Web 2.0 tools to improve collaboration
posted by Moshen - 2010-02-28 - General Blogs

Simple, single functionality tools are great for collaboration. I've been involved in several implementations of larger-scale systems for collaboration (like Content Management). Adoption is generally slow, unless the tool is marketed heavily in the organization and integrated into workflow.

In contrast, simple tools like wikis, Twitter, YouTube, blogs, and social networking services can help to improve collaboration without the challenges of complex software systems. The same can be said of learning management systems. It's much easier to learn a single tool that to learn an entire system. Using technology to improve collaboration provides an introduction to improving productivity through web technologies.
