The networked society is here. Knowing how to navigate such a world is more important than ever and tools such as stakeholder mapping are increasingly relevant to that end. Given this context, in this project you will learn how to enhance the functionalities of a very powerful mapping framework (Kumu), by connecting it to Google Forms. Such a setup allows for the creation of exponential relationship maps, that can grow with inputs from many people, without them having to get familiarized with Kumu or any other mapping tool. This learning journey will be framed around the creation of a "form-fed map" that will be immediately useful for you to map your own network of colleagues, friends, and relatives. Note: This project works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.


Previous familiarity with Kumu, google forms and spreadsheets is relevant.
