Abstract: The report presents online collaboration tools. Those are tools for video conferencing, tools for asynchronous communication, like chat and file sharing, and online whiteboarding tools. Then the report discusses 24 methods and exercises useful to facilitate and support collaborative designing and prototyping practices. The first three exercises were applied during CBS workshops focusing on business modelling and supporting the CMDF establishment. The other 21 methods presented, are part of the Design Thinking Toolkit used with FIT. The last section of the report grants insights to Siemens practical experience when introducing DIY technologies and related collaborative methods to new and inexperienced participants.
