To me, learning how to use MURAL is not about how to add a sticky note to a canvas. It’s about how to transform the way that I work in a collaborative, digital way - regardless if I'm co-located or remote. With this goal in mind, Virtual MURAL Week was born.
Facilitating Remote Sessions in MURAL
Keeping remote teams on track is challenging. The risk of “losing” participants is higher than when working offline. It doesn't take much to derail the entire group.
Facilitators play a critical role in keeping remote collaboration together. They ensure everything runs smoothly and goals are met.
You don't have a be a professional facilitator to lead a distributed group. Step up and be the facilitator in your remote team.
MURAL makes facilitating a whole lot easier. Templates created ahead of time guide the team. During real time sessions, the collaboration features of MURAL engage participants. and you can easily keep the momentum going.
