About Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI)

Jamboree on the Internet connects Scouts across the world in a similar way to JOTA but using the internet. For this event we have PC with Scout Link IRC and Scout Link TeamSpeak this is monitored for online safety, we also have JOTI Bingo a game played all over this Jamboree all over the world. Also, an Zello IP Radio, these cubs were chatting with an Australian Scout Leader who was on the south coast and was spotting whales!

Thousands of Scouts from almost every country will be here to chat all at once in the IRC Chat rooms, It’s very simple to use, type in the box at the bottom of the page and click Enter to send the text. You will see this appear in the main chat window.

Channel Operator’s (ChanOp) are there to help the users have a visit to ScoutLink as pleasant as possible, they will remove or block messing about so don’t! Both Scouting and Guiding have a law which members promise to follow; keeping your promise while on ScoutLink will prevent most of the problems.

One of the coolest bits of communication on JOTIcafe by JOTI TV. Groups of scouts from all over the globe randomly connect for a video chat, at be Bechamps we will have it on a large projector screen, a virtual scout TV station connecting with scouting all over the globe.
