Thing 13: Google Docs, Dropbox, and Wikis

I've now experimented with Google Docs and Dropbox for the first time.

Here's a glance at my Dropbox public folder with a scene of a well-known philosopher who also kicks a football around from time to time. 

At work my colleague and I use a shared network drive to keep materials we both need access to.  It's likely we'll continue with that setup, rather than making use of these tools. 

But I appreciate their value, know our students use them, and will bear them in mind for distance use between unconnected recipients.

I've already made use of wikis, particularly the excellent Oxford Libraries Social Media/Web 2.0 Wiki, to which I contributed a case study of our college's use of social media.  Read all about it.
