An outline of tools used to support the Global OB Network.


  • Skype - In order to enable free telephony between OB staff around the world.
  • LinkedIn - In order to enable staff to indicate who they know in the network and their career trajectory.
  • Google Groups - Behind the wiki we are encouraging people to join google groups for specific skill sets within OB in order to share expertise.
  • Facebook - In order to build friendships and active social community.
  • In the United States, the Outward Bound Online Communityconnects staff, supporters, and Alumni, and alerts users about local events and service opportunities.


(not yet rolled out)

  • Open Office - As a free alternative to Microsoft word applications.
  • del.icio.us - to allow people to tag web content associated with OB in such a way others can see it.
  • RSS Reader: NetvibesWe are recommending this so that users can consolidate and filter OB content on their own page.
