Virtual volunteering is a convenient and powerful way for Volunteer-Involving Organisations to leverage skilled volunteers with Internet access to help build organisational capacity and access specialised skills. This paper identified a gap in the HCI literature in relation to formal, organisation-led virtual volunteering and discusses findings from a recent study detailing the main motivations of virtual volunteers and how ICTs influenced their volunteering experience. Example design considerations and future research opportunities are provided.
