Week 7: Productivity Tools
I like the variety of tools presented this week. I could definately spend more time checking some of them out to learn more about them and get a feel for their use in work and daily life. I really liked the Google Docs & Google Calendar. I could see using Google calendar in my personal life to keep track of my family's activities. I liked the many templates you can find on the Google Docs site.
I have used both UMCAL and Netfiles so find both of those useful now. Netfiles has been very useful for doing teamwork and sharing documents when you have staff in multiple sites working on a project. We used it to post changes, share photos for powerpoint presentations and post final documents/presentations for future use.
I also checked out some of the other suggested sites and think one of the "To Do list" sites like Ta-da Lists might be helpful. I work in 2 offices and often think of things to do for the other when I'm in the opposite office. Maybe this type of website would be a good way to keep up on that. Another use might be for committee work - so that team members could check things off as they are completed? Don't know if it could work in that way - but might be interesting to try it.
