Collaboration with Google Docs

As Ballarat TAFE students are looking at online collaboration using Google Docs starting this semester, I thought I might share this link with you that comes from the blog kept by a distance education librarian at Connecticut State University.

She talks through her experience of working collaboratively on a paper, and there is some good advice on what worked for her and what didn’t.

Using Google Docs.

    Thanks ladies! I have to say the concept takes some getting used to – it will be interesting to see what you all think about it once you have finished the project.

    Angela I originally commented on April 21st when we were just starting to use google docs. We have completed collaboration on a table of internet terms and have I have just collaborated witha a student in another subject on material for a presentation. I think google docs is very handy and please keep up the good work!

      And you probably know more about this now than I do, as I haveto admit I’ve only read about it, but never actually gone through the process. From your experiences of using it, is there any advice you could offer new users?

        Google docs supports only basic formatting. No landscape orientation, no columns for example. So you need to keep it simple.
