Online Tools for Group Projects

Working together is not always easy...some of the challenges include:

  • Bringing together different ideas, finding common ground
  • Bringing together research on your topic
  • Logistics – meeting times, task assignments
  • Keeping up with everyone’s progress
  • Piecing together the patchwork of parts into one coherent project
  • Finding good tools to bring your work together and present it

 A partial list of Tools are available at the bottom of this page
