to your concerns and interests.
  2. Sign up: If you like the content you’ve seen in GNOSS and you feel that you also can contribute interesting and useful information to communities, we recommend that you sign up for GNOSS. As well as see the contents, you can share, comment, add your own resources to communities that are of your interest and, most important, interact with people who share the same interests as you.
  3. Share content: the base of the GNOSS communities is collaborative and participatory work of its members. Surely you appreciate the work of people who have shared and described the information that have interested you. This is a work that produces many benefits for all. So can you collaborate too. How? The easiest way is to share resources (content and information) in communities. A resource is a webpage, a PDF, an Excel spreadsheet, a PowerPoint presentation... that you want to be heard and used by other people and that you think fits with the purpose of a community. When you have joined a community, you can include these files very easily from 'Add a new resource'. For each of these resources you’ll have to put a title, a description, some tags (these are the concepts that the information you share suggests you) and make an association to the community categories. If you want to go a little further, comment other people resources, send links to your contacts, talk (we’ll tell you a bit more about this later).
  4. Upload information from your browser, Office suite or Windows: to make your work easier in GNOSS, we offer a selection of tools to share the resources you like the most from wherever you want.For example, if you think that the text document you are working on is interesting, you can upload it directly from Word to GNOSS clicking a tab.
  5. Find: in GNOSS you can look for people, organizations and resources thanks to its search tools. GNOSS allows simple and advanced searches, through the tags of people, organizations and resources, and also navigate through the elements of the categories index. Warning! GNOSS is a semantic web, which means that their systems are able to interpret or ‘understand’ the information of the documents it contains. That will help you to find what you really want in a more intuitive and personalized way.
  6. Invite your workmates and friends to join GNOSS: your interests can be very similar to those of people in your personal or professional environment. Therefore, you might want them to access the GNOSS communities and contents. You can invite them to GNOSS. Their contributions will enrich the quality and value of information and content that interest you most.
  7. Create your own communities: after having navigated through the GNOSS communities you may have identified areas without a proposed virtual space. This is your opportunity to lead, bring relevance and popularity to the content you are most attracted to. You can create and manage a community on the topic you want. Besides, you have the option of selecting the privacy level you want for your content: from maintaining the maximum confidentiality to selecting the maximum visibility in the network. GNOSS allows to create communities with the degree of privacy that is needed: private room, private, restricted access and public communities.
  8. Contact and talk with people who share your interests: Get involved with GNOSS because people and organizations (corporations, associations ...) can make contacts and friends based on their interests. GNOSS provides an internal messaging service to connect with people you choose. In addition, resources can be commented to discuss on the GNOSS contents and information.
  9. Create your curriculum vitae and your virtual hard disk (your computer on the network?): Your digital identity is important. Have you ever thought about why in the offline world you can introduce yourself at each place in the most appropriate way, while in the world of other social networks you can only be one forever? With GNOSS you can overcome these limitations and show yourself in every GNOSS community and elsewhere on the network as you consider suitable. GNOSS allows you to generate and manage different identities from a unified space. Think about it. GNOSS gives you the option of posting your curriculum vitae on the internet with an advantage over other services: you can develop as many identities as you want (it is not the same to submit your curriculum vitae in different contexts). Also, as a GNOSS user, you can have a personal space for resources to save your files. You’ll have access to them from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. For your security, GNOSS lets you choose what information you make public (and thereby helping to build your digital reputation) and what you keep private.
  10. Work collaboratively on your projects. GNOSS has a document manager tool that allows multiple users to work together in a document, either as wikis, or as resources that have several editors and readers. This facilitates the development of a project, a scientific paper or a research report. With these tools you can create versions of a document and save its history: you can do everything a good document management application enables and always on the net!

GNOSS guide for… social networks from GNOSS
 
If you want, GNOSS may be the panel to organize your digital identity on the Net. We want to make the work easier for you, that’s why we’re adapting to your interests. GNOSS lets you share  the resources you choose with the most important social networks.  
 
When you go to the resources of a community, GNOSS gives you the option to export those contents to another network. Under the resource tags, you will find a row with the icons of the most important bookmarking services and networks (we accept more proposals, let us know your suggestions). Now, GNOSS connects with Facebook, LinkedIn, Delicious, Reddit and Negóciame.
 
For Twitter, we’ll explain more options to you:
  • Personal ‘tweets’: it enables you to write ‘tweets’ from GNOSS. To do that, go to ‘Edit profile’ in your profile (the personal or the organization one, if you are an administrator). On that page you will find an option that says ‘I have a Twitter account’. Click on it and enter your user name. Twitter will ask you for your password later. Since then, you will be able to send your ‘tweets’ from GNOSS.
    To use this new service, click on ‘Tweet' from your ‘I want to...’ menu. A text box will appear and there you can type in what you want and continue the conversation with your Twitter contacts.
  • ‘Tweets’ of a community: the microblogging service has become a media to communicate in an efficient and direct way. GNOSS offers you a new option: you can automatically broadcast on Twitter all your GNOSS community content. Each time you upload a resource you will see a ‘tweet’ with the file title, internet address… you have uploaded to GNOSS. The message will be completed with the hashtag you’ve chosen previously for your community. To activate your Twitter channel, you have to go to the ‘I want to’ menu, click on ‘Manage the community’ and then go to the ‘Utilities’ tab. Here you will find the option ‘Activate Twitter account’. The microblogging service will ask you for the username and password that you registered on Twitter previously.
  • User profile on Twitter:Our new application lets you see the profile of a user on Twitter. To do this, go to 'People and Organizations' and look for the person you want to find. Once found, go to his profile. If he has enabled his Twitter account in GNOSS, next to his biography you will see an option to 'Follow me on Twitter'.

GNOSS guide for... entrepreneurs

Consultancies, finantial grants, subsidies ... Starting a business project seems a simple way according to a wide range of information sources. However, only the professional who risks knows the difficulty and needs for more specific guidance. In GNOSS he can find a partner on his way to generate business.
 
Information for the entrepreneur     
The GNOSS user that has consider starting a personal project os has just launched a business proposal to the market has available several sources to help him get information and even make decisions. The list of GNOSS communities has some specialized spaces to share and view resources:
  • Emprendedores (Entrepreneurs): a digital meeting space designed to connect the mind and the knowledge of professionals who have tested their talents to start a new business and need inspiration, judgment and support.
  • Empresa Familiar (Family Business): community that enables the exchange of information, experiences and knowledge about all aspects concerning the family business.
  • Expopyme: virtual space that provides resources on Expopyme, the most important event in Spain in terms of SMEs.
Another option is to create a new community with a specialty in which your company develops its activity or is about to start business. Example: Your business is dedicated to emerging public relations online. You can create your own virtual space with a thematic community dedicated to this specialty including resources and sources of quality which deal with and deepen on the field of public relations. You can upload your reports, opinion columns, featured posts...
What’s this space for? It is an excellent business card for the entrepreneur user: it shares quality information and, at the same time, builds a digital reputation that can open him doors in his industry. On the other hand, it attracts talent and professionals related to that field.
And another proposal: If you are looking for funding, why don’t you create a community to manage the relationships with potential investors? GNOSS provides the privacy you require.
 
Organization as a user   
GNOSS allows the user to sign up as an organization. With this option, the entrepreneur can have a website in which he presents and shows his products to all the users. In addition, GNOSS lets you create your own intranet and manage your own hard disk on the Net.
With the organization user, the entrepreneur can make contacts with other professionals who participate in GNOSS and share their concerns.

 

Do you need skilled professionals?
GNOSS can also be very useful to find people for your new business staff. In the tab ‘People and organizations’ you have the option to do a specific search in the areas and sectors related to your activity.
From ‘Search options’ you have the possibility of finding profiles based on your interests (communities) and even the geographic location of GNOSS users who have chosen to be visible. Example: you’re looking for a professional with expertise in media. If you access the drop-down search menu, you can find some communities related to journalism. For example, select ‘Next Media’ and look for profiles that may interest you by adding a geographical location and, if you want, a more specific specialization such as ‘corporate communications’.

GNOSS guide for… teachers
Education and new ways of learning are major concepts in the GNOSS communities. Teachers in schools, high schools and vocational schools can find out and share the latest trends and ideas in the education field. Besides, the digital identity project and the various applications in the GNOSS communities can be very useful for the educational activity.


A discussion place to find new ways of learning
GNOSS is a social network where users share information in thematic communities. Teachers can enjoy several communities that have been promoted by GNOSS with very interesting content according to their specialty. They offer information regarding the latest trends and news in education:

In these communities, apart from sharing resources, teachers can participate in the discussion developed around the uploaded information and files. You can even evaluate them, according to the certification policy that the ‘community manager’ has determined.
The teacher has the option of requesting as many communities as he/she wants and giving them different applications. It will always have an added value, since it allows the privacy level that you demand: from maximum public exposure to the total confidence. Possible uses?

  • Virtual classroom: a site to upload the contents of a subject and generate discussion with students.
  • Management of private or group projects (student work, contests ...)
  • Community on a specific topic you want to lead. Example: e-learning in adult education.

Web and virtual hard disk
The teaching staff can enjoy the possibilites of the GNOSS ‘corporate mode’. By signing up as an organization, a school or a high school has the option to edit its history and show, for example, a description of what services it provides or what activities can be developed at their facilities. That is, it can work as a web page or portfolio of the center.
But the options that GNOSS offers don’t stop there: the user in corporate mode has the capacity to create a virtual hard disk that can store all kinds of documents in private, or show them to the public if desired. For instance, it’s interesting to show internet users a pdf file with all the out-of-school activities in the center. However, the confidential documents, as the minutes of a meeting, may have its place in the space for private resources.
It will be the school, as corporate user, who will decide what contacts can acess and participate in its resources as editors or simply readers. So, GNOSS could work as an intranet for the teaching staff.

GNOSS guide for... a SME 2.0

Small and medium enterprises have needs for communication and management that environments 2.0 can meet with easy and effective models. GNOSS offers a set of tools and services to improve the competitiveness of SMEs and make their presence on the Net to generate conversation and business.

Web for the company
GNOSS offers the SME something more than a company website. It gives you the opportunity to participate in Web 2.0 by creating a community. This service allows you to have internet presence, build conversation and promote relationships.
 
Corporative communication
A GNOSS community is a very powerful tool to attract and retain new clients online. The community of an SME allows flexible and dynamic conversation and relationship with its clients and users. Never had a company been closer to its target public. Thanks to the GNOSS communities, a SME can use a powerful communication channel to present their new products, product catalog, corporate updates, news...
People who consume their products or services have a meeting space in the SME’s community in GNOSS. There, they can comment, make suggestions, send messages, value services... The SME is approaching its target and, in turn, it’s feeding on the information it obtains. It could even offer special deals for participating on its network.
 
Communication is complemented by more services:
  • An enterprise can have its own blogging service in GNOSS.
  • In GNOSS we believe in the connection between social networks. An example is the implementation of a service that allows the company to show its GNOSS resources on Twitter.
  • Visibility on the Internet. The semantic technology developed by GNOSS provides companies having GNOSS communities a good search engine positioning. Thus, when a potential client makes a specific search for a product, the company participating in GNOSS will have many chances of appearing at the top results.

Intranet and hard disk

GNOSS provides the company with a digital identity on the Internet. A SME works as an ‘organization user’ in GNOSS. What does this mean? In GNOSS you can interact as a person or as an organization. A company is an ‘organization user’ that includes, if desired, workers who are registered in GNOSS. This way, it can develop its internal network or intranet, where the company can work and communicate with their employees. This provides several advantages:

The documentation that a company manages is subject to changes, revisions and verifications. Document management needs processes to speed up the development and evolution of the material. Usually e-mails, USB sticks, CDs, attachments… contain the required information to prepare a project but are subject to/have some risks... What company hasn’t lost any documents, used outdated files or suffered a breach of confidentiality in a project? GNOSS works as a virtual hard disk and solves these problems with its document management system.

A company can work collaborativelly on its projects within a community. There, the roles with the responsibilities of its members are defined, depending on what the SME decides. The company will have one or more users responsible for the community who will make a decision on who can see and edit their documents. The enterprise controls the entire management process.

What are the advantages of the GNOSS document management?

  • The documents are never lost and are accessible from anywhere in the world that has internet access. One just needs GNOSS username and password.
  • There is a privacy level determined by people responsible for the organization account. Only the people they want can see the projects; only the people participating in them can work on it.
  • Two or more members of a company can work on a project at the same time. GNOSS protects the documents and prevents lost or overlap.
  • You can follow the history of a project. The communities show the  history of a document. 
Search for professionals
GNOSS gives the user the possibility of creating its own curriculum vitae on the net. This is an augmented profile: besides the biography it offers a virtual hard disk that can show reports, documents, thesis ... that the user wants to make available to internauts. It is your best presentation as an applicant for a job.

GNOSS is a very useful tool for finding interesting professional profiles. On a first visit, a recruiter can surf GNOSS and see what thematic areas or communities he is interested in. He can also make a detailed search on specific specialties or fields on which he intends to find professional profiles. GNOSS guarantees do discreetly, since the recruiter has the option of remaining ‘invisible’ to maintain discretion in their operations.
GNOSS allows him to follow both users interesting for a possible job and topics to find an expert or a certain profile. It’s possible thanks to its email notification system.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
The period to assess the SWOT analysis has finished. The manager and editors can work to unify and analyze the opinions of the community members.
To do this, they have to follow a few steps:
 
Selection criteria
The editors set out a text with the statistical criteria that lead them to determine the conclusions and the selection of ‘winning’ and linked factors.
 
Selection and linking of factors
Each factor has different rates depending on how many people and what they voted on the value scale (from ‘In disagreement’ to ‘Total agree’. The tab ‘+’ offers a detailed display with the data. Depending on the 'Criteria' established by the manager and editors, the factors can be selected (these factors are the 'winners') and linked (maybe two or more winning factors are very similar and can be linked as a single factor). To select or link, you have to click in the ‘check’ of the factors you determine. Your selection will be automatically saved.
The factors voted during the performance of the SWOT analysis have a graphic expression as quartiles. Its image allows a quick statistical analysis to get conclusions.
 
Conclusions
Text with the presentation of the conclusions reached after analyzing the SWOT factors.
When the editor or editors have finished their analysis and unification, users will receive an email inviting them to visit the completed SWOT analysis..
 
Do you want to create a SWOT analysis?
To propose a SWOT analysis, you have to enter your community and go to the tab 'Collective thinking'. There you will find the button 'Create swot'. If that tab is not available in your community toolbar, the manager may request it to GNOSS
If you want to see all SWOT analyses you’re taking in, either as a manager, editor or participant, you have a shortcut to ‘My SWOT’ in your dropdown menu (the personal or the corporate one) that will take you to a webpage with your swot list and their state.
You can get more information about the SWOT tool in the GNOSS guide for… performing a SWOT analysis.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
This phase is the assessment or answer to the SWOT. Participants vote the factors proposed as weaknesses/threats/ strengths/opportunities in the following scale: 
In disagreement/ Not agree at all / Little agree / Agree/ Total agree
Also, they can add new factors to the proposal, so that the other participants and editors can assess more ideas.
In turn, if the SWOT manager has determined that the SWOT assessments are private, only the voting scale and how many people voted will be shown. However, if you have enabled the votes to be public, participants and publishers will see the average.
The GNOSS SWOT analyses allow the conversation on the issues that participants consider appropriate: they can comment every factor.
The votes are automatically saved and the user can change his vote to a factor while the voting period is open. The participant will receive an alert the day before the closing date and the last day of the SWOT assessment period.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis

 

 
 We recommend that you prepare the SWOT analysis factors after having completed the 'General options'. You must complete two fields:
 
Introduction
In this brief text you show what is to be read on the weaknesses/threats/strengths/opportunities of your SWOT analysis. By default, you have a standard text that you can change if you want.
 
Add new  weaknesses, threatens, strengths and opportunities:
It is the enumeration of concepts in each section. You can include as many as you want. A control activated in the upper left side of each of them allows you to put them in the order you prefer.
This process is similar for the four SWOT tabs. They have different colors (just under 'Factors'). To facilitate your work, the tab on which you are including the factors is highlighted.
When you're done with the ‘General options’ and the 'Factors', click on 'Publish'. Note that, at that time, you cannot go back and the process of assessing your SWOT starts... until the selected deadline.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
The GNOSS swot is a collective thinking tool that the participants of a community use to analyze and expresses their opinions about an actor, a product or an entity in a social context. If you have decided to create a swot in GNOSS, we offer you some advice to take this step without difficulties:
 
In the ‘Title’ you can point out the key concept your SWOT analysis is about. You must do it in a clear and direct way, with few words. A practical way to know if your proposal works is this: if a contact asks “What does your SWOT analyze?”, the name you have chosen should be sufficient to understand the content.
 
The ‘Description’ sums up the goal of the SWOT analysis. We suggest that you use two or three suggestive concepts that describe the content of your proposal. From there, show who you are addressing to and what you expect of them. Another option is to launch the juiciest and most controversial issues of your SWOT in your description. You can extend as much as you want, but anyway we recommend that first paragraph reflects the essence of your SWOT analysis.
 
The next step to create a SWOT is selecting the ‘Tags’ to describe their content. They are the common concepts or keywords that identify the contents of your SWOT analysis. Think about this: a good tagging makes it easier and faster to find content when someone searches it. We recommend selecting at least ten concepts adequate to describe your SWOT analysis. After tagging, select the categories of the community in which the SWOT analysis you’re proposing fits.
 
Once you have described, tagged and categorized your SWOT analysis, star the selection of people you want to think and analyze with you. You have to choose the participants and the editors of th SWOT analysis. For that, we offer a drop-down menu with the members of your community. Make your selection. The difference between an editor and a participant is that the first on, apart from assessing and voting, can also participate in the process of unifying factors.
The SWOT manager selects if the analysis is visible to the SWOT participants, the community members, the GNOSS users or all internauts.
 
On the other hand, GNOSS allows the manager to choose the privacy of the SWOT analysis participants. By default, the tool enables an option that does not show the identity of the participants. If the editor deems it appropriate, their identity will be made public. GNOSS sends an automatic alert (email) so that the SWOT participant knows that his identity will be public during the vote. Then he has the possibility to leave the SWOT or continue in it, as he considers appropriate. The manager may also determine if the SWOT votes are public or private.
Finally, the manager has to define until what date you can participate in the SWOT analysis. The limit is the end of the chosen day (23:59 h). GNOSS sends automatic alerts a day before the end of the process and the same day it ends.
After closing the 'General options', the manager must write the 'Factors'.
 
Do you want to create a SWOT analysis?
To propose a SWOT analysis, you have to enter your community and go to the tab 'Collective thinking'. There you will find the button 'Create swot'. If that tab is not available in your community toolbar, the manager may request it to GNOSS
