Collaborative writing software online with Writeboard. Write, share, revise, compare. - 6 views

    Only useful if someone contacts you to edit a document, or if you upload a document and contact them. More person to person, then person to internet community.
    Writeboard is a collaborative document creation tool that can be used between a number of people. This tool quick for anyone to start up. On the homepage you can create your document to be edited by naming the document, then provide your email address. Once the wrtieboard is created you can begin typing! Once the document is complete you can invite people to view and edit your document as well as leave comments. Once the document has been edited by another person, you will be able to compare your document with the newest edited document.
    One of the challenges I faced when using this tool is the format of the document when typing. In order to indent or make a word bold or italic, a special code needed to be entered. For example, to make the word "Introduction" bold, you would have to type *Introduction*. This actually slowed my typing down, but I feel if this is a tool that you use often, these are codes you could catch on to. The strength of this tool is the option to invite anyone to edit. I feel that this would be useful for teachers to communicate back and forth to share activities and edit them. Or it could be useful as an assignment for students to share a paper and to edit the others. This would help their editing skills. I also like the option to compare and contrast your original document with one that has been recently edited. I think this would be helpful in seeing what improvments were made and choose whether or not you'd like to accept them.
    I think that this tool would be better for high-school students, or any teacher. The tool would be difficult for anyone younger to use.

Yonkly - 1 views

    Yonkly is a resource very similar to Twitter. To quote from its website it "allows you to create a white-label microblog community that is fully customizable". This resource would allow someone to keep up with the user of Yonkly. It's extremely easy to navigate, and while complicated when you read into all the technical aspects of it (like I did), it really is a good alternative tool for social networking.
