Collaborative Learning

  • PiratePad (248)
    PiratePad is a web-based collaborative real-time editor, allows authors to simultaneously edit a text document, and to see participants' edits in real-time, with each author's text in their own color.
  • Prism (330)
    A Tool for Collaborative Interpretation of Texts.
    Prism is a tool for "crowdsourcing interpretation." Users are invited to provide an interpretation of a text by highlighting words according to different categories, or "facets." Each individual interpretation then contributes to the generation of a visualization which demonstrates the combined interpretation of all the users. We envision Prism as a tool for both pedagogical use and scholarly exploration, revealing patterns that exist in the subjective experience of reading a text.
