    • 8. TOOLS USED IN COURSEDEVELOPMENT (n=11) • Users asked to list tools used over the development of their course
    • 9. TOOLS USED IN COURSEDEVELOPMENT (n=11) Tools that support co-creation of content were most frequently cited (Etherpad, Googledocs) Means our users are doing *a lot* of copying and pasting...bummer. Why Etherpad? • “The P2PU website did not seem to be a place where Only one respondent worked entirely in you batted around ideas” P2PU.org for course development • “There was nowhere to draft a course.” • “Feel like there’s a social aspect that’s missing--quick communication with people.”
    • 10. COLLABORATIVE WORK 25 • How many 15 people did you 6 work with on 6 your P2PU 3 course? 2 2 • Answer 2 includes 1 respondent 1 1
