Yesterday we had our weekly live event in the chat of a Google Doc. I was in and out of the conversation, but it was great to see all the folks there and how the document ended up looking and the information it conveyed.
There are some great opportunities for collaboration with these tools. It really changes how we can work on a single document. Be that a teacher and a student, a group of students, or collaboration between family members or corporate work place.
I have had great success with Google docs in a real setting where I was a student in a class. I have also used them in a more artistic and fun fashion in the ds106 course I have been a part of.
Next week I think I am going to do a “live show” on either uStream or Justin.tv. Stay tuned! Literally!
