Project on Google Doc

Google Doc is a really nice device to use while we thought up ideas for the project. I have never used the chat function of Google Doc, simply because I have yet to find it. For that reason, I am using the document portion of Google Doc. One of the few things I really like about Google Doc is that it allows each of our group members to write on one template. It allows us to input our own piece of writing, change and update various information so everyone receives a turn at giving their own thoughts. Using Google Doc is fairly simple since all we need to do is go onto the link and start typing. The program automatically updates itself, letting each group members know when someone else has made any changes. We also color-coded our work so we each know what we did. I really like the fact that we can access the document whenever we want, and everything will be saved online so we won’t have to worry about any data loss and such.

I have used Google Doc before in other similar classes. The only downfall that I can see is that we can edit each other’s inputs at will, so if one of us accidently erased everything or altered any information, it can get pretty messy. I have not personally experience this kind of problem, but it is a possibility. I have not experienced any difficulty using Google Doc in the past. It has always been the number one program when I do a group project, aside from contacting with each other on Facebook. I can say that in order to prevent any problems such as erasing and altering each other’s work, we should each save our own copies of the project. That way, even if the internet suddenly crashes throughout the world, we can still continue with the project offline.
