Due to covid-19, I won’t be doing a study-group at USF as in previous courses. Instead, I’d like to see if we can do something entirely online that’s even better. I’d be interested in hearing any ideas/experiences that might help create something great.
USF has a Zoom account I can use, which allows us to create “breakout rooms” - that might be one option. So I could have a permanent zoom meeting running all the time. Although with breakout rooms you can’t freely go from one to another.
A better option might be Skype, which lets anyone create, join, and leave groups at any time. Or maybe Zoom for a main “virtual study room” and skype groups for separate project groups.
We could use a wiki post to keep a list of what project groups there are, who’s working on them, and have links to separate topics with details of each.
Has anyone participated in any “hackathon” or similar large intensive group project that’s only online, and worked well? If so, what ideas could we borrow?
