Students will use the web tool Sync.in to create an outline about a content topic or theme as they collaborate and edit information for a project or unit of study. Students will work in small groups (2-4) and utilize the authorship color-code feature in Sync.in to identify each student's contributions. The instructor will also be a group member of the document and will be able to use the "time slider" feature in Sync.in to playback the evolution of the document to analyze and evaluate student contributions and learning.
