The Coral Project is creating open-source tools and resources for publishers of all sizes to build better communities around their journalism. It also collects, supports and shares practices, tools, and studies to improve communities on the web. The Coral Project is a collaboration between the Mozilla Foundation, The New York Times and The Washington Post, and is funded by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
The session will provide an overview of the project's most recent apps (which will be available to any publisher for free), will consider what has been learnt through nearly two years of discussions with publishers, will ask those in attendance to talk about their challenges in managing UGC, and will discuss the project's product roadmap. The results of this discussion would go back to the Coral Project team and would likely influence upcoming product decisions.
The two session speakers, Greg and Marc, are members of the Coral Project team.
