On Tuesday, 15 June, the Tawasol Website was launched by the NUI Galway’s Deputy President and Registrar, Professor Jim Ward. The website, www.tawasol.org was designed and developed by a Galway based web application and animation company, Starlight Solutions, who have used a system of social networking to bring the Tawasol Project members together through group sharing, interacting and engaging.
The website will support social collaboration between the partners and will in time become a repository of knowledge for civic engagement and service learning. The philosophy behind the website is that the process of contributing content should be open to all. This in turn will encourage people from the partner institutions to collaborate online.
