Abstract: It has been determined that students of the School of Education are widely spread throughout the Greater Western Sydney Region and have competing schedules due to being enrolled full time in a course and having a full time job. This makes group assignments a time consuming task and, in many cases, group work and collaboration does not occur in an optimal way. In this regard, we identified a potential use of Google Docs to overcome these obstacles and allow the students to interact and collaborate online, enhancing the learning experience. We set up four different scenarios with academics to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of including Google Docs within units. Preliminary data showed a potential use of Google Docs to facilitate group assignments, to share information with our students and academics, and to gather information via online surveys. We believe this powerful online application can be an excellent resource to overcome students’ isolation.
