202 Headache-Saving Process Shortcuts and Tools for Project Management
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Tuesday, March 26
It’s not uncommon for many projects to be organized through chains of email after email. But it’s hard to keep track of all the answers to questions, reviewers’ comments, and version control of the documents you need for managing a project. Is there a way to streamline your project management processes to make them easier to manage and follow?
This session will look at tools that can assist with streamlining the back end of project management. You’ll look at Teamwork Projects, a collaboration and project management tool; Slack, a communication tool; and two reviewing tools—Review My eLearning and Articulate Review—that assist with organizing comments and better facilitate the review process. The session will also take time to crowdsource the tools participants use to simplify their process.
In this session, you will learn:
- How collaboration tools aggregate information and simplify versioning
- How Slack organizes communication, allows for quick answers, and eliminates email clutter
- How eLearning reviewing tools organize SME feedback
- How Teamwork Projects creates links to organize an entire project
