A number of technologies can help smooth the difficulty of working in distributed teams. This page lists a few tools being used by SEG committees to get their work done.

Sharing documents

There are lots of options for sharing documents before and during the meeting. For example:

  • Upload documents (preferably PDF or Word) to the SEG e-Communities site
  • Share documents live in Google Docs or some other real-time sharing environment

During the meeting, you could experiment with EtherPad for real-time collaborative note-taking.

Virtual meetings

The SEG subscribes to AT&T's Connect service, which is excellent for hosting web-based meetings. It handles audio and visual aspects — but meetings are supplemented with a phone line too.

If your company has an account with GoToMeeting or WebEx, those are also good options. Only the organizer needs a subscription.
