Technology Tools to Advance Co-Creation

TECHNOLOGY TOOLS TO ADVANCE CO-CREATION

This list began in Open Space at the Learn/Share Lab for Co-creative Impact and Innovation in Chiang Mai. Thailand (Feb 2014). Overall consensus was that there are very few actual “co-creative” technologies available, but that there is a plethora of technologies that can support co-creative work.

Please help round out this list by adding links to the tools you use?

Co-Creation/ Collaborative/working together/co-creating materials -

  • Google docs

  • Hackpad (limited features, create a heading, text or comment on a document),

  • Blackbaud

  • Adobe Connect (?)

  • Open Ideo; trying to come up with solutions to problems, old school forums like Omidyar.net (now at ned.com) but they are largely out of favor these days,

  • Edgeryders is another example of an online forum,

  • Wikis are great,

  • Github which is an open source code repository,

  • Yammer
