re: Higher Education Taps Teambox For Social Collaboration
I actually took a
class in effective collaboration in globally distributed enterprises and this
would have been a very useful tool. It sounds like it does much of what Google
docs, SharePoint, and even Adobe connect do, but is more educational based. With
prominent Universities sucking up the new service I am sure Teambox will turn
into a standard like Blackboard is for Universities and collaborating team projects.

re: Higher Education Taps Teambox For Social Collaboration
Teambox certainly seems like an innovative tool that is making online and distance learning much more like the traditional classroom. Additionally, it seems like it would allow full integration of all courses within particular programs that require specific types of collaboration and discussion to move to the online format. In some degree programs, there are still unresolved ways of allowing for presentations, for example, to be made by students virtually to their classmates. Hopefully, more institutions will catch on make the process easier.
