An Opportunity

The current crisis has been a wake up call for many industries, the global network of agencies, studios and collectives who support international development and third sector organisations among them. With researchers unable to travel, at Ooloi we see an opportunity to engage local partners, program staff and frontline workers to engage with the communities they work in. We're proposing a shift in who actually engages in research.


Train Field Staff

Get Notes and Support Realtime

Synthesize Together

Translate your research tools and methods to be executed by staff who engage in target communities already. With our virtual training modules, train field staff anywhere in the world to be able to execute research projects.

The field staff then use our insights, notes and observation contribution systems modified for each project, type of interaction or research tool to share notes every day. Support them in real time to iterate your process, or help them gain better insights with every interaction.

Using our coding, filtering and listing systems, dive into specific notes or sections of notes from the field while you synthesize like you always do. But do it online with the field staff participating and helping you make sense of the very communities they work in and have deep tacit knowledge of.
