eCYBERMISSION Discussion Forums and Team Talk Chatroom Guidance

As Team Advisors and students begin to explore the various resources on the eCYBERMISSION web site, eCYBERMISSION encourages teams to utilize the Discussion Forums and Team Talk Chat sessions.


Throughout the process of moving to a new, improved web site, there have been some changes to the Discussion Forums. For the 2009-2010 competition, participants will find several discussion opportunities to participate in.


General Discussion Forums – There are several public Discussion Forums on the eCYBERMISSION web site, including: CyberGuide Chats, Team Advisor’s Forum, Mission Challenge Forums and a Social Forum.

Team Discussion Forums – Team Discussion Forums are PUBLIC forums, viewable by all registered eCYBERMISSION participants. While these forums are exclusively for a specific team to utilize, they are still public.

Team Advisors must request a Team Discussion Forum; it will not be automatically set up for each team. This is a change from previous years.

• Team Talk Chat - To participate in a private, password-protected chat, contact Mission Control at missioncontrol@ecybermission.com. Teams will need to provide the team name and the approved usernames for the chat room. In addition, teams will need to provide the password the team will use to access the private team chat.


eCYBERMISSION understands that teams may want a private Discussion Forum to communicate with each other on each team member’s own time. While we only provide a password protected chat session, there are several free and easy discussion forums on the web that you can set up for your team. Examples include, but are not limited to:

Groups.google.com
Myfreeforum.org
Freeboards.net
Proboards.com

For more information contact Mission Control. Good luck!
