ITM 501 Session Long Project Mod 4

timer Asked: Feb 26th, 2013

Question Description

prepare a brief paper describing what you've heard about how people use shared groupwork tools -- any information processing activities involving the joint effort of people separated in time and/or space and sharing their common information "in the cloud". -- perhaps it's based on some earlier experience of your own, perhaps on conversations with others and second-hand reports, perhaps it's just by reading about them, perhaps just on speculation projected from anything that you have heard. describe what you've heard about utilization -- benefits, problems, things to come, etc. think about what you might be able to do if you did have full access to such tools -- either taking advantage of them to do things that you might want to do, or protecting yourself against their use if you don't like them. basically, your task here is to review what you know and don't know about such groupwork tools, and relate them to your own purposes and goals and potential behavior. feel free to extrapolate from what you do know to what you don't know -- just make it clear when you are doing so. remember, the aim is to relate the topic to your own experiences of it, present or future. as we noted in the last module, you won't always be stuck on the fringes of the information world; being ready to re-enter it is always something to think about!
