Time and space to work together
The group needs enough time when everyone is available to meet. You also need a space that has everything you need for your work, for example tables, internet access and a quiet environment. You should consider:
- physical spaces on campus (libraries, cafés, lawns, labs)
- working together online (simple chat software, meeting software like Adobe Connect)
- online document sharing, such as Google Docs.
There is a lot of useful software for group work, including free versions. Some online resources may have already been provided for your unit of study.
