  1. 1. { SFSU ISYS 363—Fall 2013– Section 1 Group: Kings
  2. 2. Collaboration Topic Criteria As a team we will be continuously working virtually to complete each task of the project. With some of the students in our group outside of the local area, this will ensure all of the tasks are completed in a timely manner, and with everyone functioning on the same page. Tools considered: • Online file sharing • Online chat/ video conferencing • To Do List • Real-time collaboration • Grantt Chart
  3. 3. Cont. Collaboration Topic Criteria Since we will be communicating virtually for the majority of this project, we will need specific features when choosing an effective tool. Features Needed: • Multiple users allowed to be on one program • Unlimited document uploading • Large amount of data storage available
  4. 4. Tentative Tools Selected Online File Sharing – TeamBox.com PROS: • Can be accessed mobile devices • Up to 5GB storage • Sets due dates • Keeps track of whose accountable for each task CONS: • Only up to 5 users • Group video chatting is not available for free • Only free for first 5 projects
  5. 5. Cont. Tentative Tools Selected Online Chat/Video Conferencing PROS: • Allows group members to actively discuss ideas in real time • Allows real time collaboration between members in different locations • Everyone is on the same page, so less room for miscommunications CONS: • Different schedule constraints can limit the meeting times • Must be used with other collaborative tools • Video chat can easily be impeded by poor connection
  6. 6. Cont. Tentative Tools Selected To Do List PROS: • Gives personalized list for each group member • Free and easy to access • Simple, easy design and interface CONS: • Implies that each element can be worked simultaneously • If listed at more sequential level, fails to establish strict time limits • Doesn’t facilitate communication between tasks and project members
  7. 7. Cont. Tentative Tools Selected PROS: • It is the best way to share ideas • Every member contributes actively which ultimately creates a better project • It encourages debate and constructive criticism • Refreshment* always entice members to attend meetings CONS: • All members are not able to meet • Hard to work around everyone’s schedules • Meetings can easily become less work related Real Time Collaboration (With Food & Drinks)
  8. 8. Cont. Tentative Tools Selected Grantt Chart – TeamWork.com PROS: • Shows dependency between activities within the project • Shows current status using “percentage complete” shading and a vertical “today” line • Good for small projects that fit on a single screen CONS: • Doesn’t work well for larger more complex project • Doesn’t reflect relative size of project elements • Only free up to five members
  9. 9. “Winning” Tool We selected the “To Do List” as the winning tool because this gives every group member a role and various tasks to complete which in turn creates efficient group collaboration.
