    • 9. Winner is Google Docs • We all came to the conclusion that Google Docs is the most efficient and effective form of communication that will work for our group as the main form of communication. We can work on the project all at the same time and edit to our best ability all at once. This makes collaborating on assignments and projects very convenient and sensible.
