Collaborating Virtually

How to Collaborate Virtually

Communicate Clearly

  • Choose 1 platform to communicate for the duration of your project
    • Slack, Email, Text, Chat, Shared documents, or even Zotero for research papers

Make a Plan

  • Divide Tasks evenly among the group members (be gracious towards members that may have certain technology or access available to them)
  • What tools are you going to use? How are you going to collaborate?
  • How, What platform, and when are you going to communicate?
  • Has your original plan changed? How are you going to adapt your project with minimal work to still be a great project?
