- TheMediationRoom- The MediationRoom is a leading provider of software for building bespoke ODR platforms as well as the leading provider of ODR training via its fully accredited distance training course. Its founder and MD, Graham Ross, firmly believes that, for ODR use to advance at a pace to meet need, services should provide disputants with a simple and intuitive interface rather than one that requires them to learn how to use and adapt complex collaboration technologies. The MediationRoom.com is based around a platform for asynchronous text discussion that emulates the traditional techniques for mediation discourse but with the additions of techniques such as anonymous brainstorming, personality profiling and discourse analysis that can help ‘fill the gap’ when in-person mediation is unavailable. Cyberweek visitors can have full experience of TheMediationRoom.com through their own personal roleplay mediation . They can play the part of a mediator or one of the disputants. To participate, email Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org
