  3. 3. Criteria, Concerns, Market Leaders • Criteria: The ability of the web application to meet expected features and incorporate student accessibility. • Concerns: Even though many programs boast increased social connections and educational opportunities, but along with these increased benefits are risks such as the threat to privacy, lack of security, offline accessibility, and student affordability. • Market Leaders – Google Drive: Enables File sharing and group collaboration software – Skype Calls & Messaging: Internationally used video, talk, or chat communication program with over 600 million users. – WeChat: Networking: Mobile communication app boasting over 784 million users. – Google plus : Social media program with superior privacy – Ilearn: Educational website incorporating team meeting opportunities and online assignment and enrichment tools.
  4. 4. Google + Pros • Personal Yet Professional: . Once they are connected you can engage with them to speak on the business opportunities on a professional level that excludes distractions that other software may include. • Creates Community: it allows you to join different communities or even create your own communities that share the same interests as you. Within these communities, you have the option to share videos and photos, host video chats, start events , etc. • Ease of Use: Like many different applications of Google, Google+ is very user friendly and straight forward. The new addition to Google+ is the navigation ribbon that enables the users to access every part of Google+ on every page they turn to without worrying about getting lost. • Accessibility: as long as you have an internet connection you have access to Google+. There is mobile accessibility at all times while you’re on the go and you can automatically back up pictures, videos and video chats by your phone. Cons • Need Internet Connection: As any internet based website, a connection is necessary to connect with others as well as anything that has been posted like pictures and videos. It cannot be individually used as normal software that you can open up on a computer without internet. • Not as Commonly Used: Google+ is second in line to Facebook as a social networker. Though Google has a more professional context within itself, compared to a social networker like Facebook it is second to it. Facebook has over 800 million users compared to Google+ with 90 million. Granted Facebook has been around longer, so who knows in time Google+ may take the lead.
  5. 5. Ilearn as a Collaboration Tool Advantages • Simple user friendly tool that integrates faculty and students • Every time there is a new post on the Forum students get a notification • Being able to edit your post in a forum for a few minutes after it’s been posted • Being able to upload various types of files Disadvantages • Not the most clear, organizational tool for checking deadlines on assignments • Time consuming, having to scroll all the way down to the current week to see an assignment and due date. • Time consuming, attempting to find specific information on assignments, since organization is not optimized • Having to sign in repeatedly, since passwords are not saved and it times out quickly if left idle • Sometimes has maintenance time frames where it cannot be used
  6. 6. Google Drive Pros • Public/Private Access to Files From Anywhere online • Files and Applications Are Not On Computer • Ability to maintain reasonability for your own account and determining who can gain access to the files • Innovative online group word documents, spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations. Cons • Trusting another company to keep your documents secure – if Google docs discontinues their service or undergoes maintenance, files could be temporarily inaccessible or even lost. • Can only access files if you have an internet • Does not support full software suite options (such as complete format editing) of a dedicated desktop office suite program.
  7. 7. Skype Pros • Face to face communication allows for both business and personal voice chatting, instant messaging, and video conference. • Easy to install on multiple platforms and clients. It is also compatible with most network safety measures. • Low cost calling from computers to basic landlines or mobile phones. • Easy to use user interface, allowing for tidy organization and access of contacts. • Available on both mobile clients such as phones and tablets, and computers. Cons • Lacks end to end package quality • Cost money for premium services, voice mail, and conference calling. • High broadband usage (not accessible to low bandwidth networks)
  8. 8. WeChat Pros • WeChat has many users. An estimated 784 million people use it. • While using Group Chat one can add up to 40 people to one conversation while the main competitor, WhatsApp only allows 30. The Look Around option lets the user find others in the same general area. This could be beneficial in a business environment, for example in a meeting. • The Hold To Talk allows the user to record a message and send it. This aspect interests users in China a lot because it takes a long time to type out the Chinese characters. Sending a voice message is a much easier , faster and personable to communicate. • Web WeChat is a really helpful feature. The messaging of WeChat can also be accessed from the web. This is beneficial for people that spend a lot of time at the office, near a computer. Being able to message from a computer also opens up an easier way to share important information. Cons • 86% of its users are in China. The overwhelming number of 784 million is highly dependent upon the Chinese public. • Using WeChat also implies that most individuals have smart phones. Those with more basic phones wont be a part of the communication. • WeChat is a communication tool as well as a social tool. People send voice messages to strangers and shake their phones simultaneously to meet each other. • Exclusively available on smart phones leaving people without a smart phone no access to the program.
