I hope you are all enjoying the winter break along with the balmy temps… I’ve barely pulled on my gloves this winter!
I’ve been working with several of you during the break on incorporating collaborative documents into your coursework. Imagine adopting a peer editing program where much of the edit and revision process of major papers, projects and course writing is being collaborated on and facilitated by your students!
The most popular of these collaborative document exchange tools are right here in the Commons (called buddy press docs) and in Google (Google docs). With the Commons and Google groups it makes it highly possible for you to work entirely outside of the Blackboard domain. While these docs are incredibly easy to create, collaborate on and share I’ve created some instructional tutorials complete with photo illustrations so that even novices can be up and running in only a few minutes. You can find these documents in our files section and within the links below.
