The JJIE Virtual World Project uses multiple Gmail calendars, timelines, and spreadsheets in Google Docs as time management tools. These communication tools help us track the details for developing 3D scenarios, collaboratively writing real news journalism and producing inworld machinima for journalism documentaries. Part of our team’s learning experience during this project is our work to determine the most effective way to use the opensource Google Doc apps to manage our project. Our final methods and document templates will be included in our project’s Tool Kit Manual (available for download from this website in early 2016).
We have included a calendar below to give you an overview of the project and a look at some of the specific tasks involved in completing our multidisciplinary project.
