Fabo Community Events

Build your capacity and join the conversation 




Fabo Community Events

Our events bring together members of our learning community so you can build relationships with each other


This year we are hosting monthly hands-on sessions where we take you through learning site design and builds, show you how to add interactive content to your learning site, demonstrate how to build a learning hub for your organisation and teach you how to pull reports on learning activities and course completions. 

There will be hands-on opportunities to work directly on the learning platform with Learning Lab support. 

Throughout the year, we will also host member meetups where you will get a chance to learn from other members and see how they use the Fabo community and platform to support their programmatic work.

All community events are open to all Fabo members. If you are not a member and wish to take part, please write to Sidsel-Marie Winther Prag, our event coordinator at communityweek@fabo.org

Monthly hands-on sessions

Every last Wednesday of the month, Fabo Learning Lab hosts a 1.5-hr session consisting of a demonstration followed by hands-on work by participants. We want to provide frequent capacity-building opportunities so you can regularly join a session to upgrade your Fabo skills. 

The first three sessions are what we call Fabo Basics. We'll take you through the basics of building a learning site on the Fabo platform and show you how to add video and images to your site. You'll also learn create interactive activities for your learning site.

Good to know
These sessions are open to all Fabo members. Make sure you already have a user profile before coming to the session. And you'll avoid too much waiting time if you already have a blank site to work on when we get to the hands-on part of the session.

June: Content library walkthrough

Building a site from scratch can be hard! Especially making it look attractive and feel engaging for the user. Did you know that there is a content library on the Fabo platform, where you can download icons and graphics, interactive exercises, and site templates?

You can also learn about graphic facilitation and download templates for posters. In this session, we will take you on a tour of the content library and show you how it works. After the presentation, you can experiment with using the different content types on your own site.
