Corais is the Open Innovation platform created by Faber-Ludens to host Open Design projects from individuals and other organizations. The platform offers collaborative tools like project management, blog, real-time text editing, mind maps, and more.
The platform was designed as part of an ecosystem that will include, in the future, connection to crowdfunding websites, Fab Labs and prototyping tools. Currently, it’s already integrated to Faber-Ludens educational programs.
My role in the project was to conceptualize the ecosystem, manage the community and program the whole infra-structure, based on a customized version of Open Atrium.
In addition to hosting projects, the ecosystem includes a card set with Design Methods made to help planning meetings. Members of the team can organize the cards as a process, using their input/output info. Each card has a QRCode that points to a wiki page where the method is described in details.
