Open Web Tools for Teaching and Learning (Series): Session #3: Collaborative Documents

In this series of hands-on workshops, we will explore and try different kinds of free, open web technologies many of which are hosted here at TRU. Discussions will include comparison of different kinds of applications, demonstrations, and planning for use in your classroom including diligence on privacy and FIPPA requirements. Each session will focus on a different kind of technology or application (see below).

Two sessions will be held for each workshop: one in person on TRU campus, another online via Big Blue Button and/or Greenlight web conferencing. Participants are free to attend either session, or both. *Online sessions will be available to the general public, as well as TRU faculty, staff, and students.

Upon registration, you will receive email confirmation which may include readings or resources related to the session. Enrollment for TRU campus sessions is limited to 15 participants per session. There is no limit to enrollment for online sessions.

Session #3: Collaborative Documents

In this session we will explore features, functionality, and user experience of a number of collaborative document applications including: Google Docs, Etherpad, and others. We will compare features and functionality of these applications, and discuss compliance with provincial privacy legislation (FIPPA). By the end of the session, participants will be able to discuss affordances of a number of collaborative document applications and create a lesson or educational resource using docs for immediate use in their classroom or another setting.
