Use case for Google Wave: Collaborating on a meeting

I’m experimenting with Google Wave more and more lately.

Use case:  Scheduling and collaborating on a meeting.

In my example I’ve created a wave to accomplish multiple objectives.

1. Set a date and time for the meeting. No annoying ‘reply-all’ emails to try and figure out when people are free.  Here it’s very clear who can attend and who can’t.

2. To communicate the purpose and agenda for the meeting. You can’t see it here, but below the purpose statement is an agenda.  (Nothing worse than getting invited to a meeting if you don’t know what it is about.  Certainly the purpose determines if you are ‘available’ to meet.)  This often isn’t communicated in your standard Outlook meeting invitation.

3. To record people’s thoughts and input. For this particular meeting, participants will be discussing a number of questions.  We’ll all be able to collaboratively capture the input in real-time as others speak in the conference call.

There you have it, everything I need to know about this meeting all kept in one convenient place.

  1. Personally, I use Showdocument for online teaching and web conferencing. I’m not saying these programs aren’t good,
    But I think a web-based application is always better, since there’s nothing to download or install.
