Michael Farina's lecture on Collaborative Editing Tools, delivered to Yale faculty at Yale's Collaborative Learning Center.

Farina, Senior Lector in the Italian Department, discusses a number of collaborative text editing tools beyond the Yale Library’s MS Sharepoint software. He introduces a number of alternatives and solutions for collaborative writing that go beyond the "Yale bubble," including TextFlow (one of his favorites), DocVerse (one heck of an Office add-on), EtherPad (another favorite), doingText, WriteWith, WriteBoard (his staple), and TokBox.

Alternatives such as these have finally allowed researchers to move beyond sharing documents through email for the coordination and editing of collaborative writing and co-authored articles.

His presentation was given on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009: Election Day.

  • michaelfarina Michael Farina, Senior Lector of Italian at Yale University So Docverse, as you know, was bought by Google about 8 months ago. Today, they just re-released their version.

    It's called Cloud Connect.

    Google's new version of Docverse is an add-on/plug-in for Microsoft Word, which will seemlessly integrate Word and Google Docs. Multiple authors can edit and sync at the same time. If you were still wondering, the cloud is here.

  • michaelfarina Michael Farina, Senior Lector of Italian at Yale University A brilliant solution for collaborative users on opposite sides of the PC divide: for those stuck in Microsoft Office and the desktop and those who have migrated to the cloud and Google Docs.

    Real collaborative writing while using the two different systems:

  • michaelfarina Michael Farina, Senior Lector of Italian at Yale University For any Sharepoint/Outlook collaborative document users, a new plug in by Harmony bridges the Word Google Docs divide:

    Harmony has a free plug-ins that brings Google Docs documents and Microsoft SharePoint document libraries directly to Microsoft Outlook. Once downloaded, Harmony for Google Docs will open in a sidebar pane within Outlook. The new Harmony sidebar enables people to share a single, centralized copy of the document, eliminating the many intermediary steps associated with sending e-mail attachments back and forth. The plug-in allows users to locate, share, and work on Google documents directly from their email client.

  • michaelfarina Michael Farina, Senior Lector of Italian at Yale University Big news for huddle: now integrated with MS Office, so it's like docVerse now, but with all the web conferencing and project management tools.

  • michaelfarina Michael Farina, Senior Lector of Italian at Yale University While I was delivering my presentation yesterday, TechCrunch posted a piece on DocVerse. It's a very nice summary of my discussion of the Office add-on:
