How to use this checklist[edit | edit source]

This is a list of suggested resources to be expected when working with external organizations in order to deploy activities on the Appropedia platform. These materials contribute to shorten the learning curve for new users, adequately categorize the information provided by participants and lay the foundation for future collaborations.

Please note that these are general guidelines and every project must be assessed in an individual basis to prepare adequate resources.

Resource Creation Stages[edit | edit source]

In order to structure the project as clearly as possible, we suggest generating all needed resources under the following stages. Make sure to generate or adapt them (if they already exist) before proceeding to the next creation stage. To create these resources, additional and materials provided by the organizations, participants and Appropedia may be needed and is listed as such.

Not all of these resources will be necessary for all projects: only generate those that are better aligned to the main activity.

Project documentation
