The online tutorials and have been created by inhouse by Co-op Colleagues and volunteers so you can watch it from anywhere and any device that supports Youtube. You will be invited to participate through the email you receive from our Communities team and through our Co-op Communities Facebook Group
- Join our Co-op Communities Facebook Group, go to the events section and join the next Facebook event to receive reminders of upcoming online tutorials. Make sure to join the conversation in the Facebook Group afterward so we can continue the conversation
- Subscribe to Co-op’s YouTube channel and make sure you are logged in on the day, so you can ask the experts questions in the live chat and share your own skills. If you are not logged into your YouTube account you can still watch the live stream but you won’t be able to participate with the community and help others in the comment section of the stream
- Share your own skills in the Co-op Communities Facebook Group, whether you have great tips for using social media or can simply provide advice to inspire people wanting to make great things happen in their community
We encourage you to participate in the live streamed events for your chance to ask our experts questions there and then and to help other community members with their questions. If you can’t make it join our Co-op Communities Facebook Group where we will be continuing the conversation. If you miss a tutorial don’t worry, the live stream will be added to our YouTube playlist the following day.
