Last week NCDD held our December webinar, featuring EnCiv and their "Undebates" tool.
EnCiv is a nonpartisan organization looking to challenge sensationalism and polarization in civic discourse by offering social technologies that power widespread, cross-partisan discussion and better decision making. In this webinar, David Fridley and Adolf Gundersen provided an overview of their latest tool, Undebates, and talked about other discussion processes where a platform of this sort could be helpful, including their Unroundtable tool. Thank you to everyone who joined us and shared your questions and feedback!

EnCiv - Undebates for Organizations
For organizations that are run democratically, getting members to participate - meaning vote, is a challenge. They are forced to compete for people's attention from all the usual sources - social media, mass media, even streaming media. EnCiv allows organizations to create "Undebates" for their elections. It automates the process recording video Q&A with candidates and assembling it into an interactive viewer for voters to review on their own schedule and quickly decide, and it can be shared on social media, and embedded on a website. The same process can also be used to present differing views on ballot measures. For now, you are able to create an account and try it out for free.
