NetHope Collaboration Network (Yammer)


The NetHope Collaboration Network (NCN), powered by Yammer, is a great way to establish a community and collaborate around a particular topic or interest. They can be an adjunct to in-person meetings, or completely virtual. They can be for NetHope members only, or for the community at large. You can make them private (admins have to approve new members) or open to any Yammer user. Users can post on the Yammer site, or interact exclusively through email. They are flexible and powerful, and a great way to establish and maintain collaboration with colleagues around the world and throughout the year.

Joining the network is easy. Start by going to the NetHope External Network (we also have an Internal Network since we use Office365, as do many of you). If you have an account already on this network, just log in - otherwise, enter your work email (only member email domains are allowed), and follow the prompts. Be sure to fill in your profile - we all want to know more about who we're collaborating with! Once you're in, you can sign up for groups - be sure to select "Subscribe to this group by email" option at the bottom right:

See the Users Guide for a more detailed overview of how NCN will work.

Below is a list of the current groups in the network. If you'd like to know more about how to start a new group, we’ve put together this management guidelines and checklists page to help you “GET READY”.
