I just collaborated online with a cartooning buddy (Simon Kneebone) of mine using dim dim.
I managed to communicate a complex story about a 2 year, community behaviour change project to Simon. My idea is to create a visual-report … less text and more pictures/cartoons to make the final evaluation report more readable, fun and effective.
In dim dim, we had the use of a shared white board and could make edits to shared documents. Using pictures and by writing the occasional word, we were able to effectively “show” each other ideas, concepts and solutions. And all for FREE!
We used the Skype platform to talk to each other … it worked fine with dim dim running simultaneously.
I’m now a convert!
If you know of other visual collaboration tools that are free … let me know!
