Project activities

Welcome to your project's activities

This section of the TwinSpace is where you will find the online collaborative workspaces (activities).

Each activity includes a selection of applications (blog, file archive, forum, image gallery, wiki or web content). These are selected by the administrator.

Included in each new TwinSpace is a sample activity "Introduce yourself". This includes a forum and a file archive. It is an ideal place for project members to introduce themselves and get to know each other.
