This would be helpful. I think a series of short videos could be great -- impactful and easily transported to other places. Maybe...
'Ariba Exchange Basics' - purpose, policies
'How-Tos' - register (completing key part of the profile), post, monitor, participate
Then maybe we move on to a series that addresses the potential by department.
I also think this would be valuable. It definitely should be a rules of the road, type of blogging basics guide. Doesn't need to be too in depth, but more of a tool to help users think about how they obtain and provide value tothe exchange.
Encourage the 2 way knowledge transfer.
FYI, we're going to try shooting a couple of intro videos for Exchange next week.
A few of the basics I think we should cover are:
- Structure - how the site is set up w/ subcommunities for solutions and commodity/category. And talk about the Groups. What they are, where to find them and how they'll help.
- Contributing - how do you get engaged via discussions, polls, comments, bookmarks, etc
- Subscribing - I think this is key to getting the information (and only the information) you want
Anything else? What else would help new users get started and quickly find value in the Exchange?
