Collaborating With Documents and Sharing Files . . . Digitally

Collaboration Tools: Blackboard, Google Docs, BoxOn Wednesday, November 12, 2014, 3:30-4:30 pm in JBWS 180, we’ll address digital approaches to collaborating on files and documents.  We’ll explore three cases of technologies to get at questions of what and how we share, as well as how we can do virtual collaboration better. Our three technologies will be:

  • Blackboard courses for committee work and other administrative needs (Brenda Adrian)
  • Google Docs for collaboration in the Instructional Technology department and the General Education Renewal Committee (Rebecca Frost Davis)
  • Box for sharing files and collaborative meeting notes (Joana Trimble)

By talking through these case studies, we will consider how we need to share documents, files, and folders and what features would make that sharing easier.

Please come prepared to share the cases where you collaborate on documents or share files and your most desired feature for that sharing.  If you have other tools you use, we’d love to hear about those, too.

Snacks will be provided.
