Digital engagement – with both domestic and overseas audiences- is very much a new frontier that is still being explored and mapped by governments all over the world.

One such government is that of Vietnam, which is proving that the model of open, direct conversations conducted online can be applied to almost any political system.

E-participation does not replace in-person participation, nor diminish its importance. As a matter of fact, comments made by IG Thematic Amb. Bertrand de la Chappelle at the Geneva launch of the E-diplomacy Initiative have convinced me that not only is this true, but e-participation and remote participation in meetings and conferences is very likely enhancing and improving in-person attendance, and will continue to do so to an even greater extent in the near future.

Thousands of groups meet online or by tele-conference daily, saving not only time and Euros but carbon footprint impact as well. However, my experience shows that public entities often have more difficulty in organising effective remote communication. This is particularly true for large meetings.

Current air traffic interruptions are affecting everyone in some way or other this week. Those who are stranded away from home are feeling the effects most dramatically, but most of us are making adjustments of some kind or other.  Our own e-diplomacy initiative is affected as presenters and organizers for in situ pre-conference events in Washington D.C. and New York are facing travel complications. Fortunately, with our experience in the e-participation, we will simply take advantage of the opportunity to showcase e-tools as a solution.

I was not even in Europe, but I attended the Brussels launch of the e-diplomacy initiative. Not only that, I shared the step-by-step process with our eDiplomat Twitter followers!

E-participation and remote participation in meetings are very important for me, because living in the “interior” of South America can make travel long and complicated. All of us deal with travel, time and other complexities. That doesn’t mean we must miss out on what is going on, or even that we must read a summary of the event, or view a webcast. We can attend and participate.

I seem to digress ... asking again, what is e-participation? What are the different areas of e-participation, and what are tools for e-participation? How can we define and categorise the concepts? Please post your comments so we can refine and define. This is a train-of-thought interactive brainstorming exercise: please join in!

Does anyone have a link to a chart or categorisation strategy?

E-learning is not just "like learning"... it is learning... and so its tools must be appropriate to the knowledge process and knowledge objective. Web 2.0 Twitter, mobile classes and learnlets are wonderful for incidental, short scope learning projects.  But these "short attention span" tools are very different from the investment of time and energy necessary for career training and achievement of long term goals.
