Toolbox Tips

Online Collaboration

This is the main communication tool of this hackathon community. See announcements from the organisers  find a group or a team, ask questions, draft projects…  As a team you can have a group video call (up to 15 people) and link all your shared docs. You can use integrated features to quickly scheduling meetings or have a poll (Doodle), set up a quick poll in (Polly)...

  Work simultaneously on documents and excel sheets, store your files, set up polls and schedule meetings. Most of you are very familiar with Google tools. Also check out Microsoft 365 if you are more familiar with their tools.

 Simply brainstorming and mind-mapping, and many more features. Check out this video.

 Collaboration whiteboard for project management, mindmaps and brainstorming, story maps, etc. See an overview in the video on their homepage.

 Manage your project, distribute tasks, keep track of your “TO DOs” and many more. Have a look at this video.

Video Tools 

You will be asked to “pitch” your project at the end of the hackathon.  It needs to be 3 minutes or less.

The “pitches” can be recorded “live” on Zoom . Please set up, practice any screen sharing or webcam shots you want. You have 3 minutes.

If instead you want to produce a pitching video, Keep it SIMPLE (and under 3 minutes). The idea is to spend time hacking, rather than producing a video: we are looking for content, not the fanciest design. It doesn't matter if your video shows text, graphics with background music or if it simply shows you talking. Here are some ideas and tools that you could use:

  • Recording with your smartphone (with paper & pen support)

The most straightforward process is to make a video of yourself talking and explaining your solution. You could simply use paper and pen if you want to illustrate something.

Below are some more tools and ideas that might help you to add a title or other features.

  • Recording of a team call If you want to show the whole team, you can record a team call on Skype/Zoom/Slack or any other platform that you use.
  • Powerpoint It´s easy to make a video out of your PowerPoint Slides. Simply click on “Export as” and choose “video”. Watch this video to see how it goes.
  • is an online tool to create and post videos. Watch this video to see how it goes.
  •  Canva is a very straight forward and easy-to-use online design tool. You can design posters and flyers and … videos. Watch this video to see how it goes.
  • iMovie In case you use an Apple device you can go with iMovie. It is easy to create and edit videos here.

You have another easy-going tool at hand? Let us all know in the Slack channel #D1HH_community We are happy to add further tools to the list here.
