How Web 2.0 or Collaborative Tools Help Our Team to Communicate More…

Google Docs

Using Google docs is amazing.

We can easily do all the basics, including making bulleted lists, sorting by columns, adding tables, images, comments, formulas, changing fonts and more. Its just like using Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader, and much more.

We can even upload files like DOC, XLS, PDF, PPT, etc. Usually when we have done on our research, we will just upload it in to Google Docs and share it within the teammates.

Everyone in the team can view and make changes at the same time. There’s an on-screen chat window for spreadsheets, and document revisions show you exactly who changed what, and when. We can also add in more details or comments.

Google Talk

Google Talk is just like a Messenger. During some online meeting we can use Google Talk to have text and video conference, and also allow us to send unlimited files within the team.

Facebook

We have created a private group on facebook, which allow all the team-members get more involved in this project. As all of us have an account, so it became a communication tool to notify us with any new updates within the team.

Below will be the print screen of our facebook group:

Google Doc has a pretty simple yet presentable interface for editing documents. The point whereby we can upload the file to Google Doc and access it at the same time, doing editing, meet-up with the google chat and make changes and even knowing who make what sort of changes, which I think its very amazing.

But still, I realised when the doc is being downloaded into Words, some of the portions can’t be viewed in MS Words. This is one of the disadvantage so far.

Overall, it’s a good attempt for Google.

Thats why some people would rather prefer using Windows Live Workspace allows easy transfer between Microsoft Word, Power Point and Excel.

Google Docs is easy to use but the formatting for doc, xls, ppt, etc files does not run as smoothly as Workspace, and user have to redo their formatting again.

Hey, that’s cool. It is a very effective way for teams to communicate with each other. Everybody can do their respective parts in the project and then compile it effectively without even meeting up with your team mates. Cool…
