How does it work?
The OpenSpace-Online® Real-Time Technology is a high encoded (448 Bit) Internet conferencing system that makes it possible to run single and/or simultaneous real-time meetings and conference for 5 to 125 persons. Neither organizers nor participants are required to have prior knowledge about the method or technical expertise. In order to take part users only need to be interested in the conference theme. Participants use a basic Internet connection on a standard computer that has been loaded with the easy to use OpenSpace-Online® Real-Time Conference Software.
Pure self-driven process based on passion and responsibility
The virtually-facilitated, text-based Internet methodology guides all participants through successive phases as follows: opening circle, creating a shared agenda, discussing topics in various sessions, café talks and private one-to-one conversations, summarizing the topic sessions, prioritizing topics and planning for next actions or steps, and closing circle. No external online moderator is needed because the virtual open space facilitator COMOSO (see below) guides all participants through the graphically beautiful, highly intuitive real-time conference which last in average 3 to 4 hours. The participants themselves are the experts who bring shared interests in the theme, knowledge about various topics, and ideas for new solutions. Basis of this, from young and old very easy to use conferencing software is a highly complex methodical architecture in the back, which ensures that each participant can participate completely intuitive and independent phase by phase WITHOUT the lead and/or the intervention of human on-line moderators during the real-time process.
