Recollective presents participants with numerous opportunities to collaborate and connect as a community. Primarily, this collaboration takes place within either Discussion Topics or Activity Response Streams.
While participants are quick to collaborate within Discussions, the social features available for Activities are sometimes overlooked by both researchers and community participants.
This is likely because thread-based discussion forums have been around for decades now, but in the context of research, activity response streams are often a new concept for researchers and participants.
Inadvertently overlooking response streams is a shame. Doing so is a missed opportunity to socialize as much as possible and, in turn, generate more feedback, especially given the insightful, creative thought that participants tend to contribute within Activities. Drawing more attention to these responses will generate new ideas – ideas that would otherwise be untapped – and will encourage more and better responses.
