Collaborative Writing Pads
Google Docs and Writeboard have been popular websites for creating documents that multiple people can revise at the same time. That being said, sometimes its nice to find a tool that doesn’t require a google account or a sign-in.
I am currently working on Narrative papers with my students. We are doing everything from blogging as protagonists, defining every element of the plotline, to writing rough drafts and editing. It would be nice if the students could type their rough drafts and then have other students view their rough drafts simultaneously and revise it.
A great website for this collaborative work is PrimaryPad:
Why is PrimaryPad great?
- It is free
- Allows up to 15 people collaborating at once
- Saves the document before each change – showing how the document has evolved over time (this is known as TimeGlider)
- Allows for users to chat while revising
- It also allows for you to export the document as a word document or pdf.
- No sign up required!
