Google sites: a powerful web tool for corporate collaboration
The other day a colleague of mine introduced me to the wonderful wonder of wikis. A wiki is an editable web site that anyone can edit and produce content for (or only a selection of people – that’s up to the editor to decide).
I’ve been a strong defendor of blogs as tools for collaboration. The problem with blogs are that they require a certain amount of computer skills and an interest in publishing something constantly. Besides, the minute you close it to the public, it becomes a hassle. Publishing attachments to a blog is also a bit of a challenge to newcomers. Therefore: enter wikis!
Wikis are flexible and user friendly
I thought wikis were dull, text-only based web sites that would be incomprehensible to anyone other than geeks and web enthusiasts. Not so.
Wikis have become easy to use and entertaining, valuable tools for knowledge sharing and project development.
Google is one provider of free and easy to use web tools through their service Google sites. The service is amazingly user friendly.
