Collaboration involves individuals working together in a coordinated fashion, towards a common goal. Collaborative software facilitates this process over geographic distances by providing online tools for communication, document sharing, and problem solving. SharePoint and GoogleApps are two such tools.
Sharepoint has been used by WesternU faculty and staff for internal document sharing since 2007. In 2011, SharePoint became the primary system for the online delivery of course materials in the colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Dental Medicine, Podiatric Medicine, and Optometry
Google Apps was introduced to the campus community in 2010 and continues to the collaboration tool of choice for some WesternU colleges.
GoogleApps is a set of communication and collaboration tools designed to help faculty, staff and/or students stay connected and work together more effectively. Anyone with a WesternU email account can access these tools from any computer, tablet, or smart phone through WesternU’s Google Apps homepage.
