IS 02 – Collaboration

Today we discussed collaboration and how information systems can support it.  We looked at several aspects of collaboration, including the importance of trust and the need to share information and build a shared understanding of a situation.  We discussed three possible roles for information technology in supporting collaboration:  communications, resource (document) sharing, and project management, and we briefly looked at some possible tools you might use to support collaboration on your teams including Google Docs & Calendars, and Wiggio.

What tools do you use to collaborate at school and at work?
