On the call were Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, Diane Huckabay, Clark Quinn, and Jill Hurst-Wahl. We discussed tools we use for online collaboration. Paul pointed to this KQED article as background for the conversation.
Tools we mentioned included:
- Google Docs/Drive
- Adobe Connect
- Blackboard Collaborate (what used to be Elluminate)
- Go to Meeting / Go to Webinar
- Facebook Groups
- Facebook Messenger
- Email discussion boards (as an example of “older” technology that still works well)
It was noted that wikis are not as “hot” as they were 10 years ago. And there was a random mention of Google Wave (w-h-a-t?).
You can hear the episode here as well as through places like iTunes. Our next two shows will be on March 16 (hosted by Paul Signorelli) and then on April 13. (We’re skipping March 30, which is Good Friday.)
