Categorizing Collaboration

Version 3

    Collaborating on and with the web is continually evolving as there are so many new resources that keep appearing. Not to mention the way you an access the technology- via the computer or a mobile phone. 

     

    I started brainstorming a list of items out there by categories - this is not a comprehensive list and I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas. As you review the list- think about the following questions.

    • What categories would you add? 
    • What is the collaboration tool that you can't live without?
    • Are there any tools that you would stay away from? Hard to use with students or not reliable?
