Activity Types
Communities

(This page is under construction. Please contact us for more information.)

In the Shiftup programs, we support different activity types. For example:

Live Meetup (Organizer / Presenter / Attendee)
A live get-together (online or collocated) where people discuss a topic together. (Note: live meetups have a scheduled date/time. Recorded meetups are a separate activity type. In meetups, all attendees can participate. When only the presenter is on screen, it counts as a webinar. It is also not a meetup when it’s a live talk as part of a larger event. Finally, slide desks sit in the presentations category.)

Recorded Meetup (Organizer / Presenter / Viewer)
A recorded get-together (online or collocated) where people discuss a topic together. (Note: recorded meetups must have a video available. Live meetups are a separate activity type. When only the presenter is on screen, it counts as a webinar. It is also not a meetup when it’s a live talk as part of a larger event. Finally, slide desks sit in the presentations category.)

Lean Coffee (Organizer / Attendee)
A live get-together (online or collocated) that used the Lean Coffee approach. (Note: lean coffees are not recorded and they have no presenter. Note: When a lean coffee is part of a workshop, it sits in the workshop category.)

Submit a meetup!
(Live or Recorded)

Explorer members can submit community meetups and lean coffees for inclusion in our events calendar and activity database. That means those who attend the meetup (or watch the recorded version) will earn points toward program completion and earning their next diploma!
