Ideas for C U E

CREATE/CONNECT/COLLABORATE

EtherPad

http://etherpad.com/

EtherPad is a really easy-to-use collaboration tool.  It doesn’t require an account…just go to the website, click on CREATE NEW PAD, and start typing.

picture-6A unique URL is generated for your new pad, and you can use it to invite others to collaborate with you.  What’s great about this site is that you can see what others are adding right away.  Each participant chooses a different color to identify their contributions to the document.  There is also a chat window on the right side of the screen for sidebar discussions.  The website suggests all kinds of business uses, but students can use it to collaborate on writing, projects and more.

What ideas do you have for using this wiki-ish site with students?
