Collaborative tools revisited December 28, 2005

Posted by collaboration in Observations.
trackback

I’ve been using pbwiki now for classes, and it is by far the easiest tool to manage. The simplicity makes it ideal for schools and fast collaboration. I can’t say enough of its ability to allow access to students through a login, but prevents them from changing passwords and settings.

I can hand out login information for a class, then simply change the password to lock it down for the night.

I’ve also looked at Rallypoint for online collaboration of more structured documents. While promising, Rallypoint seems to rely on email accounts as well for registration. Again, this assumes that schools allow email, or have the time to manage email accounts.
