The Online Volunteers will work closely with the General Observers Report (GOR) writing team to ensure continuity and consistency between GOR and website assets, including some light proofreading. In addition, the Online Volunteers will ensure that website content is up to date, well written and accurate. The Online Volunteers will work in a team with other Online Volunteers and members of UNDP Malaysia’s Accelerator Lab and GOR teams, helping prepare COLIN for a public launch alongside GOR, tentatively scheduled for late March/early April 2021. All Online Volunteer contributions will be credited.

    UNDP Malaysia has developed an online platform called MY Collective Intelligence Network (COLIN) to support a whole-of-society approach in: 1) learning from COVID-19 about vulnerabilities and new normals, and 2) building resilience moving forward. As an information platform, COLIN will serve as an interface for collective intelligence, inclusive innovation and joint explorations with various intelligence entities (e.g., think tanks, academia, NGOs and CSOs), especially those working with last-mile, front-line or otherwise vulnerable communities, and/or researching niche and emerging subjects. In the spirit of a “WikiCovid” it may also feature content like solutions snapshots, bite-sized curations, stories, write-ups and briefs, as well as original research, data visualizations and newsfeed collections. The volunteers will help prepare COLIN for a public launch alongside the General Observers Report, tentatively scheduled for late March/early April 2021.
