Collaborative online note-taking

with one comment

Wirelessly-connected audience members collaboratively take notes on presentations, using Google Wave.

I’m still wondering what this divided attention implies for the way presenters structure their presentation. Should it become less dense? Should there be pauses to allow the note-takers to catch up? I seem to remember a post by Howard Rheingold in which he and his students negotiated periods of listening and periods of online networking during his sessions, but I can’t find it…

(I have some Google Wave invitations going if anybody want one.)

  1. This looks interesting, sadly as I can’t touch type I find it hard to keep tweeting or taking notes on a laptop and listen to what’s being said up the front! I would definitely need a pause for note-taking I think, which could make a presentation feel a bit disjointed for those who prefer not to join in on such things and simply want to listen and absorb.
