Group Projects Enhanced with Google Apps

Studies show that today’s students and instructors are increasingly turning to collaborative or group assignments to create significant and authentic learning experiences.

However, group projects are not always easy to coordinate. Enter Google Apps: tools available at Truman for students and teachers to easily work asynchronously and collaboratively on documents, presentations, drawings and whole websites.

The apps use a “wiki” construct to make this possible. Students can engage in real-time editing between multiple users at once and see what the other people are typing as they type it. Links to shared documents and projects can even be posted on Blackboard to make a class assignment easily accessible.
