What is Nimbus?
Nimbus is a social networking site developed by Schoolwires that we will be using as a professional learning network for the NASTECH group.
Why are we using this?
The Nimbus site will allow for greater collaboration and sharing among the NASTECH group.
What can I do on the Nimbus site?
Post and reply to Discussions from the group
Add Wall Posts to share short notices and information
Send Messages to anyone or everyone in the group
Create a Poll
Add photos (i.e. district events, conferences) to Albums
Create a Project Team to collaborate with selected colleagues
Add events to the Calendar
Post and access files to the Work Area
Develop your own personal dashboard and file storage space
Will I receive email notifications when new information is posted to the Nimbus site?
Yes, you can sign up to receive notifications for whatever type of events you decide (i.e. Discussions, Polls, Wall Posts, etc.)
How do I access the site?
Each NASTECH member will be provided a log in to access the site. The district Director of Technology or other authorized NASTECH representative will determine which district staff should be afforded access. Everyone on the NASTECH listserv as of March 2012 was set up with an account.
Can I still use the NASTECH listserv?
Yes. The listserv is still a great resource for getting quick feedback from the group such as vendor recommendations, or for sharing information.
