Team Collaboration

I may be a little biased, but I believe I am working with a great group of individuals! Last Thursday, we met via Google Hangouts, this was my first time participating in a meeting through any online platform. I have used Hangouts, but only for social calls and with only one person. This call had 5 other people and worked very well. When first getting on the call, I tried to connect through my computer, but was unsuccessful and this was making me late for the call. I then tried my phone and that was successful. We shared many of the same concerns and discussed possible solutions for those concerns. We also shared advice on what to blog about. One of the major things that was discussed was which platform to use to create our E-portfolios. Most of us are using WordPress, while some are using Wix. I began using WordPress in our previous class and kind of just stuck with it since I kind of got the hang of it. I have not explored Wix, but what I have seen while reviewing my teammates sites, the platform is easy to follow. This brings me to the next item we addressed, which was reviewing each other’s sites and providing feedback. We decided on a 2 and 2 method to provide constructive feedback. This is giving two things we like and two things that may need changing or improvements. We also agreed to meet each week to follow-up with each other. This week, I am going to try to get my computer to work with Hangouts, I am pretty sure it is user error. 🙂
