ScHARR Library Bite Size #7 - uSpace Documents, PBWorks and Disposable Web Pages

 Posted by Anthea

Our next bite size session is on Thursday 24th March at 2.30pm in the Pemberton room. The session is all about tools for collaborative documents and workspaces. Details below, hope to see you there!

uSpace Documents, PBWorks and Disposable Web Pages
Fed up of email attachments clogging up your inbox? Collaborating with others on a document and struggling to know which is the most recent version? Spending lots of time collating comments on a document? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this could be the session for you!
This session will cover several ways to make collaborating on writing documents a whole lot easier.  You may already be familiar with uSpace, but did you know you can upload documents allowing others you are working with to edit and add comments.  In addition, in this session we will also look at the Wiki PBWorks, which is a free online workspace which allows the easy creation of a project website which can be used for discussions and to upload documents to name a few functions. Finally, we will show you how to create disposable web pages – web pages that are easy to create and that self-destruct after a maximum of 90 days – great for any short-term project work you want to do.
So, come along, see what’s what, and help make email attachments a thing of the past!
As usual, bring your drinks and we will provide the cake!
