Teaching staff: Embedding Google Wave into my.wbs

On August 4th 2010 Google announced that they will no longer be developing Google Wave: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2010/08/update-on-google-wave.html . Clearly then it would not make sense for WBS to continue to develop for it or to advise on its use in Teaching and/or Research.

Google Wave is an online service that integrates the best features of email, instant messaging, wikis, social networking and project management to help groups of people communicate and collaborate on projects in real time. In an educational context it provides a whole new way for your students to work in groups.

It is now possible to embed Google Waves directly into my.wbs. If you think this might be useful for your teaching or you just want to know more, please let us know. Depending on the interest in this area we are planning future developments to improve further the integration.

Happy waving!
