Low-Cost Test and Quiz Tool Comparison

Tony Karrer

He helped me pull together the following evaluation of a few different solutions: ClassMarker Quia ProProfs Google Docs Forms Creator, and Quibblo. Google Docs Forms Google Docs has a built-in Form document type that allows the creation of a set of questions. This can be an interesting quiz / test tool especially if you already use Google docs.

Social Software Adoption

Tony Karrer

An example of that is the adoption of Distributed Content Editing via an agreed to technology such as Wiki, Shared SharePoint Documents, Google Docs, etc. You can find all sorts of interesting resources via eLearning Learning around Adoption.

Real-Time Collaborative Editing

Tony Karrer

Doesn't Google docs already do all of this? When you have several people editing a document at the same time in Google Docs, it takes about 5 seconds for an edit to show up. Google Spreadsheet handles real-time editing (using the cells as protectors) much better.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

One was having a small (7 person) project team get together on a conference call and have all of us editing the status report real-time via Google Spreadsheets. For some (inexplicable) reason, Google Docs does not.

Help Create Resources for Keynote?

Tony Karrer

I'm not sure how we will create these (Google Docs, Wiki, Mindmap, etc.). I'm doing a keynote presentation at ASTD TechKnowledge in January on New Work Literacies and eLearning 2.0 and another session on Learning 2.0. I would really like to be able to point attendees, blog readers, and realistically a lot of other folks to a set of resources that would help them on these topics. But, I really don't have time to create what I want to create.

Learning Professionals Leaders

Tony Karrer

This makes using something like google docs or pbwiki as an experiment somewhat difficult for the poor, lonely learning professional. On this month's Big Question - Lead the Charge - we are already seeing some interesting responses. The Learning Revolution: Where have all the leaders gone? It's difficult to not agree with everything that's in Tony's post an my short answer would be: yes they should, and the good ones already are.

Tools Used

delicious, Picassa, Ning, Google Docs/Google Apps, Second Life, Blogger, iGoogle, orkut, FriendFeed, Internal workplace community, PBWiki, Xing, Digg, Friendster (really?), I've been working with Steve Wexler and the eLearningGuild on the eLearning 2.0 survey and report.

New Work and New Work Skills

Clark Quinn

Well consider the following: I effectively use the Google filetype operator? I know what does the Google "~" operator does? I'm good at collaboratively working with virtual work teams and use Google Docs or a Wiki as appropriate in these situations My strong belief is that the foundations of knowledge work are changing fairly quickly and most of us learn completely through ad hoc mechanisms that are not likely to yield good coverage.

Importing HTML into Google Docs spreadsheets

David Weinberger

Rick Klau points [ g+ ] to a feature of Google Docs spreadsheets I didn’t know about (although I’m far from a spreadsheet maven): It can automatically include a table from any HTML document accessible on the Web. Wouldn’t it be useful to be able to import a single element into a Google spreadsheet, even if it’s not in a list or a table?

Google Docs path to competency

David Weinberger

I use Google Docs a lot because I frequently want to share my drafts with some set of people and because no-frills writing software keeps me from distracting myself with frills. But, as a writing tool, Google Docs heads us back to somewhere between NotePad and a 1998 wysiwyg HTML editor. For it to catch on for anything more than the occasional shared doc, it needs to add a whole bunch of features that leverage its social usage.

Every business document should be in the cloud and concurrently editable

Ross Dawson

I’m at the Melbourne Google Enterprise Atmosphere on Tour event , the first of 25 events around the world. I am doing the keynote on The Evolution of Business at the Melbourne and Sydney events, giving an external perspective which happens to be highly aligned with the Google vision. The event included a Google Apps demo. The demo seemed to be over-emphasizing the concurrent editing and collaboration features of Google Docs, which I think of as pretty basic.

9 great ways to make the iPad a useful work tool: structures, setup, apps

But they are basically useless because there is no easy way to access and edit documents hosted on cloud servers such as Dropbox , Google Docs , or Box.net. After spending some time with them when I first bought an iPad, I have pretty much settled on Documents To Go, occasionally using the others, for example when I want to open a Google Doc at the same time as a document on Dropbox. Office doc formatting.

Collaboration, Communication, and Cooperation

On a recent #lrnchat , a colleague shared how she was collaborating on presentations using Google Slides. And I’ve done much important work with others using Google Docs and Sheets.

Social Media Policy?

Clark Quinn

Other social media tools I use for specific things include Yammer, Skype, and of course dedicated tools like Google Docs of various sorts, Doodle, and more. I’m not a big user of Google Plus, but if IFTTT did have that as a recipe, I would post there too. So what’s your social media policy? It’s not something you should do lightly, or haphazardly, it seems to me. In fact, such a policy really is part of your personal knowledge mastery.

On bubbles within bubbles

Doc Searls

Facebook, Google and Twitter have consumers and customers that are different populations. Ever tried to get personal service from Google or Facebook? Our dependency on Google alone today verges on the absolute. Facebook envies operating Google-grade user containment systems (e.g. Gmail, Google docs, etc.)

Being clear on collaboration

Clark Quinn

Google Docs), but it’s central. Twice recently, I’ve been confronted with systems that claim to be collaboration platforms. And I think distributed collaboration is one of the most powerful options we have for accelerating our innovation. So in each case I did some investigation. Unfortunately, the claims didn’t hold up to scrutiny. And I think it’s important to understand why. Now, true collaboration is powerful.

Be careful declaring a product category as “done”

And then Google Maps erupted on the scene, and demonstrated that not only was mapping not done, it really had only begun. But then how do you explain Google Docs? Tireless and timeless software commentator Dave Winer recently declared that "web browsers are done. Feature complete." His point is that product categories stop evolving, and when they reach that point of maturity, all that's left are the occasional tweaks to maintain compatibility with the latest platforms.

Thoughts on privacy

Doc Searls

And they lord over what Bruce Schneier calls a feudal system : Some of us have pledged our allegiance to Google: We have Gmail accounts, we use Google Calendar and Google Docs, and we have Android phones. In Here Is New York , E.B. White opens with this sentence: “On any person who desires such queer prizes, New York will bestow the gift of loneliness and the gift of privacy.”

Documents: Dead or grizzled survivors?

David Weinberger

Indeed, the document the task force is working on is a Google Doc where we are tussling by writing (and over-writing) collaboratively, using the built-in, minimal chatting function. My friend Frank Gilbane has unearthed an issue of my old e-zine from 1998 in which I proposed that documents are dead, and in which he counter-proposed that they are not.
