RML Rendezvous: Working Together Apart
Join us for an RML Rendezvous this Wednesday, April 30 at 1:00 pm Pacific Time (2:00 Mountain Time, 12:00 Alaska Time). There’s no need to RSVP. We’ll see you online! To connect to the Rendezvous, go to http://webmeeting.nih.gov/rendezvous at the appointed time. Please sign in with your full name.
Working Together Apart: Online Collaborative Workspaces
Learn about new ways to manage group projects when face-to-face meetings are not possible and e-mail is not practical. Topics covered will include wikis, document sharing, instant messaging, and Microsoft SharePoint. We will also discuss organizational culture issues that can hinder effective online collaboration. After the session, participants will have access to a course wiki they can use to experiment with these new technologies and continue the conversation about how to implement them in our workplaces.
UPDATE 5/6/08: The recording of this Rendezvous is now available, and there’s some interesting conversation happening on the course wiki. Access to the wiki is by invitation only, but contact Alison and she will happily invite you.
