Collaboration Nation

One of the great things about all of the new tools in information technology is the ability to collaborate on group projects. A few of the tools I like are: Google Docs, Zohowriter, and Write board. These are web tools that allow students or co-workers to work together on projects simultaneously even if they are not in close proximity of each other. You just set up an account and set up who is allowed to access the document. Each user can edit and publish the shared document and see who has made the changes and in most cases (when). This has great implications for use in distance learning and group projects. With more people being able to interact and collaborate with each other the result is more free exchange of information.
